At home, I swung it out on the erg for an hour. Was at a 20, focusing on form, pulling a light 2:07 for the first 55 minutes or so. Then decided to DROP THE FUCKIN HAMMER and brought the average 4 seconds. I think I did the last 500m at a 1:36.
2:07? Come on, girls on my old team did better than that, even while working on their form. I mean this in a good way. Trust me, your body can do so much more than you think that you can
It's your mind that holds you back. Especially a guy your size. FWIW, I was 6'3" 182lbs when doing all of these PRs and workouts that I've posted here. Heck, I did a marathon (42,195) at a 1:55.x, ended up around 2hr 40min. So you definitely can do 2:00 for an hour.
