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: What Training Have You Done Today?

That's some serious work there Rod. Be curious to see how the Maffetone protocol works out for ya, keep us posted.

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...

Re: Schuylkill Navy Regatta

Hey Bill, thanks for the comments. Didn't know if I was just being whiney, but the waking sure seemed to be a factor in both of my races. By contrast I was driving a launch at the Club Nat's on the Cooper today and the official was all over me to be careful with the throttle and not wake any of the ...

Re: Best Plan to Go Back to Rowing 20 years later

As Greg mentioned, 5k way too much. Our club just purchased two new Wintechs, a 21 and a 24. About 4k each. The 21 is a very stable gig, the 24 is similar to a Mass 24. These boats will handle any weight range, they're wide enough that you don't have to worry about lighter rowers being unstable. Jam...

Re: Schuylkill Navy Regatta

Glen, you summarized it nicely. My steering has gotten much better; but I still find myself drifting towards the buoy lines and losing time making corrections. I have the same problem losing focus on my "point" and getting off target. Pulling hard for sure, just need to correct instantly. Our starts...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Hobbit, I started breaking up the long sessions just like you're doing. I find if I go "straight through" when I take a drink, or tighten the straps the pace drops. Then I'm going much harder to get the average back down and it throws off the whole session. Taking those 60s breaks I can get some wat...

Schuylkill Navy Regatta

Haven't been posting, zero erg work and 100% on the water. Seem to be getting a little better and a little faster. Hard to tell OTW as there are so many variables. But the trend seems to be faster. Still waiting for my new Wintech 1x, sold my Pocock so I'm in between boats. I've been focusing mostly...

Re: Schuylkill Navy Regatts

Cool, I'll see if I can find ya. One of the guys I row with at Cooper actually rows for Undine; Chris Haines. Mostly 1x, 49 yrs old. Hopefully see ya there. I'm doing the mixed 2x on Sunday and the mens 2x on Sunday.

Re: Schuylkill Navy Regatts

If I can find your club I'll stop by and say hello.Our season just started, sounds like you've had a fair amount of success. Maybe I'll come down next year when we're freezing up here!

Re: Schuylkill Navy Regatts

Bill, are you going to IDR? Also, what's your new team.
Thanks Paul, the current accounted for some of the time pick up; but we were going way harder than our practice runs and way faster than last year on the same river with some current. As you know lots on variables on the water.

Schuylkill Navy Regatts

Haven't been posting much, zero erging and 100% OTW since April. Lots of work in the 1X and 2x. Went to Calm Waters Rowing back in May with four team mates; highly recommended. Me and Marianne did our first race of the season in the 2x yesterday. There were (12) Masters in the Mixed 2x event, the he...
