6:43. Leavin too much for the last 200m n can't make up the time. I'm beginning to think 6:28 is out of my reach! May hav to try pacing myself early n save a bit for last 500m.

For under 7min work ya jus feel wrecked afterwards. Seems to be good for upper body strength n tone.

Mite try sum 1km sprints n 5km endurance to see if they help. Now to try stay off the piss, exercise(ride!!!) n eat right for the week off!

So you're actually not improving. I went through this 8 years ago. Really wanted a sub-7 minute 2km - never got it. Found it really hard to go from 7:12 just to 7:09. One thing I did was interval training where I'd try to pull a few secs under the pace required for my target 2km time. You can only go for a 2km record once a week (I could anyway). The Concept2 website has plenty of training programs to get your time down in about 6-8 weeks - check it out. Your 3 weeks time frame is probably too ambitious I reckon. You have the body-frame, it ain't just gonna happen. You have to train for it. Do a few 5km rows - you should get 18:something easy. Then 2km will feel easier.

In response to the person who asked which setting is easier, I did a test with my heart rate monitor and found none are easier. I averaged 200watts for 4 mins at a steady pace and recorded distance and heart rate. Distance and heart rate were very close to within 2/3m and 3 bpm (average was 1005m and 142bpm) for setting 1, 5 and 10. However, i found my technique was terrible on one as i was rowing too fast and found 10 to be too slow and high load and rekon this would be a injury risk when the watts get higher. I find 6 is ideal for me as im a lanky cardio type person. Nice high cadence and can really get the watts high on it. BTW i only have a measure on 4min runs, but i score 1205m on 6.

There has to be a way we can hook some of you guys into the grid and generate electricity.

I do 2 klm in 8 mins 50 sit ups then another 2 klm and 50 sit ups and I am wasted.

I find I need to be really, really careful with my shagged knees. If I get rough in my action it hurts them.

Definitely wouldn't say doin it comfortably but is gettin easier. Nd to sprint the last 300m/30 strokes home instead of last 200m/20 strokes I think

Gonna go all out Monday for 6:28 as last chance for a week

They're good times, Bagga. What's your height, weight and age if you don't mind me asking?
I've set a challenge for staff (we have 2 x concept 2's at work) where teams have to do 3km between a few people, interesting to see people get motivated. It's so taxing on the whole body.
