@Tom- really impressive 30'. Trying to get towards 8k myself. You should crush your 2k goal now your aerobic is so strong.

Thanks fellas.

@ Tom, maybe 8500m in 30 mins but sub 36 mins for 10k will be really pushing it I think. Having said that my fitness is far better than it ever has been so it might be possible.

I might try them this year, because I need to include some intense sessions now that I'm going further at weekends.

@Rob - thanks! I doubt you're far off 8k yourself, based on your PBs.

@Stu - I'd have though a 36 minute 10k would be easier than 8500m in 30 mins. It's an extra six minutes but at 1:48 splits vs. 1:45.8. To be fair though, my knowledge of longer distances pales compared to yours.

@Mike - thanks!

@ Tom, it's more of a mental block for me admitting that sub 36 mins is possible. I have done so many 10km sessions over the years that it's almost ingrained in my head that sub 36 isn't going to happen.

You're right it probably will be easier than a 8.5km 30 mins session. I probably need to exorcise that particular demon soon as it's possibly achievable and will have far reaching consequences for my confidence

Nice going Glenn. 2 secs is a great improvement over 1k

Not sure if I should post it here or attempt to revive the sprint thread...oh well...

Decided to give the one minute sprint a ride last night and managed 365 meters at r42. It was my second attempt besting my previous 357 from a couple of weeks ago. Conditioning was definitely a factor...was pacing high 380's low 390's in the first 20 seconds and struggled to hang on in the last 20 seconds.

Warmed up by doing a fairly easy 10 x 1:00 r26 on 1:00 rest averaging 288m each.

Great effort.

I can't speak for T_M, but when I do shorter distance TTs I don't use a full stroke. For 500m I row at around 3/4 slide and for 100m I probably row around half slide. This allows me to up my rate (36 for 500m and 48 for 100m) and power output a lot. Of course, over longer distances this isn't maintainable (even over 500m I start to lag after about the 1 minute mark).

Yeah that makes sense. I always use a full stroke which is something I need to change for the shorter distances.

Depends on what you're training for. I try not to shorten my stroke during an interval session like 8x500m since I'm doing that to train for 2000m where I'd row full strokes. Even for 1000m I probably wouldn't shorten my stroke much, if at all. It's noticeably how much more fatiguing it is even in something like a 500m test.

Sound. I think it will be a bit of trail and error for me in the new year to have a go at my seven years old 2k PB.

I think it's probably my leg drive that needs more work as I always had issues with a displaced pelvis(sounds a lot worse than it is) from leg training that I have recently realised (circa 12 months) was due to a very tight right hip flexor and now that I have loosened that up I don't need the trip to the chiro every 3 months anymore so I can use my legs more without fear of consequences...well, without as much fear anyway
