Brilliant effort Marius. I always enjoy seeing a PB posted by you as I know it'll be amazing. I look forward to hearing about you breaking the 2000m record (do you have the 5000m record already?)

Thanks Tom!
I do not have the 5000m record. I’m tuned for 1k and 4min at the moment. Need to work on my fitness level a bit before 2,5 and 6k.
I’m actually thinking of trying to improve the 1k and 4min before moving on to longer distances. I have a nice pace plan for both that I would like to try. That would be 2:56.x for the 1k and 1306m for the 4min.

@DavidA - Yes it was woo hoo :lol:

1min pb. Beat the old pb from a month ago by 10m.
Big difference in the pace graph In the logbook as well. No fade at all today, kept pulling 1:20-1:21s from start to finish.
A month ago my last strokes where almost 1:30..

Congratulations Marius!
Looking forward to seeing your rowing-erg efforts (already excellent) and glad I'm not in your age group.

@ Marius, that's a very impressive increase in average pace in such a short time #powermuncher

You're still improving which must be a terrifying prospect for your competitors

Congrats, but less impressive :wink: Also shows your natural strenght, great endurance, the power guys attack this very differently, with a much faster lowpull.
Still very strong, and plenty of more records to come !

@Marius - given you're tuned for the the 1000m/4 minute distance I think that makes sense. I look forward to hearing about you beating your own records :D

@ Marius - You are one powerful man! Watching you and Henry and a few others on the SkiErg, I would love to get one also. I would be very pedestrian at that as well (just like the rower) but I do think it looks like such a great compliment to the rower.

Thanks again everyone :D Helps a lot for the motivation to keep on pushing my limits!
Henry - I knew it would not impress you much :lol: My low pull is 1:14 at the moment, but I’m working hard to get it lower.
I’m also thinking about entering the +100kg class again :D
Gammmmo - I’m best suited behind the camera :lol:

5k pb.. Wanted to check where I’m at on the 5k. I haven’t done much longer sessions on the skierg so was not looking forward to this. Had to restrict the rate a bit to be able to finish. Don’t remember anything from the last k, but it seems like it went pretty fast :lol:
I have a job to do to get the fitness up to wr level, but will wait with that until around September.

:wink:

This is more impressive :D and looking at that pacing certainly not 100% yet. Sub 17 will be not to difficult.
Your speed is good enough to break the 2/5k wr. But whatever you do, keep doing it, it works!
