Apologies, that comment was not directed towards Lawrence.
There was a far taller thrower with American links who I had heard called the 7ft syringe, he and his wife had both served bans.


Ah yes, Carl Myerscough, 6ft10, The Blackpool Tower. Roided Up to his eyeballs.

Iím 32 now and did do a little bit as a teenager and entered BIRC in the 2k back in Ď05. I didnít pick the handle up between about 2007 and 2018 when I started sprint training again.
Iím 118kg, 198cm with a 210cm arm span. I came 7th at the Commonwealth Games in 2010 in the discus, and a frustrating 4th at this years World Indoor rowing champs in the 500m back in February.
I think thatís about it really - Iíve been a long time lurker on Sugden since about 2010!



Thanks for that. An illustrious sporting past. I'm a couple of inches taller than you, but about the same weight. Wingspan is 213cm. I've only just started rowing, but I'm quite enjoying it.

Look forward to seeing you pushing your times in the coming months. Your 1000m is the only one where I feel like I'm in the same ballpark as you.

I look forward to following your progress, clearly you have the levers and potential to go very fast!

The 1000m is something I've been meaning to revisit - both my 1k and 2k time were done at rate 24 as I just don't have the fitness to rate higher for long!

Thanks mate Grin

Given that I'm distinctly mediocre at lifting (I'm not predisposed to carry huge amounts of muscle, but my cardiopulmonary system is strong) it's nice to find something I might be good at.

Thats a very impressive time even for one with such natural advantages, I think 16.30 should be achievable in the longer term.

Come on team BOAR

Thankyou sir Grin

My best explanation is that in some respects a longer row feels a lot like the road cycling time trials I did as a kid. I did 10 mile trials (25:02 was my best) most weeks and from the ages of 13-16 I cycled to and from school twice a day. It was 2.4 miles, and I cycled home for lunch too. I always used to go hell for leather, trying to beat my pbs, so I had 3 years of intense 6-8 minute interval training when I was growing at my fastest. I think that just gave me really big lungs.

Plus now that I have a strength base to go with that latent cardiovascular capacity, the rowing feels quite natural. Still massive amounts of work to be done, but there is perhaps potential there to be some sort of erging mutant Cool

A modest and slightly accidental 2000m on at 6:40.1.

The intention was two sub 6:50 2ks so I set out at about a 1:41-1:42 pace. I got within 500m of the end and pushed it a bit to get a 'cheap' pb.

I decided against the second set as frankly, I was a bit tired and I also slightly tweaked my lower right trap pressing yesterday. 6:40 will do for the time being Happy

Thanks for the updates! Two questions though - what happened to Loz on the 500m and could you possibly pop my 5k time on too please?

I wonder how old some of those times are?

My 10k and HM are 10 years old.

A new thread for 2021 with nothing older than 01 01 20?
