Just got my bike erg last week. Not following a training plan at the moment, just doing the WODs that are posted and some sub-threshold stuff.

Ranked workouts so far:
500m TT: 39.3
200M TT: 14.7
30MIN TT: 17,467m

Goals: a 14 or sub 14s 200m, sub 39s 500m.

Today was probably my best overall result, 250cal workout done in 9:52, 5941m, power 353w, drag 89, rpm 94.
Well done on those - although I guess you have previous training as those aren't just "get on a bike and get those results in a few weeks".
Yes, I have been racing on the track for a few seasons, but I was badly injured earlier in the season in a crash (broken scapula, concussion). Purchased the bike erg to replace my smart trainer and try something new.

So for some reason i did the 4k TT after an hour of z2. Ended up with a time of 06:22. Average power was 402, average power for the z2 block was 235. I think fresh I can definitely bring down the 4k time
