For those interested, nailed my 1st individual World Record to-day (when confirmed by Concept 2), Men’s 60-69 Hwt 6k. :D

Before BRIC, when I was taking on various British Records there were a few WR’s that looked ‘doable’ so bided my time until after BRIC to take them on. Now I’ve planned to take on one a week for the next 4 weeks, each as a hard AT type session in a short programme leading up to a 2k race in Feb. Pretty sure that race will be in St Austell for a crack at the 2k BR.

First up was the 6k (which for some reason I thought was for the sub 7 ITC as well, only to find it’s 10k this month doh :roll: ), next week will be a 10k, the following week 30 minutes and finally the 5k. Graded them with my perception of ‘easiest’ to ‘hardest’ although each are hard as you’d expect.

So, 6k pace was pretty easy to fathom out following a hard 5k (17:09.8) I’d done last week for the IRL. Out hard for the 1st k then sit on 310w and push the last 1000m to bring it home. And so did pretty much that. No real dramas as I was ahead of the game from the off which helped the mental battle.

Nice feeling to be top of the pile in something. :D

Scores on the doors

Previous 6k WR = 20:40.4
Previous 6k BR = 21:09.3

6000m – 28 – 1:42.8 – 322 – 20:33.8 - New WR (to be confirmed)

1k Splits
1:40.3 – 30 – 346
1:44.0 – 28 – 311
1:44.1 – 28 – 310
1:44.1 – 27 – 310
1:44.0 – 28 – 311
1:40.2 – 30 – 347
Huge congratulations!!
That's a really big improvement in a WR!

David

Good to see you still erg fit :D

Very well done on the 6K and good luck with all the rest.

First time on the erg for over two months today, less said about that the better :lol:
Cheers Nick, I think it was one of your BR's I nicked before Xmas so you can't be in too bad a shape :wink:
It must have been about a year ago when I did those two and were a bit soft anyway :wink:
