The pace and distance are there to see if you want. ...

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

1min-PB by 3 meters Was a bit to conservative at the beginning, a few more meters are possible. As my 2nd son was born on 12. Feb I had no time or motivation to train last week, but at least I was pretty rested yesterday :-) Next weeks/months will be less easy to hold my training volume and intensi...

It's not essential but it does have its uses. I use a Wahoo Tickr as it's relatively cheap and reliable me...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Not going to win many contests here but for me after rowing nearly a week this a culmination of my efforts. 2k row in 8.58.1 - I so desperately wanted to get under 9 minutes and achieved it :D Logged and registered on concept2 website as well, got a total metres rowed of 38,346 metres.
