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

Many thanks mate!

And another PB last night! 10k in 41m 41s!

It's funny to me that every time I actually try to hit a PB 10k, I start out too aggressively and don't manage to finish the 10k, but the times I do set a PB are when I'm kind of not aiming to.

My return to fitness with Concept 2

Just wanted to share my personal journey. In my younger days (early 40s now), I used to row as a cooldown from running. I had a pretty major skiing accident last February which resulted in a fractured tibia plateau. Two surgeries and months of being unable to walk later I was told by my surgeon not ...
