Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

https://imgur.com/gallery/fle7HyX I’m nowhere near fit enough to even think about a solstice HM, having not gone over 4K yet, but decided to get in the spirit at least and try my first 5k. I’m pretty happy with it for my first time! Congratulations. You just went 25% further than you ever have befo...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

I got a PB on my HM as part of the Solstice Challenge on Friday - took 26 seconds off with a 1:20:22 (1:54.2) Nothing terribly exciting but I was happy to get a PB on a longer row as I haven't had one for a while. As usual I went a little too fast to start but I felt good from 21,097 to 10,000 to g...

Full marks for pushing on and completing it... although I may knock a mark off as it wasn't your usual 10 miler :wink:
Hahahaha, I just didn't quite have enough time. Too much procrastination pre-row, and I almost programmed in 12.5k!

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Thanks fellas, I'm feeling rough now so I'm guessing that I'm coming down with something. @Anth, I have usually done everything at 130ish but I have recently reduced it, as I had aggravated my lower back a little bit, and I have been edging it back up again so this was done at 124. I might leave it ...

Not a pleasant session and I struggled for the majority of this. I just had lower than usual energy and enthusiasm, but these days are the important ones: when you don't want to, but you find a way through the excuses and self pity.

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Was focussed on getting to 25x10k in the month. I couldn't motivate myself to do 10k a day at that point without taking them more easily. Probably should have put a plan together, but took the easy option. I was also thinking about the Pete Plan guidance: "when in doubt, go slower". I have two obse...

Re: Row then lift or lift then row?

I now separate out my weights and rowing on to separate days but when I didn't, I always rowed first as I'm like Ombrax, rowing was more important and the weights were ancillary to rowing rather than a primary goal

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Currently I'm doing two intervals sessions (one short, one longer), a faster ss and a long ss row per week. I'm getting fitter, but I haven't got my head round the physiological effects of the training mix yet. When I did a bunch of slowish 10ks in March, that just made me better at slowish 10ks. T...

also, I know nobody has said anything, but I want to make sure to say, that I'm sorry about saying my 2:20:00 pace is slow. it may be, it may not, especially for others who are new on this forum, I don't want to assume I know what a good pace is, or put others off who might not have that pace down ...

Re: Rowing strapless...

I'm really learning to control my stroke when I row strapless and I have got it down to 1:45 pace. It feels weird to start with but that's a good thing as I'm obviously challenging myself.

I'm not sure I'll ever build up to a 6k TT though!!

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Yeah, a HM is 21,097m and it's not a saved workout: only the FM is saved as standard.

I only use the Select Workout / New Workout / Single Distance to get it set up
