Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

24,100 meters today and well and truly spent.
130,000 for the week.
430,430 meters for the fall team challenge to finish 107 overall.
Missed 5 days of rowing out of 30.
Think I’ll have a couple of days off then work on shorter distances and try and improve my pace.

Re: Is there a correlation between sleep requirements & fitn

I’m one of those that get away with 4 or 5 hours sleep a night regardless of how much or little training I do. When I go to bed I’m normally asleep in 10 minutes or so and generally sleep right through. Also do a manual job hauling heavy gas cylinders around for 10 / 12 hours a day for the last 20 y...

21,098 meters in 1:30:47 @22 spm. Nearly 2 minutes quicker than a couple of weeks ago. Shame I didn’t have my glasses on as set the distance 1 meter too long couldn’t rank the work out doh!!

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Passed the Million meters today, and really enjoying erging. Hi Dave. No background is cycling - only ever done one triathlon...a 70.3 which I got round in 4hrs 38mins without taking it too seriously (my transitions alone cost me an extra 5 mins!) but TBF it was a fast course and decent day. No, the...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

4 x 5000 with 5 min rest doing slow rowing. 25 spam around 21:30 for each 5000. Trying to build endurance. Sizeable amount of volume there...I note your forum username...so have you done the Norseman IM? If so, that might explain the volume of your erging session! Hi Gammmmo yep done Norseman 5 tim...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Had another go at a HM. First hour went pretty well but getting very hot and leaking big time. Then started to get serious pain in the butt, to the point couldn't sit. Had to stop and go find s cushion to sit on and even then still struggled. Was a real grind ro finish. 21,097m 1:32:39 25spm avg HR ...

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

Not fast, but happy, improved my 30 minute row by 138 meters to get 7,455.
Didn't start out to PB but felt pretty good so decided to have a crack.

Knocked 15 seconds off of 2,000 meters to 7:49 on Monday evening.

Re: British Army

Served in a T.A regiment 87 to 93 a good chunk of that time as a Sustained Fire platoon. Spent time on Ascension Island.
But mostly infantry stuff on Salisbury Plain. Think I could navigate that place in the dark without map and compass as spent so much time there.
