George:

Let's stay in touch. I'm sure I'm capable of going a "little" faster. I think you are capable of going more than a "little" faster, but I'm not inside your head. I've tried to stay on the Wolverine Plan from Mike Caviston. So I guess I'm a "slave" to my training plan.

One thing that always gives me hope, however, is something from Mike. He's training to lose less speed than he would if he didn't train hard. I'm still enough of a newbie (at 56) to still be training to go faster. I am training for one goal. I WILL be sub 7:00 at some time. My original goal was for next year. I have now reset to sub 7:10 for next year and sub 7:00 for the 2008. It feels good to have a goal that extends through 2008.

Thanks for the feedback.

Hi Jeff, I have no doubt that you can and will go faster and appreciate that the challenges ahead are all a lot easier when we share the load.

I started erging the beginning of 2004 and by years end had a 6:29.* 2k to my credit, and I dont mind admitting that I have gone backwards since then for a variety of reason to the place where you find me now. However and it is a big however I have a goal of 6:20 when I turn 50 - no point in taking little bites.

There are a few on this board who have goals both little and large so it makes it easier if we are all paddling together :D

George

ps Our long term goals are both for the season of 2008 so bring it on :)

Tonights session was in part determined by the fact that I probably would not get to row tomorrow as I have the day taken up with following my daughters school and club sports, so pushed it along:

60min / 15904 / 1:53.1 / 23spm

1:55.2 / 22spm
1:54.4 / 23spm
1:52.6 / 23spm
1:52.4 / 23spm
1:51.3 / 24spm

A nice effort for me in my progress and was an improvement of 235m. The last 3 splits (36min) were rowed Fartlek with periods where I upped the pace for maybe 60 or 90secs then backed off a little. Ironically the last 36min were below my 10k pace :D , guess I might have to do something about that now :!:

Enjoyed my beer with dinner as a result :)

Getting better, but would have liked sub 2:00. I think in my condition now I could get within 10sec of my PB 6k (22:52).
PB's:
500: 1:39
2k: 6:43.3

Usual 9k in about an hour with lots of stops, roughly every 5 min. Water dead flat, no wind.

But someone had laid out a 1k course with buoys at 250m and couldn't resist:
Buoys hit: 1 of 5
Strokes 100 exactly
Pauses: 1 about 10s, thought I was going to die at 750
Time to 1k 4:42.
Finished at 28; most of the rest at 21 I guess, couldn't see the strokemaster very well.

I hope no one gets the idea of buoying a 2k course anywhere near me.

Today I did another HM. I dont know for the life of me why as I hate such long rows. With 11k to go I had REALLY had enough, not physically as my HR showed that, but mentally as I knew I was only half way - so did some one handed rows and a quick drink and decided to get it down to 10k to go. (did not want to bail out). Got to 10k and mixed the pace up a bit which got me thru to 6k where for 1/2 a stroke I put the handle down as I had had enough .... picked it up again and pushed thru to the end and some satisfaction.

21097m / 1:21:58.4 / 1:56.5 / 21spm / avgHR139 (75%)

1:58.4 / 21
1:57.5 / 21
1:56.7 / 21
1:56.9 / 21 :(
1:52.8 / 23 :)

This was an inprovement of about 1 min 20secs on my last effort.
