Registered for Windsor rowing nationals end of oct. Been training semi regularly following an online training program which seems ok. Some of the sessions are just annoying so making them a bit shorter and higher intensity. Not flat out so I can't effectively train but some are slow strokes per minute and slightly less slow 1k at each pace. Prefer doing 5-6k faster then 8k slower.
Aim to try get all sessions done a week out from the event and give the 2k a flat out go. Previous race (only) did 6.37 would love to be at 6.20 and at least sub 6.30.
6.20 is a stretch but would put me top three in my age (30-39) on the concept 2 site in Aussie submitted times and top 20 worldwide.
Probably stopping after this comp although might try row a half marathon in the days after the race to tick it off while fit.
