Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Attempt at a 2k TT. 5k steady jog. I am bitterly disappointed with myself today. The coaches sprung a 2k test on me today and I was not expecting it in the slightest. I was feeling so so nervous and my heart rate felt through the roof! Started out at 1:48, seemed alright. But then my splits started ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

OTW sL. I wouldn't worry about the 500m, its a different skill set. I rate around 45rfor a 500m and 30-32r for a 2k. You'll need to practice going fast. Maybe start with 30s pieces. Get the muscle memory going. Your fitness is there. Thanks, sprinting is definitely my weakness and I try to avoid sh...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

10k SS at I think 2:06.7.
Kind of deflated with this as I tried an all out last 500 at r26 and only ended up with 1:49s, which is around my current 2k split. A little disappointing. Tool it up for last 100 anyway at R34 and got some 1:39s meh.
Definitely need to do some speed work over Christmas.

Re: Targets 2018

Best of luck to all of you in whatever targets you set for yourself, no matter how 'modest' you may perceive them to be; in reality PBs are very personal and can't, and shouldn't be, compared from person to person. If you totally empty the tanks you have my utmost respect Well said, I don't think m...

Re: Targets 2018

My (hopefully) conservative goals are: Sub 6:40 2000m, Sub 18 5000m, Sub 21:40 6000m, Row a good 8000m+ 30 minutes, Sub 38 10000m, Row a good half and full marathon, Set a decent 60 minutes PB (as yet no specific target as I haven't done enough fast ones to have an idea of pace). I'll be working on...

Targets 2018

I know that 2017 isn't over yet but I thought I'd start this thread a bit prematurely. I was wondering how you guys did on your targets for 2017 and what targets you are thinking of setting for 2018. It doesn't matter if you're looking for a new PB or just a new fitness goal just post it here: I did...

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

Good Day, Two year old 5k time fell today, but in honesty, I haven't been constantly rowing those two years. Realistically, about 7 months of the two years, but I beat it by about 20 seconds, so I will take it. 5k under 19 minutes for the first time at 18:51. Have a good night David Well done David...

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

@ Scott, those PBs just keep on dropping, well done mate. Good to hear that you properly emptied the tanks too. That sort of effort is great mental training too Thanks Stu! Just saw the projected finish in the last 30" and thought I wonder if I can get over 7700 so I absolutely smashed it out to ge...
