About 2:16 at the moment for the 2K, which is pretty laughable. Of course it was much worse about a month ago when I tried a real 2k for the first time and bonked after the first 800m, and I am taking seconds off every week. I would need to get it down to around 1:45 to be one of the top competitors in my age group locally. Anything below 2:00 and I would not be embarrassed. I've learned that there is a whole lot of technique to it that I am still struggling with. Physical coordination does not come easy to me.BRUTE wrote:what's Dragline's 500m pace on the rower?
Then there is the other demoralization factor of your high school and college kids doing it with splits under 1:35.
DW and I have talked about learning to scull together in a double at some point. I'm inspired by seeing the 70 and 80 year old masters out at some of these events.
