Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

https://i.postimg.cc/w1CYv2Dh/20191215-172416.jpg Frustrating session. Supposed to be a HM and as I slept in I didn't get a chance to do it this morning so I had to try later on as I can't row tomorrow morning. I had a jacket potato for lunch and it was really affecting my breathing as I had to try...

Re: Weekly training and long terms plans

So I have a standard that I would love to be able to hit each year. 1min 350; 500<1:30; 4min 1200; 2k <7; 5k =18; 30min = 8k; 10k =38:00. I am currently still able to get the first three, haven't made the sub 7 this year but not yet given up hope. In 22 years of owning a C2 (OK only 15 of which hav...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Next up is 28K, 30K, another half marathon and the full marathon. If I was you I'd do 30k and then 35k instead of 28k and 30k. There's not much physiological difference between 28k & 30k from 25k but I always find when you get over 30-32k it really starts to bite and you don't want your very first ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

60' L4 184-192-180-184-180-184 2334m, 2356m, 2315m, 2318m, 2309m, 2320m 13951m total at 2:09. Really had to focus to stay at the correct rate and not over-stroke. First time I've incorporated the 192 sequence into a 60' row. Amazing how much harder it seems than 188. Four extra strokes! What are th...

Re: Weekly training and long terms plans

I'm terrible at following plans, not because I'm too arrogant to think that I know better but I just like to more or less do what I want to do, apart from 10 miles on a Monday morning. Accordingly I'm going to try and follow Pete Plan as it is a very highly regarded plan. My short / medium term targ...

Re: Newbie here and loving it but after some advice....

No need to get concerned about heart rate, it is what it is. I know two really excellent rowers (circa 6 mins 2k) and one gets over 200 and the other will struggle to break 155.

Re: New member and rower, tips on my technique?

I'm not the best person to ask regarding technique, but you look to have got the basics sorted, but try not to snatch at the end of the stroke: it should be a smooth motion with no jerks or yanking, otherwise you lose some of the power from the leg drive. Also try and lean back a little bit more as ...

Re: Beginners 10k: Timing Expectations and Development Help

It is easy to get disheartened as a beginner seeing what the super fit experienced rowers can do. For most normal humans completing a 5 minute row is an achievement and so a 10k at any pace is a great achievement. That said, technique is the most important thing for any beginner, errors propagated ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Never done Pilates....considered it a few times. I switched to some stretching this morning and foam rolling. I think it's just tender around the sitting bone from the HM, possible pinching a nerve. Sadly I sit down all day for work so it's not great. A window to do more upper body strength work I ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I tried this morning, 3km intervals at slow pace but only managed 2 as it got a bit sore in my left glute. Felt a bit of pain down the leg from it so thought it best to stop. Pretty pissed off now that I did the HM and it's preventing me from sticking to my plan. Not sure how long I'll need to stop...

7654m in 30 mins (1:57.5 @ r21). It was all I had time for as I slept in longer than expected.

Re: Weight Loss Workout Plan Help

Welcome to the forum and for rowing doing long and slow sessions (preferably 40 mins +) will be the most beneficial for weight loss.

Best of luck with it all

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

A few easy 2ks today just to get the metres in as well as a 1.5k at around PB pace followed by a fast-ish 500 a few minutes later. I think I'm making progress getting back to where I was before ill as the 1,500 was tough but not brutal. I was aiming for 1:42.5 pace and managed to hit it and hadn't ...
