New Men's Hwt 60-69 6k World Record

For those interested, nailed my 1st individual World Record to-day (when confirmed by Concept 2), Men’s 60-69 Hwt 6k. :D Before BRIC, when I was taking on various British Records there were a few WR’s that looked ‘doable’ so bided my time until after BRIC to take them on. Now I’ve planned to take on...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Congrats again Rod, serious run of form you're in, keep it going but not too much mate. With the Worlds a while away, hopefully timing 'a peak' for them is on your radar now ;-) Hope everyone had a good Christmas, I haven't done anything meaning full since BRIC although I have managed to climb aboar...

Re: BRIC 2018

Just saw this thread. Congratulations all to outstanding performances. Are any of you going to the Euro Championships in Kopenhagen? Probably not for me, it's on my radar but realistically it'll be either the English in Manchester, or mores likely the Tribute Indoor Rowing Champs in St Austell as I...

Re: BRIC 2018

For BRIC I normally write the day up, to refer back to next year as a ‘blog’ entry. I’ve copied below and tells my day for anyone interested. With a 9:00 race the day started at 05:45. Didn’t get much sleep (normal on a race night :lol: ) as I tossed and turned most of the night going through the pa...

Pretty sure there's a picture around of the late Carole McNally erging with her broken leg/foot on a skateboard

Re: Has anyone worked out their typical daily calories burn?

Surprised nobody's mentioned these calculators on the Indoor Sports service website. I used them a few years back and did it for me. https://indoorsportservices.co.uk/training/bmr_calculator https://indoorsportservices.co.uk/training/bmr https://indoorsportservices.co.uk/training/calorie_calculator ...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Not quite sure how I've accomplished my present condition as I don't feel I've done much structured training since about March/April time but I'll take it :lol: Another big ‘lift’ mentally today, beat last November’s 6 x 500 R1 and with a slower stroke rate, well happy and happy there’s not too many...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Good to see you back TPK Rod, nice of you to comment on Henry, yes he’s coming along but not really getting enough game time for either of us :wink: Took a couple of unplanned days rest over the week-end, wasn’t planned but felt like my body needed a break. Paid dividends on Monday’s 4x750R3 so was ...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Congrats on the 1k BR Rod, working through all the BR’s nicely. Any WR’s in your sights, I’m sure some must be on the radar? Mike, glad you owned up :lol: and ‘just sub 7’ is still sub 7 mate ;-) Nice to see you’re still around Majorie IRL today, did have ‘something special’ to try for this to-day b...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Rod, I’m with the diamonds because they asked me, always ready to help out whoever needs it but no worries, cut me and I bleed ‘Sub 7’. :D Nice mile btw and yes I did notice I was top of the pile in the IRL although I don’t understand the Handicapping system. Gives Tiny Nash something to chase after...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

1609m for the Indoor rowers league done to-day. I had illusions of grandeur in trying to repeat my pacings that I did for the 4 minutes last month but wasn’t to be, came back down to earth but not with a big bump. Warmed up with a 5k fletcher starting at 205w then got to it. Pleased to get it done a...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Cheers for the congrats guys, yeah gradually working through them as it gives me a focus on the way to BRIC18. Makes me do some hard yards :lol: CTC today for me. Looked at the usual suspects and picked a target of 330w for the 1st two intervals. Warmed up with the usual sub 7 2k then overdid it on ...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Well I’m never one to break a sequence so here’s another British Record Mike. :D 60 minutes Mens Hwt 60-69 age group, I wanted to do something ‘hard and long’ today so took a peak at the 60 min BR and saw Nick Rockliff has set it at 16025m which is around 248w and figured that should be doable, so d...
