Top heavyweights are often below 100kg, you are certainly not a middleweight. That class will never come btw.
A sub7 program will be pp like.

Congrats on the new PBs Marius. More to come from you I have a feeling! That sub 17 5K is impressive for sure. That is a light crowd over 40 that can do that.

I believe I saw an announcement some time ago regarding a indoor rowing competition that would test out MWT next year, but do not remember which one.
At the end of a training week I'm now around 89kg in the morning, but use the weekends to eat my weight up again so I start a new week at 91kg :lol:

The SUB7 program might be a PP clone but it is still a change that is welcome. I can do max 5 sessions(and try to limit them to max 1 hour) of rowing per week so I guess there are limitations to what kind of programs I can use. Currently rowing about 50K's a week.

Could be true, but in rowing itself lightweight 72kg boat and 75 in winter (erging), and no middleweight.

You surely need to eat enough, but weight itself is not holding you down, lightweight wr is 5.56. And years ago a guy pulled 6.02 at 69 kg.

You are doing fine atm, I only try to tell you, you could do very well. But for that extra time is needed. If you can,t train more you can,t. Enjoy and learn. See how you end up this winter and after that you could always see what you can do. This is not the time to make big changes. You improve still rapidly, so it works, these are the newby early gains. But gains are gains!

Been away for a while on vacation, but thought I'd let you guys know I got a new 5K PB.

1000m 3:28.4 (1:44.2) @30spm
2000m 3:30.0 (1:45.0) @29spm
3000m 3:31.7 (1:45.8) @29spm
4000m 3:31.4 (1:45.7) @30spm
5000m 3:26.1 (1:43.0) @31spm

Ending time was 17:27.6 (1:44.7) @29spm. Was a miserable humid day, so not very good for breaking personal records. I think that I have a sub 1:44 in me this season if I get around to doing another!

You definitely have Bill. Probably more of a mental obstacle than a fitness issue. The humidity must have had a notable effect, it would have killed me

@lwtguy - Very impressive 5K time :) I'm pretty sure you will go sub 1:44 avg pace on your next try
@kerosene - Very nice improvements with good pacing :)

2K TT this morning. Empty stomach, only water(note to myself; never try this again in the morning and on an empty stomach :lol: )
Struggled getting into the race pace in the beginning and knew I had started too fast when I saw estimated finish around 6:10-6:12.
Settled down to the target pace 1:34.5 and kept it to the finish. An improvement of 6.2 seconds from my previous PB.

Time Meters Pace Watts Cal/Hr S/M
6:17.0 2,000m 1:34.2 418 1737 36
1:33.7 500m 1:33.7 425 1762 35
1:34.5 1,000m 1:34.5 415 1725 36
