20x1:30 30r r24

Not exactly according to plan.. (that being 1:40 pace) blew out after 15th rep


Ten days off one day on...

Well after ten days in the wilderness, ie off work at home lol no training, just didn't get the time or energy. I've started tracking my calories/food again yesterday and had a weigh in today (115.9kg).So after a full on day yesterday in work catching up, this morning I got back on the erg and was expecting bad numbers and wasn't disappointed. Irish Indoors is on 19th Jan.... 😂

November ctc

Last pop at this, bearing in mind that last week on Thursday and Friday by back had spasmed up I'm thankful to have been able to have another crack


First real signs of the engine stirring

Signs of improvement at last, normally, well recently, if I'd rowed the same HR piece one day after the other I'd take a hit on pace, today I actually had a increase - yay - maybe the worm is turning - so yesterday and today's 60r20 70% HRR

Row series - final bash

Earlier in the week I managed this





Ran out of time to get one more attempt, not so much to get the fastest score faster but more to hold off the slow one, but had this from Wednesday.

October ctc 11x111 r1

Not a great morning row, only 40 minutes done of the 60r20 70%, so looked for something fun at lunch and the ctc came to mind, was talking with Jonathan Bone and he was kind enough to lend me his time as a target :) after the warm up I went in aiming at 1:19, counted out 12 strokes and added in a extra one when needed lol

Snapped the brass ferrule on the second rep which went flying off... Bit unnerving for a moment, lost my seating a couple of times but no major issues.


Drag 142

Well I am happy, managed to hit 16k on a 60r20 70% for the first time in this particular come back, lots of small steps make long journeys.

Row series "Nightmare on Elm Street" take 5

Target was 1:36.0 for 500s and then basically start and finish the 1500m. I've HD'd three time on the session this week. So it really was a mind game in the "20 seconds rest" as well as the first 500 of the 1500m I hit 1k to go at 1:38.0 pace which I was surprised at. Last 300m was driving down from 1:35 to 1:24 final stroke..

Bit annoyed, not on the OCD fail... but that I don't have access to erg over the weekend other than my model b and time has run out to get to that so my score from Friday will stand. I believe I have a another few seconds in the session at the moment, with more attack at the start and finish from further out (1:24 final stroke shows I left it too late) but there we go.

4,3,2,1 r18, r20, r22, r24 based on 70%hrr hour pace

Even the title for this one is long, never mind setting it up this morning before work as a interval session lol based on 1:53.0 pace for my 70% HRR hour I had the targets on the paper..
