Devon Indoor Rowing Champs - Exeter 16/9

Postby Gammmmo » July 15th, 2017, 10:03 am

This one is a 5K. I did it last year and it was good fun and well organised. Hoping to go again if possible and if I can finally get into the 17s and be vaguely copetitive as a lwt. Anyone else interested?

TPK - yes, do it if you can...it's organised by Exeter based "Fitness Matters" and last year's was very slick but also quite a small/friendly affair. Quite a few people watching and to chat to too, and a big overhead screen so you can follow the heats (generally 8 people at a time dependent on the time you declare). Last year in my LWT heat I declared 18:10 and was put in the top heat - needless to say I finished with 18:09 and came second from last :oops: , with the winner on ~17:36 !!

enjoying my taper.... :D

Thoughts:

18:09 or slower = disaster
18:00 - 18:08 = the minimum
17:59 or faster = pleased
17:55 or faster = on a high for a few days :D

Go for it! Sounds like a very good day and I imagine well supported - helps when the adrenaline is flowing

I'll certainly give it my best shot on the day! Cheers. I recognise one name in my heat who clocked 17:40 last year.... :shock:

The link posted this morning works again so you can see everything in Excel rather than the cutdown version I pasted earlier today.

@Rohan/Henry - thanks guys. My OH is even having a go and she's only been on an erg literally about 8 times (she doesn't train properly at all)...pulled 21:28 earlier this week so will be looking for a new PB.

And.......exactly the same time as last year - 18:09!! :roll:
Immediately didn't feel good - had planned to go through the first 1000m in ~1:47 and was off that straight away and from there I was seeing alot of 150s and 149s. The average actually slipped to 1:49.7 at one point but sheer pride saw me get that down to 1:48.9 by the end. I finished absolutely spent but during the majority of the effort I felt a little "blocked". The only difference I can point to is I messed up my taper. So....pretty disappointed with that. TBF my PB is beginning to look like a bit of an aberration at the moment!! Prior to that my best scores have been 18:02 (in 2005!), and then 18:06 and 18:08 in the past 3-4 months I guess, then 18:09 in this comp last year. What I need now is to bounce back with a big PB at 30mins....onwards!!

OH clocked 21:10, a PB by 18s, so is getting the newbie gains (fewer than 10 times on an erg!). V proud!!

Looked to me like you were digging deep from quite early on Paul and I was most impressed how you fought through the middle and end - that looked really tough. I was curious about your start. What advantage do you think you gain from the 10-ish strokes arms only at the beginning? Whatever, it was a tough heat and you held on really well....so congrats.
