Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Susan, Mike . Sorry to hear about your injuries: know how you feel as I'm still getting some gyp intermittently from my skiing leg injury. Strangely it's worse when I dance than when I row. Susan. good result there in Helsinki despite the travel issues and the heat. No shame in getting a gold medal...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Update from me. At the moment I'm pretty crocked. Went skiing two weeks ago in Saalbach. New skis, sunny but with plenty of snow. Great first two hours, was 'over the hill' towards Leogang and had a bad fall, knee seeming to do some strange things, both skis come off. Checked out and nothing broken....

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Hi y'all, Some serious long distance stuff from Susan and Rod and seemingly more to come :!: . Not one to be so heavy on such intense workouts - so far my max this season is 37,000 in a week (obviously will do more if I ever do that FM for the Nonathlon). Had two more goes at the BRVIS 1000m, having...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

And yes I think you need to be re-introduced to the concept of a taper before a race Marjorie. Doing a full competitively paced erg session the day before as well as over 20 miles on a bike isn't my idea of a taper! No wonder the 4th 500 came hard. Still a win though!! Hi Mike - my bike ride was 2 ...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Susan , well done on your 2k SB at St Austell. My Teign Scullers crew mate Brain Cort (82) was also there and got a Silver in the 70+ category with a 8:20.7. Mike , good to see you were also able to do some 2k, even if you would have liked to go faster, 7:02.1 is not a time to be ashamed off coming...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Hi Mike, glad you enjoyed the live coverage. I didn't do a very good time, which may be why I never featured in the commentary, only managing 8:01.3. Would have been sub 8, but lost it in the last 500m when no real drive in the legs and only did 2:01.3 when it should have been 1:57. Don't know wheth...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Susan , best wishes for an easy journey and a good result at St Austell. I'm now sitting by the departure gate at Heathrow, having come up to London yesterday afternoon. I did knock off another attempt at the CTC yesterday morning, unfortunately at 20 spm not 19 spm as I was supposed too. The good ...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Today had another go at the 6x500R2 (I'm nowhere near as dedicated as Rod, who does 10 reps.). Averaged 1:55.0 pace before the Welsh. Averaged 1:56.5 pace before BRIC - where having held 1:54.8 pace for the first three reps I then blew up on the 4th. This time averaged 1:55.5 with reps: 1:55.9, 1:5...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Hi Mike , sorry to hear about your illness. Must be very frustrating. You have my complete absolution for consequently being a bit sub-par on the rowing. Rod : yes, I am off to Long Beach too: travelling up to London on Wednesday afternoon then flying to LAX on Thursday. Unfortunately I don't seem t...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

I've had quite a relaxing week, nevertheless I've successfully completed two 2k races. Last Saturday was in Manchester for the English IRC at the Velodrome. My 2k race was at 10:50, when it was still quite cold. My main problems was the lack of warm-up machines. Ended up grabbing one a bit too early...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Will be travelling to Manchester tomorrow so today was my last row before EIRC. Today took a break from the sprinty stuff with a 6000m. Obtained a season's best with 25:02.6 (2:05.2 pace), an improvement of 10.6 seconds on my previous SB from November. I would have liked to have gone under 25 minute...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Rod , well done on yet another improved time for the 8x500R3:30. I expect that hurt. As to me, after Tuesday's disappointing 6X500R2 I had a look back at what I was doing just before BRIC - a 6x500R2 that I stopped after 3 reps and a 1000m that I lost race pace 300m in and then limped home just ins...
