Took another 2 day rest and rowed a new 2k just now and did it in 9:11.0. Pretty darn happy with that result! 12.7 secs faster than any previous run. And I didn't even push it!

Regards, Edwin.

Congrats on the PB.

You're starting to realize the quick gains in aerobic fitness already, compared to not being active. That's some pretty motivating progress Ed. How does your rowing schedule tend to be setup these days now?

Basically, to make sure I give my elbow time to heal, I do one training, then take 2 days of rest. I'll do a 5k tomorrow with 2:45 to 2:50 split times.

As long as I don't go flat out, the elbow is ok. Rowed a faster 2k again this morning. Did it in 8:52.9. Another 17.1 secs faster than before!

Just back from a week of business travel to the USA. Couldn't fid time nor place to train. Just picked up training and did a 2k. Slow rate, 22 spm, pretty forceful on the power. 9:00.2. Not bad. I plan to do a few 5k's coming weeks ...

So I have a question. Hope any of you can help out.

I want my screen to give me 500m splits AND give a prediction on my 2k or 5k end time.

But where do I find this?

Regards, Edwin.

Found it! I also did another fast 2k and brought my PR to 8:38.2. That's 14.7 seconds faster than what I did 2 weeks ago.

early gains can be very satisfying can't they?

Looking good, Edwin! Harden up the low rate work and a couple more 15-20” leaps on 2k pace will happen. The honeymoon rises only once so enjoy it. After, the hard work remains hard and rate of improvement slows.
