Think I could maybe go slightly further with better pacing. Will try again next week.
That's a nice 30 minutes Robin. Bound to get better whilst you bathe in the early improvement but impressive indeed

Managed to get a new PB for the challenge (and, more impressively, successfully post it on the ctc site).

Good bit left, maybe rate a bit higher from the off. Certainly more to come!

Proper "full-on" attempt today at the 30 min (and incidentally CTC) since i restarted rowing at the end of September. Happy to have kept 24 SPM throughout and breaking the 7k barrier at 7,111m which was the main goal. Had set up the pace boat at 2:08:5 for that purpose but started too fast in the first five minutes and paid the price down the line. Only 256m away from my old PB, i'll take that for now... maybe some room to have another proper go before the year is out.

I did consider registering at the EIRC in February as a motivational target but as I have hardly done any proper sprint/ interval work yet, I thought best and wiser not to. Over 2 months on after resuming, my back is still holding ok (knock on wood) and I am slowly reaping continuous benefits health-wise. I believe going into a sprinting mindset that early on for the next 8 weeks could be detrimental at this stage. So, patience for now and more slow long distance up to HM for me in the 2:15 - 2:25 region to continue build up fitness... The motivation of chasing up the affiliation's ranks and a 200K target for the holiday challenge is motivation enough already :mrgreen:

Good luck to David and Lindsay at the BRIC tomorrow with the other 1800 competitors. Enjoy !! :mrgreen:

Solid 30’ effort, Olivier; getting close to your previous best number. Look ahead to the European or British next yr. Plenty of time until then for a periodized training scheme which will serve your back first and your competitive ambition later.

Dave and Lindsay: Y’all gwine suffer like dawgs! Make it skippy so ya don’t suffer for long. :wink:
