Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

https://i.postimg.cc/2Vk3dLZc/IMG-20201021-074629-797.jpg This was a tough one. I struggle with r24-26 so it was harder than it looks. Today wasn't a good day either so this was a struggle. I kept HR around 90% as this felt comparable to the RPE. 3k done as cooldown but I couldn't get my HR down un...

Re: How to stop my machine migrating off the mat

I have put pieces of cut up yoga mat under the feet, as mine started to move around despite it being on C2 mat.

I found barbell plates also moved around and didn't help, but I heard a recommendation of bags of gravel for the front of the erg too

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

First training in my new house, great! :D We expect PBs next week For some reason the BT connection between PM5 and ergdata would not work today. Was planning on a 60r20 16k, but was using way too much time fiddling around with the connection issue, so went with a fast 30r20 Have you recently updat...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Started my 30r20 today and noticed I was going well enough that with just a little more power would get a new 30min PB, so increased with 5min to go and added 150m to it. 7603 to 7753. :) One thing I noticed is that now that I’m getting more comfortable on the erg is that one my stroke rate was mor...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

This is such an a amazing result and adds to your list of PBS this year, you just keep getting better. Thanks mate. It seems to be coinciding with doing more volume (89k) last week and slowing down my steady pace (circa 2:00 was standard, now I'm doing circa 2:05 a lot more). We are all different a...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

I've not done any 2k training in a while... so in line with how my training usually benefits the opposite of what I think I'm training for, the 2k obviously had to go. The softest of my PBs, but one that was scaring the bejaysus out of me. 1st flat out 2k since June 2019. Warm up: 5k at 2:16 2x30" ...

PP 1.5 - hard distance. Decided to go for a 5K PB - got it by 8 seconds. Onwards and upwards

I agree with Max about posting in the PB thread, and well done that's a big improvement

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I'm doing a lot of things wrong at the moment, I can't get close enough on the catch because I carry a lot of weight in my stomach. I'm also not really putting much power into it. I'm a chicken about my back and when I put more power into it, I feel a twinge between my shoulder blades. I'm engaging...

I'll keep it light this week with a hope I can restart again next week.......very frustrating.
Make sure you do take it slowly, and listen to your body. I'm a terrible patient too, but sometimes you've got to properly rest.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I am very new and very out of shape. I've had my rower around 20 days now. The first day, I couldn't last more than 1000 meters. I finally got up to 5000 meters very slowly on Oct 9th, took me a laughable 35:22.. I've been doing 5000 meters every other day since, trying to keep my heart rate around...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Thanks for the advice Stu. Yes it was specified, I’ll do it twice in the programme, once more near the end of it to compare. The rest of the programme agrees with what you have said, with 500m being the lowest interval distance. I’ve also changed the number of sessions I do per week versus to what ...

Its deffo not lasting 45 seconds.. Its more like 10 seconds (after a input or rowing stops)
That's not right; mine stays on for 45 seconds. May be worth contacting C2?
