Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I forgot to post yesterday as it was an abject failure. I set off with the intention of doing a 30 min TT and it just felt like a massive chore and I quit after six mins. My lower back is slightly aggravated and I think trying to push through when I'm tired and in rare form was a bad idea. I couldn'...

Re: Hello!

Welcome to the forum Sam. Nav is 6'6" but no one else is as tall, that I know of, who regularly posts here. There are two 6'8" rowers in my virtual rowing team. Best of luck with it and make sure to include some Pilates or core strength training in your programmes. Stay patient as there's no short c...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

* new PB of 155kg (straight bar, +3kg). Really pleased as this has taken a while - wasn't long ago I couldn't even get 155kg off the ground! Goal is 160kg by year end with a stretch goal at some point of 180kg. Now deadlifting twice body weight most weeks. Great going on the deads PB Paul. Real pro...

Re: PM4 Ergdata Connection to Android

I have stuck with Samsung for phones, currently have an A3 (2017) but will likley update it to an A30 or the likes when the battery finally dies or they finally roll out 4G voLTE over here. Totally off subject but I have recently got the Samsung A50 instead of the S10 i was going to get. Really hap...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

I quite often find when I have slightly tweaked my back and I do a Pilates session it really helps. I thoroughly recommend regular Pilates as a perfect partner to erging.

Motion is lotion, rest is rust.

Re: First 5km time- 18:19

Very good first 5k.

As Henry says your build is very suited to rowing I found the best way to get better at 5k is to do lots of variety of distances, but 30 mins and 10k really help as they make the 5k feel quite short but they are still a lot of hard work.

Looking forward to seeing your progress

Re: Pace v SPM

I really like r22 too. It's a good rate as it has some transferable benefits to higher rates as it's a bit more aerobic but still needs some strength.

I naturally rate at r28 so lower rates have taken a bit of getting used to but I do like a challenge so it was fun mastering the slower rates too

Looks good Stu! - don't think I have done this with 2' rest - sounds like a good one.
Thanks Keith. I have to talk myself into not reducing the rest any lower. Should this be done on three mins?

10 miles, more or less, in the Goldilocks zone. Probably a bit too much into UT1 but enjoyable nevertheless

Also given your height, IMO 18 is too low a rate really to make optimum progress to your potential. Very low rates suit bigger frames. I'd suggest 20 to 24 for your steady state stuff is plenty slow enough - as long as your form holds up. Enjoy...
Yeah, good point.

Re: Pace v SPM

Welcome to the forum John. You are overthinking it, and your stroke rate doesn't really matter if you are in the 18-22 range. I always rate up when I get tired and it's not unusual. The more important part of the session is the pace, and it doesn't really matter too much if you have a higher stroke ...

Unfortunately you can't as it needs to be 21,097m exactly but you can upload it as an unverified time

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Really nice session - especially with the short recovery. I've read that 4 x750m is one of Graham Benton's key 2k test sessions. All the best for the BRIC. Thanks Phil. It was a good confidence boost as I can feel my inner chimp running out of excuses and it's starting to feel more possible to get ...

Another notch in my recovery program... Sub 3:30 1K while fighting a bad cold... I'll take that!

1000m / 3:27.9 / 1:43.9 / DF 148 / SR 28 / SPI 11.14 / 312 watts / cold start
Good session Lance. I'm a pathetic human being when I have got a cold

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

That's a great session Stu, and a very promising week so far looking at your last 10k and this interval! Thanks Martin. It does feel like I have started to make a change in my 'toughening up'. I have become too comfy with longer slower sessions and I have neglected the tougher sessions so this need...
