Re: 2019 Crash-Bs -- New 60+ MHW 2k WR

Thanks Lindsay Hope your fit and well 2 k well I wont be going for any of those :D thanks - I am doing pretty well and fitness is good. Not quite comfortable with the slowing down though. Racing on Saturday in New Zealand so another chance to test the limits. Are you going to have a go at the 1:22....

Well that gives me time to get there on the day :D
Thanks Lindsay
best of luck Steve - hope there are some big guys to give you a push along.
Try to get there in time for the opens - it is quite a big deal and gives you a chance to get your head into the right space as well.

Hi Anyone know roughly what time of day the 60 500m will take place?
Thanks Steve
They do all the 2ks first - juniors and Masters in the morning then the Opens so likely to be around 2:30 or a bit later but don't take that as gospel

I'm certainly no speedster, but I'm not really sure how it is even possible to row at that pace.
Mitchell you are right it is very hard to do - there are a number of very slow ergers in our gym - the slowest I have seen is 20' @7:00 pace sr18 but there are others <5:00 pace as well.

Re: Heart rate vs Power
