You are right about the sig. (edit: it had my older 7:12.x time) that time is from July or August. I did 7.04 little over a week ago as a test for yesterday’s time trial.
Originally my plan was to go to FIRC (Finnish IRC). The level of competition in past years has not been too high and sub 7:00 would have put me about last but not last by ridiculous margin. As my training failed to be very consistent in the autumn I decided to skip the FIRC which was last weekend (The last rower in 40-49 HW clocked 7:11 btw.) and instead scheduled my own TT.

Now I have a year to get in 6:50 range where this year 4-5 rowers battled within seconds from each other.

Total: 6.58.9 @ 1:44.7, 305W, R31

Today was a good day!

Had prepared myself mentally for a PR all day, so couldn’t let myself down :) Had to slide into 1:52-53s between 20-23 min, though, to avoid total meltdown, but finished strong!

Previous best was 8352 almost two years ago.

Congrats on the PB, Remi.
Turning that corner 12:00 - 8:00 to go, that’s the hurt zone for the 30 when you’re on the edge.
Well done!

It’s been almost an hour and I am freezing and feel sick still. Quite succesfull max effort. Felt and feel like crap. Didn’t have much sprint in me. Last 4 pulls started to fade.
Was able to keep 30-31 rate.

Very happy as 7 min is a big deal for unfit daddy-bod like me.
Great effort Kerosene

Fantastic effort Remi. This gives me something to aim at! No idea if I could do it or not though, but it'll be fun finding out

@ Remi - great work and Congrats! I'm always a few days late on these! Good to see you again, that's an awesome time!

@ Kerosene - that's fantastic on your 2K! Sub 7 is quite a milestone! Congrats on that! To be honest, I knew it was a question of when, not if, for you!

Thanks Lindsay, Ed, Henry, Jack!
It’s been interesting, returning to some level of form after a couple of health issues have been more or less brought under control.
Plenty of low rate meters, 30 r20 at UT2-1. Occasional harder work, a few 11:00 x 4 sessions.
Slow climb back. Keeping at it. Great to see the hard work and progress here - good motivation.
