Good Luck SallyKate sounds challenging

I've been forced back on the torture machine by injury, actually enjoyed it today (10K) but doing fairly easy aerobic HR range

Thanks BB - I'm hoping it'll just get me back in the habit of using it as more than a big clothes dump!

Hope your injury allows you back to running soon. I might do an easy 10K at the weekend instead of a shorter one.

Good luck SK.
I have been using it more regularly over the last few months due to achilles problems when running.
There is a competition run by FM Open at the moment where you can win your own C2. It is over 10 weeks and has introduced a whole new range of training.
I also enter the C2CTC each month for a Tribesports team.

I am beginning to enjoy rowing more than I thought I would....

:-) it's a great piece of kit, my model C from 2003 is still going strong - will probably upgrade the performance monitor at some point.

5000m with rate changes today.

Feeling fatigued after yesterday's 45 mins including 7 x 20s flat out, with full recovery between. Really enjoyed it :)

A nice short one today: 20 mins steady.

BanjoBax & sinj999 both those sound good for a longer session.

Sounds a tough session sinj

I'm slow too EP, mainly looking at easy aerobic HR sessions to make up for not being able to run.

Giving legs a rest today as feel heavy need them fresh for tomorrows dry ski lesson, hopefully get at least one session in at weekend
