had a quiet couple of days... was going to do the summer solstice but got up wednesday with an IBS episode so ended up taking the day off work. i was going to take thursday off to do the challenge but couldnt take 2 days off. so i was all set to do the whole thing on thursday night. got home from work and bam... another IBS episode so that was the challenge done for..... went to work today anticipating doing a session tonight and was doing some tidy up in our workshop and while moving some UPS batteries around i twisted in the wrong manner and now my back is shot..... so will take a few more days off the erg to let it settle.
thats 3 things wrong so hopefully thats all.

Very droll.......I would think National records are pretty good things to get in most peoples eyes. I've currently got 6 but really do want that HM one so am training hard for it. I've got 2 world relay records though! :lol:

As for narrowing it down to the household......well I've got no chance...my wife is the current 55-59 Lwt world champion. It's her 3rd win and I've lost count of her British and world records! She's in a new age group in September so there will then be a whole shedload more.....she's definitely number one in our humble dwelling....not me! :lol:

You don't seem to think much of my effort (and it was a very big effort believe me!) but I am happy to congratulate you on being top in your house... you've certainly gone one better than me! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

What difference do other folk have between the free pace and 20spm?
Never tried maximal 30R20 but pretty sure the difference b/w for me would be around 5s/500m.
Yeah, it's probably circa 5s/500m for me for a 30r20 and a free rated 30mins

Yesterday another 72'/1374-session, today flat-rated &-paced 90 minutes. Legs felt rather heavy yesterday, had to push hard on early stages of the session to meet the pace goal for given stroke rates, especially SPM18/2:06 was tough. Unexpectedly today's long session went much better.

I've continued do to the Pete Plan sessions as much as possible and am enjoying them. Today I tried the pyramid for the first time and enjoyed it, though had a bit much left in tank at end because in the final 250m I think I was pulling the lowest split I'd ever seen on the PM (about 1:31).

Ooff, that last 250m rep is very good considering how hard you pulled on the other reps too

Sunday mid-day. It was only 95 degrees F outside. :shock:
Went for a 14 mile mountain bike ride. My wife's competitive nature kicked in with me riding next her. At our break spot, after climbing three hills and topping out, she said "we did that 1:30 faster than usual". :)
Rowing is definitely helping my stamina on the bike.

Started Pete Plan again today (never finished it last year) as I pressed pause while I studied for the CFA Exam. Now that the exam is over (Saturday), it's time to get rid of the extra weight. Sheesh, getting old stinks.

I'm 49M, 5'8", 197.6 as of this morning. Not in great shape, hate being winded during sex and can't stand having issues lacing up my shoes because this friggin belly that gets in my way. Anyway, first post here.

Honestly, I'm a slowpoke but that's okay. It will get better.

Yesterday my power hike with 1300m of vertical height gain. Blitzed it in 1h 25min. I need 1:20 to hit 1000m/hr, which is a decent climbing rate for the vertical kilometer races, for my age :roll: .

Today, really tried to do an easy 10k. I ended up at 44:38 @2:14, df 110, 24spm, which is only 15s off my PB. Going slowly has never been my strong point.

That's impressive! Only 15s off PB when you were doing an easy piece the day after a strenuous hike!?!?! I moved up from sea level to 4k feet for the summer (and light hiking) and still haven't adjusted after 3 weeks.
