Single scull times and drills?

Hi, I'm writing this post because I always wondered what are yours 2k time on the single scull?, I'm usually around 8:00 (take or leave 20 sec depending on the lake) and by seeing different threads and videos on the web I had the impression that the sculling level in America is not so high so first ...

Re: Looking to drop erg time from 7:35 to sub 7:00.

And, However If you really raise the quality of your workouts and the the volume you will probably be sub 7 in 6 months so know your goal(s) and any action in your daily life should really be after asking yourself If that would make you faster.

Re: Just wanted to know my possible 2k time

Thanks everybody for the responses, I asked about the 2k because It was done a few months ago and in a very hot room where everybody did slower or fainted at the halfway mark. The most recent piece I've done is a 10 k holding 1:54.6 at 23 spm(for what It's worth). However I followed this forum a lot...

Just wanted to know my possible 2k time

So I didn't tested recently but my last 2k was a 6:57.3 a few months ago. The last all out tests (although they were meant to be workouts) are a 6x5:00/3:00 rest at 1:47.5 at 27 spm and a 500 m time trial at 1:30.1( rowed at 38 spm just to make correlations with 2k so probably could have gone faster...
