Team Oarsome thread for when the UK forum goes bang!

Today I had a rest day but I did start my brand new Powerbreathe sports performance plus.
I am really hoping to get my fitness back sooner rather than later.


How is everybody today?

For my return to erging, I chose the CTC. This may have been unwise. I didn't expect to be fast, but I thought I would do a little better than this:

1' @ 1:41.0 r32, 1:20 rest
2' @ 1:47.9 r27, 1:40 rest
3' @ 1:51.3 r26, 2:00 rest
1' @ 1:46.7 r29, 2:00 rest
2' @ 1:52.3 r26, 2:00 rest
3' @ 1:52.7 r25
total: 3276 m @ 1:49.8 r27

I felt fine after the first 1' interval, but when I began the 2', my arms felt leaden. I had nothing left. I soldiered on and finished the piece anyway. I think I went out too hard in the first interval.

Second attempt, powered by Starburst, with more sensible pacing this time:

1' @ 1:49.8 r27, 1:20 rest
2' @ 1:47.7 r26, 1:40 rest
3' @ 1:48.8 r25, 2:00 rest
1' @ 1:47.5 r27, 2:00 rest
2' @ 1:47.7 r27, 2:00 rest
3' @ 1:47.3 r27
total: 3333 m @ 1:48.0 r26

No longer can I support social media platforms that do not allow freedom of speech whether I agree with the speech or not. As a U.S. Marine I support the U.S. Constitution, with that being said, I am now using this forum and created a group page on gab.com for the Concept 2 Indoor Rowing Community.

January CTC completed!

100m 1:41.5r41
200m 1:44.2r40
300m 1:44.6r37
400m 1:46.2r34 (The middle section: 400, 500, 400
500m 1:46.8r33 was planned to stay somewhere
400m 1:46.5r33 between 1:46 to 1:47)
300m 1:43.8r39
200m 1:41.2r43
100m 1:36.0r50

Goal was to be sub 1:46.0, however, I was able to finish the last three reps at a better than anticipated pace.

Next plan of attack is the Half Marathon!

Another fantastic start to the CTC for TO. Four boats floating with three boats in the top ten. 😆

Did the TO challenge yesterday. I wanted to maintain a pace between 2:06 to 2:07. Felt great the whole way and pushed in at the end. Today was a day off to rest plus a long 12 hour day at work helped to make that decision to as well.

A good base building work out. Nice easy start with a good push at the end.
