I sometimes do 500m sprints for a bit of conditioning. Average time is about 1.40. Best 1.30

I done 6:51 a few years back for 2000ms.

I read somewhere the other day that Steve Backley (olympic javelin thrower) does the national indoor rowing champs and has cloced 6:27, pretty damn good for someone whos sport entails a split seconds worth of effort.

Explosive power is extremely useful for rowing, its classed as a power endurance sport. Redgrave was even asked to join the british bobsleigh team because of the power he could generate when he tried it out. For a long limbed endurance athlete he still had a 120kg bench.

Rowed at school and was captain at Durham Uni. Depressing thing was my best time as a lightweight (~69kg) was 6:26 and i was 3rd/4th in the lightweight squad with that! Had some crazy good guys! The big heavyweights were just depressing! Unhappy

Ah right, Durham usually attracts a lot of good guys. Tried doing lightweight but decided it was pointless. Amazing fast times for a lightweight though, you obviously started young enough, I started at 19.

Dunno about amazing, there's a lad younger than me who's still training now who's doing 6:08 as a lighty. Crazy stuff!

Also did an indoor comp when I was 16, did 6:36 and came fourth. Second was 6:34, third 6:34.8. Winner was a dutch lad who did 6:12 and pulled a tongue as his picture was being taken with 500 to go! Crazy mofo, he's done 5:58 since at 75kg.

Sub 6 for a lwt is world record standard. Very high standard, I went to edinburgh where the mens team was naff but the womens was very good.

think 1min 10 is the wr, Terry must just be remembering it wrongly

your 1min 19 is pretty much world class though I think
