5k row PB.

17:39.2

1.4 seconds better than previous PB.

First PB since i started my thread, so glad to be back on track. Long way to go to october tho.

I think i have landed on good pacing for a 5k that works for me.

15 strokes hard.

Slow down a couple of seconds over base pace until hit base as average at about 700 to 800 metres.

Sustain that until 2k.

Drop average pace by 0.1 between 2 and 3k and them again between 3k and 4k.

Last 1k really steps up. With the last 300m at max sprint.

For today that looks like. (All 1000m splite)

1:46.6
1:46.6
1:46.4

Ah. Yeah. Probably should have provided context!

Aiming for the australian indoor rowing champs. Trying to get a 6:30 2k. Could be just enough for a podium in my age bracket. (30 to 39)

Current 2k pm was 6.45. Done back at the end of feb. Havent tested since then.

Some more details are in the thread below. Although i havent been keeping it very up to date.

New PB for 60min! +260m. Was aiming for @2:12 before I sat down, but going a bit faster felt fine, then I just carried on to the bitter end.

1:00:00.0 13,735m 2:11.0 156 835 25
10:00.0 2,286m 2:11.2 155 832 25

50:00.0 2,290m 2:11.0 156 835 25
60:00.0 2,309m 2:09.9 160 849 27

I wonder how long I can keep on improving as age competes with beginner's gains.

Great improvement and really consistent pacing!! I think the newbie gains will beat the age issue for quite some time - at least that's what I want to believe :D

Hobbit... this is a total co-incidence!... 60 mins new PB for me too - we were probably erging at the same time :D

Time Meters Pace Watts Cal/Hr S/M DF
60m 15,025m 01:59.8 204 1000 21 111

Select option below:
a) It's just a walk in the park Kazanski...
b) Judged to perfection
c) Every meter ground out and just about buried myself

.... it was c) :roll: :lol:

Just had to get it out of the way - slept so badly last night actually took the day off was feeling so lousy this morning... but after sitting around most of the morning I thought **** it, why not. Plan was 2:00 r20 to 40mins, then try to cling on. Had a quick drink at 40m then it was just minute by minute. That felt tougher than the FM. Heart was banging away in my chest from 30m. HD was never far from my mind but stubborness prevailed.

Time Meters Pace Watts Cal/Hr S/M

c) Every meter ground out and just about buried myself

.... it was c) :roll: :lol:

Just had to get it out of the way - slept so badly last night actually took the day off was feeling so lousy this morning... but after sitting around most of the morning I thought **** it, why not. Plan was 2:00 r20 to 40mins, then try to cling on. Had a quick drink at 40m then it was just minute by minute. That felt tougher than the FM. Heart was banging away in my chest from 30m. HD was never far from my mind but stubborness prevailed.
