First - great job!!! A 2 second drop in the 500m is huge! Your time is really good and I am sure you can get a bit lower. I haven't done a 500m test for a while now might have to give it a go. You have the power and like you stated just need to improve some fitness to lower 1K and 2k times. I am still stronger in the 1K range but my 2K and higher have all improved a lot due to improving that aerobic base - something I am still training to keep getting better.MartinSH4321 wrote: ↑March 28th, 2019, 7:01 amThanks Henry!
My drag was 206. For 100m, 1min and 500m I always use max drag, for 1k/2k 140 and for 5k and longer 120 (constructive criticism always welcome ).
With 6:30 and 3:00 I would compete with Keith, which is far out of reach by now I fear . My aerobic capacity / fitness is still my weak link, but yeah, training does work for me atm, thanks to your and some other rowers helpful advises here!
As far as drag - Henry provided a good answer and I always listen to him. I increase mine a little for 500M/1K test but that's about it - I row all training and all test 2K and up at 130, go a little higher (150) for 500m/1K.
