Thanks for the replies Stu, Henry, Martin - I'll aim for something like 7:15-7:20 next time I try this then and have 5 minute rest.
FWIW just had a look back to my brush with the PP in 2016 - my numbers were pretty close to yours - 1k @1:36, 2k @1:42 and 5k @1:50
Did 4x 2k/5'R @1:50.5 with the last slowest and went pretty hard at it. It will always vary depending on individual strengths/weaknesses of course.
I agree with Henry too - if you are erging for fun and fitness rather than performance then maybe really no need to go the limit?

"if you are erging for fun and fitness rather than performance then maybe really no need to go the limit" - this is the important bit! I think I need to decide really. I like to push myself though so might see if I can do next one 10 seconds per 2k faster at least.

There is something satisfying about a 100% effort (for some of us) and in the long run there is a real benefit for fitness...even if not racing
I reckon 7:20 will be at the limit but go for it of course

Look at Andrew, pulled 6.19 last year, as a 50 plus, but after that took it “easy”, now he is ramping up again. So not needed to hard 12 months a year, but if you do, really go for it.

Andrew is, imo, more talented then he thinks though.

30r20 is a tough one when done at that pace! That's a strong effort

Got my repairs to my erg finished yesterday, new foot plates and new rail. I haven't been on another erg for about 5 years and hadn't realised how bad mine had become. The lock mechanism was nearly touching the floor :roll: now it's back where it should be.

Did a 10k this evening and realise it's going to take a while for me to get used to the new position. Think I must have been wasting quite a bit of power lifting me upwards over the course of a stroke.

Good session Max. With confidence you will be able to go a bit faster. I'd start at 2:10, and neg split from then on, if you managed a sprint
Arrggh. Thought I'd give this a go, but started just a little too quick (the idea of 14km was enticing). I suffered crises of confidence regularly from about 36mins in. Got through all of them until 7 mins to go, and it just seemed too long. HD'd for about 40" and then managed to get going again.

time distance 500m s/m
12.00 2781m 2.09.4 22
24.00 2793m 2.08.8 22
36.00 2786m 2.09.2 22
48.00 2780m 2.09.4 23
60.00 2663m 2.15.1 22

13804m total (at 2.10.1).

Still a PB (although strictly, I think this may be a PB for the uncommon event of 59'20") and I know that physically I can do it. Just need to quiet the inner voice of doom.

First of all well done. I always get a wobble about 40-45 mins in if I'm pushing it so it's all about distraction when that happens. Imagine your wife, family and friends all stoo behind you shouting at you to keep going.

Now you have done it you will be a bit better next time as you know you can do it. Try laughing and smiling too. It sends different messages to your brain about how hard it feels.

Been enjoying the decent weather lately by getting out on the MB. 7hrs on the coast yesterday!!! It was beautiful... i even treated myself to a gorgeous Haddock on my travels :D

It's also de-load week for my weight training. I have just started taking some (primal cure 5x muscle) tablet capsules. Hopefully these will help my performance and help with the muscle gains.

6k today @ 2:03.6 - r22 (df120) A hot workout in the temps we are seeing right now... felt good though :)
