Any tips on pacing this months CTC 1,2,3,2,1 / r2? My latest 8x500m / r3 was down to 1:55 so was going to start there.

I probably only have one shot at it next week so trying to pace it right first time and avoid giving too much (or too little) on the first couple of intervals.

Finally got a seat pad. Made it to 30k. Was painful, but I made it! If I can make the FM at an average of 2:20 I'd be beyond stoked. Aiming for the beginning part of the Holiday Challenge for my FM 🤞
Following your progress to the FM with interest and for inspiration. Go well!

I'd be interested to know this too. If it's 9 minutes with rest my complete guess would be around 2k pace?

Faster, start out at 2k min 2 seconds for the first 2.
The 3 min around 2k pace.
The 2 min close to max.
Last min, whatever is left.

I just wanted to introduce myself as I just joined the team after finding the cross-team challenge, doing it, and trying to figure out how to enter my score. I'm 43, but have been erging off and on since high school (not continuously) as my dad had an erg when I was growing up. I'm mainly using it as cross-training at the moment, but was looking for some competition to bring variety to my workouts.

Welcome David! Looks like you signed on to CTC, rowed the piece for a seat in FF#4 boat, home and dry. God luv a duck, self-reliance scores big points in my book! :D

Did a well paced 10k yesterday followed by a pseudo interval piece today. "Just row" turned into intervals of 500 to a 5k, setting handle down between intervals and starting from a static wheel. Happy with my pace. My hope was to make my FM pace feel "easier/slower". Maybe I'll do a long and slow tomorrow, a shorter but easy row Wednesday and then FM on Thursday to earn my Thanksgiving feast 🤣

Sounds good. Need to build and maintain glycogen saturation Wednesday.

Hello everyone!

So... The last time I logged into this forum was 2008 😂 when I was a 19yo lwt.. I was participating in the c2ctc challenges with you guys

Well.. I'm now a 33yo hwt 😂 is there still room for a little one?

I had health (mental) problems around 2008 that had me largely give up on everything and anything. But got back in a boat a couple of years later and pulled a 6:24 2k which I was very happy with, before having 3 kids and work, work

Sorry for the life story 😂 I've bought myself a model E hoping to get myself back in great condition and my goal is now to rebreak sub 7! I pulled a 7:58 last week and a 7:40 this week, so it's slowly slowly catchy monkey etc...
Welcome back.
Good luck with breaking 7 again.
