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

https://i.postimg.cc/rdpSdftJ/IMG-20200807-070232-264.jpg I think this is my eighth PB in four months. Didn't expect much today so maybe later on in the month I can get it closer to 17:15. Heat and humidity definitely played a part today and I almost HDed three times from 3k onwards. HR hit 99% as ...

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

Thanks for your reply. Yes, it's definitely the constant grip pressure under the nails causing the damage - possibly exacerbated by softening of the skin under the nails due to sweat. It doesn't affect my nailes for any distances less than about 35km or so. Since I've been off the machine now (gym ...

Re: Trying to understand calorie burned

I have no idea how many calories you will be burning, or anyone else for that matter, as perfectly summed up by Citroen, there is no point looking at the calories on the monitor other than trying to use it as something similar to distance or time spent rowing. I can guarantee you will be burning a l...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

OK, twice this week we have done pretty much the same workout. I did 10k today at 2:00 pace for 40 minutes and19 SPM was hoping to keep HR at 130 as well but it didn't happen, started out 126 for first 2K but then climbed about 4 BPM every 2K and ended at a 132 average. Just wanted an simple workou...

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

I really need to force myself to negative split next try and see if it helps avoid the late slowdown before the final sprint. I think the distraction and discipline required to neg split will be very useful to get you through the first 10 mins, then the second 10 mins you can keep building up pace ...

Re: Improving my (beginning) training

Given the feedback, It seems fair to me that I should likely row slower and longer for my purposes. Certainly the last 5500m I did on Monday was tiring but not grueling and I was able to keep some conversation up with my wife but was sweating a bit. Heart rate was pretty stable but perhaps reducing...

Re: Stroke rate variability

Thanks for the reply. I'm really trying to determine if stroke rate has to increase as we age to compensate for a decrease in power so questions are age, steady state stroke rate and all out stroke rate. I'm not sure that you will lose significant power as you get older. You will lose some strength...

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

First, thanks for calling me out - I need a kick in the *$$. I have always thought I was very tough mentally and it allowed me to do good things in sports even in past years in CF. At times I show it on the ERG but shocked how many times I allow my mindset to change. Will just except it as a learni...

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

Well, another good improvement in PB but another missed goal and another loss to the chimp that cost me. 30 Minute PB - 8366 90M improvement but old PB was really old and low hanging fruit. Goal was 8400m+(1:47.1 pace) and I just didn't get it done. Was on pace if not too fast early but thought I w...

Re: ErgZone Calculation vs. My Calculation, % Heart Rate Reserve

That means my newly discovered slower rows at 130 HR are too low too when I was worried I was too fast. I am more confused now :shock: Hahaha, so am I!! I'm going to keep using 130 as a guide as I have found some very notable training benefits from it, and it still feels reasonably hard too. As lon...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I saw on a YouTube that rowing strapless was a good for you... and a good sense check on your stroke.. 3 days into trying it just done a 75min, 19R 17k row, and my lower abs/ groin are burning... is this to be expected? Yeah. Strapless rowing will identify any weaknesses in your core muscles as you...

Re: ErgZone Calculation vs. My Calculation, % Heart Rate Reserve

if your MHR = 170 and your resting is 64 then HRR = 106 (assuming your MHR is a real effort and not derived from a formula) 70% MHR = 74 + 64 = 138 80% MHR = 85 + 64 = 149 so your aerobic/cardio sessions should be in that range - average HRs are useless it is the cap that is important. When you do ...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Hi again, Just to be sure, in the BPP there's 3 weekly workouts (+ 2 optional ones), so there are between 2 and 4 resting days. Can I choose any days of the week to rest ? I mean I don't have to finish the 3 workouts in 3 consecutive days ? Also do I have to complete the 3 weekly workouts or can I ...
