I guess many people will argue its not important, however in the case of the 30R20 its pretty important as the rating is an important part of the test and give or take a couple of strokes is all that is allowed real...

Re: VO2max calculator is a joke!

Nothing wrong with 2k+25” (2:28/500m in your case) paced long SS pace for starters. Work your way down to 2:23 of course but give it time.

Re: Thinking of adding the kettlebell swing to my KB routine

Don’t have to. Routed to floor drain and sump pump. But it’s 5 to 10 gallon per day in 90°+ weather and very expensive to produce.
