Re: Strength training vs Erging

I may have missed it, but would appreciate if someone could post the name of the book being referenced. I've always been pretty vocal about avoiding weights and just erging and rowing; well, I'm changing up my approach this winter. To the OP, we're very close in size (6' 165lbs age 62). I have a few...

Re: 2nd Head Race Season - lessons learned

Nice racing Glen! I find I really enjoy the head races, all sculling (1x and 2x) on my end. Definitely love the synergy when me an Marianne get the double moving well. I think as we get better OTW we'll find that we'll be able to get closer and closer to the level of effort we throw into the erg. Bu...

Re: Am I LWT or HWT?

OTW LWT is 160lbs. I'm one of those fringe guys. Got up this morning, with no recent dieting or heavy training I was at 168lbs. So I can make 165 very easily with a day or two's notice. I raced OTW at sub 160lbs twice and it took a lot of work to make weight. Most of the fast LWT's (not all, Roy Bro...

Re: Head of the Schuylkill Regatta 10/28/18

Thanks Stewart. I'm a real data junkie, you can learn a lot analyzing stroke coach data. Since you mentioned it, you saw what I saw. First split through St Joes (about 800m)m I was right in the mix with the guys in the top ten (+/- 5sec ). Next split at the tower (2000m?) same thing. Third split at ...

Re: Head of the Schuylkill Regatta 10/28/18

Good to hear from you G-dub. I plan on doing several erg races this year, just local events. Center City Slam I'll do as I won it last year against six other local 60+ guys, two of them are beating me on the water.......but I'm closing the gap. No more Boston or WIRC; it's just too much of an invest...

Re: Head of the Schuylkill Regatta 10/28/18

Thanks Bill! Nice result with second place. I'm to a point where I'll move up the results sheet when I row a perfect line and a clean race. I hit everything else dead on; just got way too wide on one turn. I wasn't the only one, lots of people seemed to make the same mistake. Fitness wise I think I ...

Head of the Schuylkill Regatta 10/28/18

Haven't posted since my last OTW race. I'll start serious erging in about two weeks as it gets too cold to row on the river. Took delivery of my new bow rigged Wintech 1x last month. I really like the boat; very stable and I guess it's fast enough. Not sure there's any real such thing as a fast boat...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Rod, continuing with your thoughts I think the long, rate capped easier rows are even more beneficial OTW as compared to the erg as you get to work on technique. It's really amazing how much nuance goes into rowing a 1x or 2x and how easy it is to slow a boat down. We're doing similar work with only...

Re: Quaker City Regatta

Yup, done with the sprints. Getting a tad fried on the short, fast intervals. Going to take two weeks of nice longish (6k to 10k) low rate rows then start getting in shape for head race season. Spending a lot time in the 2x with Marianne; we keep getting better. Starting to get pretty serious, we're...

Quaker City Regatta

Haven't posted much, been doing virtually zero erging, all OTW. Went to Diamond States Regatta two weeks ago and the afternoon races (my 2x race) were canceled due to high winds. Disappointing. This weekend was scheduled for two races (1x and Mixed 2x). Seems like me and Marianne are jinxed as our 2...

Re: Wearable technology

Speed Coach GPS by NK is probably the best. Not cheap ($400), totally water proof. Does NOT float, so tie it off with the supplied lanyard. The new ones come with an attached float/ bouy. I'm not a technology geek, but there's lots of connectivity available, last race I was at they had the capabilit...
