    The world record for 2k is 5:36.6. Nuts huh? WR for 10k is just over 31 mins. I can't even begin to imagine how you must feel at the end of that!
  2. Hmmm. LaF Aperta? Prob not, the one I covet most is probably a boring old 991 Turbo S.

    PB on the rower ergo today. 10k in 41:06. Passed through 5k pretty comfortably at under 40min pace but the last 3k got me. Sub 41 in my sights. Fuelling before, errrr, helps. Only getting on the ergo once or twice a week so expecting progress to be slow. Other phys is swimming and bike so all good for rowing. Gave up on the bilateral breathing. Just don't want every session I do in the gym or on the bike to be a chore and the rowing certainly is, and the bike is long and suffering.

    No half board for us. Decent restaurants locally and don't mind cooking one or two nights.

    We got Pine Cliffs in May for about £2,200 for 10 nights. Avios pays for the flights mind you.

    Top tip. Pine Cliffs in Portugal. You get an apartment with hotel accoutrements. Apartment is cleaned every day, proper big beds, loads of pools, a stack of restaurants that are good, room service if you wish (although it isn't great). We went last year and are going again in May. Whether we stump up the extra to go in school holiday time next year remains to be seen!

    Mrme: pah, feck it. Long since paid for. Cruiser - I get many many offers like that. None have appealed to date.

    Don't worry guys. Fast forward 20 years and I'll still have a nearly new V8 in the garage you can all come round to hear. I took a pic of the odometer in July last year, prob for the mpg for MrMe, and checked to see how many miles it had done since then. 160.

    Where in holy feck is he?
  10. M3 V8 - Known issues?

    Some good history of actuators etc though on Cutters. I rarely post and now the E92 forum seems full of modders.

    I rarely do and have been picked up on it before. I'm a knob though because when I do, I feel so much better throughout and can push harder obviously. Must learn ...

    Well, more amazing is that I've just posted an all time PB in the pool. 1 mile, 28:58. I think that is more down to nutition than anything, I don't normally go to the gym so soon after breakfast.
  13. 2017 Fitness Thread

    Hilarious. I dragged my sorry ass to the gym yesterday for the last session of my 30s. Didn't feel like it all and then go and post a years PB on the ergo! Odd.

    Indeed: Nottingham South. Most days.

    Well yes. Number 1 is getting to breathing on my left sorted while still getting a good session in. I can't do with breathing 50% less at the rate I'm working! It will come once left is natural. Although Monday I couldn't be arsed and just did right for the session!
