Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

I did get to Hamburg and back - but hardly the best rested. Set out Thursday 2:30pm and returned back from Birmingham Airport having gone nowhere by midnight, (but with a ticket to Dusseldorf for Friday lunchtime). :( No guarantee on taxis due to the weather Friday so had to get to the airport the h...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

I should have been in Hamburg yesterday but the snow cocked up that plan. Fingers crossed for another attempt to get off the ground today. With race being at 7:30am Sat this isnt good news even if I end up taking the train from Dusseldorf. Plan B will be to ergo the marathon at the local gym on Sund...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Rod - I will take a hint and email you with this result for the newsletter. Congratulations to all you medal winners who bust a gut in the USA last weekend. Well done indeed. Hopefully I will be able to spend more time online doing my own stuff again now. So should be making more frequent appearanc...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Starnberg 30 mins: Leading up to the race in training I had hit 6953m which is 2:09.4 pace and only 1m less than in 2014 race. Looked like preperation was going well, (although really geared towards Hamburg ergomarathon 3 March). :) Didnt have any problems with the journey, (contrary to opinion tha...

Re: Starnberg, German long distance championships

H20 - I was at Starnberg for the first time in 4 years and noticed several people HD. Also some people looked like they were about to pass out. For me the air was warmer than I would have liked but the door by the stage was open by my race at 14:40. Like you I would have been wary about starting a ...

Re: Starnberg, German long distance championships

H20 and Dean - I am going to Starnberg. Just got to make lightweight to be in with a shout of winning. Weather looking poor, so sightseeing might be limited.

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Rod - wow, another improved BR for 6k. Congratulations, and best wishes to take this under 22 minutes. Brilliant 1 hour result too. Dean - ending a session early when you feel weak is sometimes the only thing you can do, (happened to me on HM training just before Christmas when I had been strugglin...

B) Dean – great work on the HR controlled training, although your graph shows a worrying 0 heart beats at the end of the 4 minute rests. :o Me - 1200...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Weds - C2CTC, was going to stick at 2:06 all the way but realised that I could add a bit to the 250m and bring it down to 2:05.1 ave with flying starts. Fri - 10 x 1k r2, with 4 pressups in each 2 mins. 2:11.7 pace which is effort but not maximal. Sun - 32195m in 2:36.23.3 or 2:25.7, (kinda burnt o...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Rod - What unfortunate circumstances for your HM lightweight PB attempt. Great work on your training for 1 hour at 20spm and 2:00 pace. Thanks for the newsletter relaunch, which will no doubt have a few mentions of Carol and yourself going for Gold. Marjorie – glad you had a great time rowing 6k in...
