OJ gets a new personal best in Cardiff

With nerves, apprehension and adrenalin all beginning to kick in, I sat down on machine no.2 in preparation for the pain that would suddenly kick in with 500m to go.

After the words READY, ATTENTION, ROW….I was off

After a frantic start of trying to get the flywheel moving I soon settled into a steady pace. The middle part was tough because I knew that pushing too hard would end up in me crashing hard.

With 350m to go I started to up my pace and was pulling 1:36/500m finishing strong and managed to finish with a time of 6 mins 31.2 secs

Next events are the English Indoor Rowing Championships in Manchester on February 12th 2012 and the British Indoor Rowing Championships on March 25th.

Thanks for all your support!
