err... I seemed to have had a rash moment this evening and signed up for the 2k just before the deadline for entries closed :shock: B)

So now have 12 days to do some sharpening... trouble is the pencil is blunt and has previously been dropped so breaks all the time :lol:

If was a sort of 'taking part' conversation with my son but he declined, so it's just me. :roll:
Excellent, good luck Dino 👊

I found my first comp both painful but enjoyable.

This is very exciting. I think you'll beat me to 7:15 then. Good luck.

Going to need a lot of it!
Was sent the list of entries today. There are 78 entrants in the 50-54 M HWT Masters category - browsing through recent PBs an awful lot are way below 7.
Max - I'll be happy to get under 7:20 again. I'll be propping up the category as it is, so don't want to push for something and risk a complete melt down! Haven't exactly left myself much time to switch from 60 min comfy rows to 2k all out! 7:15 would be nice though... :D

I would definitely suggest racing against yourself only...if you start watching what position you are you might blow as you say. 7:15 is a great target 👍

As Alex says, get up early and loosen up. Adrenaline will soon change your view of early mornings :wink:

Good luck mate

If anyone is looking for race prep tips there is a video on YouTube by Matthew Tarrant which is quite good.

I'm overthinking it already 🙄...raced several times during my sleep last night 🙄😁...none if them were pretty 😂

Tripped up the stairs yesterday and bent a finger back at joint 1 :x :? ......hoping it won't impact me tomorrow but it's a lovely shade of blue at the moment :( .

08:00 - Breakfast - poached eggs on toast
10:00 - Walk the dog
11:00 - Banana, sweets, snack
11:30 - Check erg/computer setup
12:30 - Change into race kit
12:55 - Warmup
13:10 - Enter race lobby
13:45 - Go Go Go
13:55 - Pick myself up off the floor

Double Ouch! :o hopefully will be OK as there isn't much grip force required on the erg.
I must work backwards and sort out a schedule too! although after watching Matt Tarrants recommendations in the video I wont be getting up 4 hours before i.e. at 0530! :lol:

Good luck to all racing over the weekend.

Damn, bad luck! As it's only one finger it will hopefully not slow you down, good luck for tomorrow! :)

And good luck Dino, Stu and all other racers here!
