@otw - Thanks - yes. I did one last week. However, I find, the longer the piece, the more room for micro adjustments that lead to a lower piece.

@danger - Thank you.

New 10K PB: 39:29.4 (1:58.4 pace)
20 sec improvement over the old PB which was not full effort though.
Did it at work place gym and didn’t get the details.
Held 1:58 average till 8K mark but had to back of a bit to 1:59s and 2:00s. Was able to pick up a little on last 1000 and with only few hundred left squeezed it under 39:30. Very happy that I am making progress after so-so autumn.

@kerosene - Awesome. Being under 2:00/500 is an awesome feeling.

Well done,

Well done David, that's a stellar performance. And, while that .2 will provide motivation, don't short yourself on celebrating this accomplishment. One thing I've learned from decades of competitive sport, celebrate each victory to its fullest. I've shorted myself too many times, already thinking about my next goal before my current best performance is even cold. Oh, to have back all those PR moments to savior!

Congratulations! That's some really strong rowing!

Well done David. That's a great effort. I really like what Mark said above and I totally echo his comment

Brilliant David. If you think about it that .2 is only 1/20th of a split, which was probably caused by the race start. That is literally the difference going a split lower in the last 100m would make. It would have been nice to go sub 6:50 but you're basically there and with the right pacing I have no doubt that you will get to 6:45.
Well done!

Tried a 2k today.
Happy with it. Old PB was 7:12.9 or something.

New 7:04.2 / 1:46.0 pace. Rate 29.
DF was at 114 despite me last week talking about 120 feeling better.

It went really well. Almost too well.
Splits:
1:46.3
1:47.2
1:46.8
1:43.9

Was not well rested or tapered. Didn’t feel like death. Acid pain really hit only after and definitely could have ramped up a bit more/earlier. Lungs for sure hurt more than legs.

Plan is to try in 1 1/2 weeks ‘for real’. Might get second or two off if it’s a good day but 7:00 is probably too far.

Happy regardless.

Congrats Kerosene, that's a great effort. But how can it have gone "too well"??
