and so it begins .. again

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

Still here, still trying - today I tried hardererrrr

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

There has been some training.. mainly 60r20

and over the last two days I dropped the HRR to 70% which is showing improvement on overall figures - slowly slowly catchy monkey

Irish Indoor Rowing Championship 2018

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.

60r20 80% HRR - rest for 72 hours.. not likely

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.
