Thank you Frag,
If it wasn't for fate I wouldn't even be here or have experienced being as fit as I now feel, I would have probably drifted on thinking my half life was real and couldn't be improved on.

I'm working up to my marathon, one of my training partners has already done his. I'm off all week so it could be any time 😂

I would like to complete all of the "ranked" distances except 100k and try to get as many of them over the 75th percentile as possible (obviously this will change a bit through the year as more times are put out there). As the season progresses, I may even mess around with the 100k...

FM completed today, eventually.

Full notes recorded on Strava but my main goal was simply to complete the distance.

Previous furthest distance was HM.

I didn't push enough to come close to "the wall", but I think a 30K practice run would have benefited me. The discomfort of the bare seat and the pressure on my fingers were distracting enough for me to have to get off the rower several times.

No real goal, I just aim for consistency, also during the summer months. (Easier to get in the cellar during the winter time).

About 1,5mio m for the whole season (RowErg and Skierg) would be okay for me.
Don’t have too much time with young kids, lot of work etc.
Used to XC bike a lot (mainly XCM - Marathons).

Started this year in February, and got an average of 90k m per month.

Best regards from Germany.

Hey, another rower from Germany 😄
Also started this year, so rookie Status as well ✊🏻

Absolutely right, consistency is key.
I want to hit some PBs and See how high I can get in the percentiles of the rankings, but primary goal is to stay active and get the body moving 👍🏻
