Farnborough 5k erg comp

Posted by thepeteplan on March 5, 2009

Training:

Saturday = 46:32.5 / 12514m / 1:51.6

Sunday = 42:20.8 / 11014m / 1:49.8

Monday = 62:06.6 / 17008m / 1:49.5

Tuesday = 45:38.7 / 12509m / 1:49.4

Wednesday = 61:48.0 / 16514m / 1:52.2

So a good run of solid aerobic work to recover fully from whatever illness I had. Today was then a group session with a couple of other ergers:

Thursday:

10mins = 2706m / 1:51.7 / 25 (warm up)

CTC 10 x 1min / 1min rest: (Cross Team Challenge)
334m / 1:29.8 / 38
332 / 1:30.3 / 37
331 / 1:30.6 / 38
327 / 1:31.7 / 36
325 / 1:32.3 / 36
327 / 1:31.7 / 36
327 / 1:31.7 / 36
325 / 1:32.3 / 36
326 / 1:32.0 / 36
328 / 1:31.4 / 37

10mins = 3280m / 1:31.4 / 36 – CTC

I realised on the first rep that 1:29.9 was not realistic.

Warm down = 16:19.0 = 4503m / 1:48.7 / 27 – C2 challenge to put a score on the board.
4min splits: 1:52.4 / 1:49.6 / 1:49.0 / 1:45.0 / 1:33.1 (last 1m19)

Farnborough 5k indoor rowing competition:

I will be co-organising the first Farnborough indoor rowing competition. The provision date is Saturday 30th May 2009. The main race distance will be 5k, with 1min sprint races running throughout the day between 5k races. The competition will be held in the brand new Village Hotel in Farnborough:

http://www.village-hotels.co.uk/Hotels/farnborough/

There will be vastly reduced rooms on offer at the hotel for competitors and their family / friends, and there will be a post race dinner on the Saturday night organised in the hotel restaurant for anyone who wants to socialise after the race. There is also a pub serving drinks and food till late (and at lunchtime), a starbucks, and a fully equipped gym and pool within the hotel.

It would be great to see as many people as possible entering – I will post more details here once they are firmed up later this week.
