10 Miles Back Again

That’s excellent from what I understand.

It’s only for 100m at a time though, pretty confident I couldn’t keep it up for the full 500m. Be interesting to try one time though, might line that up for next week.

I really want to see what I can do for 500m straight out now.

Yeah I could take a serious crack at the world record in the 70-79 age bracket.
I had a 1.43 500m average for a 1000m row. So I guess 1.30 wouldn’t be impossible for 500.

Make sure you take a picture when you’re done, if I didn’t have a hacking cough right now I’d go set the standard!

I had my 6 x100m emom. Average speed 1.33/1.35 per 500m.
It’s getting a bit tough now. BUT the results are showing. I used to die after 4 sets. I’m now waiting till set 6 to die. Which is nice.

@SvenG cheers dude, and welcome to the log.

@alex_uk still got a long, long way to go to catch you man. When I do, we’ll find a strongman comp that you, me and @carlbm can all rock up to though.

I don’t find squats cause much, if any soreness in my legs. I think of squats as hurting my soul more than any individual muscles. A hard set of leg extensions and my quads hurt. A hard set of squats and my everything hurts.

@doomyguy strangely, I seem to be better (relatively) at front squats than back squats. But I also cheat and don’t try the movement very often, which makes PRs easier. Plus, my last PR on this movement was fasted, beltless and sleeveless and this one wasn’t.

@jdm135 thanks man. Was meant to be just a bit of a quick session for some squatting volume, but the emotional side of me was getting a bit pissed off at my perceived lack of progress so decided to just stack up things that suck.

@carlbm it’s a workout I stole from you, kinda. It’s my go to “let’s do something squat-ey that sucks”. The SSB was to try and make it easier, which massively backfired.

@ChongLordUno cheers man, good luck tonight.
