New job - new work gym - old (but good concept2) erg - older man - renew the mission
60r20 topping out at 80% HRR but a steady 75% HRR for the majority - slow and sweaty wins the race

Have been rowing for the past few weeks just nothing too impressive nor much time to post it - still not that impressive nor much time but wanted to get this posted today - hard morning as late up and after feeding the baby he got sick ... so only a half hour session available so without a warm up straight into a 30r20 and although pace wise I am a million miles from where I wan't to be in terms of resolve I'm on the money, onward and upwards

Huge thanks to my beautiful wife for looking after our kids (6 week old babies take a lot of looking after lol) yesterday which meant I could row in the Irish Indoor Rowing Championship. Since the babies arrival (Adam) coupled with a new job (45 min to a hour commute each way) training took a hit, four weeks off completely and only back for two weeks. Also increased in weight (not a bad thing for the 500m but the 2k felt like I was dragging an anchor..). Wasn't going to go until the last minute but off I set. Was fantastic to see old friends and meet new. Amazed by the struggles people go through yet keep smiling. Signed up for the 1k, 2k and 500m. Everyone of them a close race but managed to win the three. So a gold medal for each of the kids. Lilly said she would look after Louis's as he's up in heaven. Love to all and to all keep going.

up at 4am again - baby fed, me fed, dogs walked and fed, drive to gym - 60 min r20 "as I feel" which ended up around 80% HRR and TE of 5.0 lol for the pace it shows how much "fitness" has dropped - still it will come back reasonably quickly.
