I finally did it! I just pulled as hard as possible for the entire time. Got it down to 1:26 pulls for awhile then it crept up to 1:32 toward the end. I wanted to die when it was over, what a sucky feeling! (1:28,47 cal,470watts,37ave.stroke)

So Jeff, did the advice payoff re: pushing harder with the legs more than concentrating on the pull?
Gotta get my fat a** back to the gym.
Congratulations on hitting a milestone.

Yes, that is key for sure. Drive with the legs, HARD. Also lean back slightly at the end of the pull. I did a fast pace through 200m, around 45ppm. Then slowed to keep from gassing early and just pulled as hard as I could. I used the return to recoop between pulls.

Now back to working on my strength deficits...

Wow! Nice work! (I haven't broken 1:38 in a year, so 1:28 seems like another dimension.)

What's your BW (if I may ask)?

Jeff,

Great Job! What damper setting did you use? Was this the same setting you normally use or did you change it? Thanks, David

Thanks David W. and David S.
6'2" 174lbs, I'm guessing my height helps me more than my weight. I own the model B so I have the fan closed off and I use the large, inner sprocket. I tried the smaller sprocket once, didn't like the feel so put it back and never moved it again.

Well done Jeff. I got a PB yesterday 1.35 for 500m. I tried sculling for the first time yesterday with a rowing club - that definitely changes your technique on the C2 for the better.
I had the damper on level 10 bytheway..
