Oh yeah, I should have mentioned my size, it's half the reason I'm being made to "audition" for the team! I'm 6ft3 and 110kg atm - decent strength levels, decent fat levels too
Kinda depends what your fitness levels are like - you've got weight and height behind you, which will play to your advantage. 1km is just on the edge of being able to hold on if you blow, but pretty hard to call not knowing your fitness levels. I'd try some 500m sprints and see how you feel at the end of them.
I've not done a 2k test for a while so figured I should have a crack before the BRIC to see roughly where I'm at. I've been feeling like crap since the weekend so took a couple days off from training and thought I'd just aim for my previous PB and go from there. Pretty pleased with the result as I knocked a couple seconds off my previous time fairly easily while not feeling 100%. My last 2k was all out and I was ruined afterwards, so it's good to know I can go faster with some still left in the tank!
Ooff nice work! Sub 7 should easily be achievable
Done this a few times over lockdown - 3x(5x(20s on 40s off)) r34-36 5:00r between sets, and going into the first one I honestly thought they'd be easy ("it's only 20s on!!"), but they're actually pretty horrible at this kinda pace.
A challenge for anyone who fancies it Although weight is definitely an advantage for this kinda thing...
