For my birthday at 55 i buy a water-rower Apollo PRO XL from First-Degree!
First goal: reach 5000m under 20min.
My first try ,how far i get in 20min. -> 4435m ,and first 5000m in 21m50s ,need some training ;)
A good 2 month's later i get it: 5000m in 19m56s! at level 8 - 565 strokes - 28 SPM
Next time i had 19m45s now 5000m in 19m34s! at level 8 - 551 strokes - 28 SPM (Less strokes as i was trying making longer reach strokes and ends in a faster time while keeping same SPM!)
Again faster..just concentrate more on your technic in rowing your strokes!
5000m in 19m24s! at level 8 - 538 strokes - 27 SPM
A other goal i have done was trying to hold my Vo2max. = 59 avg. for 1 year (Between age 54-55!)

After that 1year holding Vo2max.59 i have taken a winter break in running and concentrate me more with Indoor-rowing with these new personal best results:
And getting a first time under the 19min. on the 5000m!

First Garmin watch picture was to test if i'm really tired when i come into Red zone ,and yes also Runalyze showed me that my body was tired..take 1 rest day and the day after recovering i run 20sec. faster..all these indications you get helps very much..and need many patient to see some progress..after winter stop ,start running again and see after a few runs my Vo2max. has go down to 54 (still great for my age) during the first 4 month's it was staying at Vo2max.54 ,even i run faster..but then in the charts i see my condition going up ,from then i go step by step to Vo2max.61 again! And as picture 2 shows i was getting a Peaking training status..in last 2month's i have already getting 3 Peaking's and see condition goes to 100%!
third watch picture was my new best on the 5000m indoor-rowing.
