Re: When to Adjust Training?

OK, I officially registered for the WRIC in Long Beach, CA on Feb. 24, 2019....what have I gotten myself into? :o My main goal has always been to get a sub 6:30 by then - with my recent 6:31.6 I feel confident that I will hit sub 6:30 before the comp with my current training plan. It's still three ...

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

New 1min PB of 345m (+3) done with DF=136 and first stroke=2:04. Beforehand I'd already decided that 1:26.x would look quite nice. :D So...we creep towards 350m (definitely bit more there as could feel I was pacing things in the middle and saw a few 1:28s): https://i.postimg.cc/63Xkdxcc/20181120-13...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

First row in just under six months. I've been ridiculously busy finishing my PhD, which I submitted on Friday. Anyway, I decided to start off with 20 minutes at 2:07. I managed but it was tough (I've obviously lost a huge amount of fitness). My heart rate was reading 201 at the end (I sped up and w...

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

Thanks guys :) @jimmyshand - Congrats on your PB. A very nice finish as well :) Gave the 100m sprint a go on the skierg. Previous PB was 14.9. First run. Felt the drag factor was a bit high on this one and it felt much slower than the time displayed. Time Meters Pace Watts Cal/Hr S/M 0:14.7 100m 1:...

This was a lot harder than it might look. That free rated rep was surprisingly nice. The first two low rated reps were horrendous. I haven't slept well recently so my usual 10 mile Monday session wasn't really an option

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I think I'm so used to seeing the great times on this forum it motivates me to push myself more, which is not necessarily always productive. Very common mistake, and I all too often make it too. Discipline is a big part of training so remember why you are doing what you are doing and that it will a...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I'm just 17.8 seconds shy of 6:30, but would really love to get 6:25. An improvement of 22.8 seconds is going to be very challenging for a fellow who's only 5'10", and 51 (almost 52) - but I think I can if I keep the diet in check and keep doing the work. That is a MASSIVE amount to knock off your ...

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

Feeling really tired and sluggish recently but decided I felt okay after brisk 20 minute warm up at 2:01.7 so decided to go for a 5k PB and managed it in 18:32.8 (only about 1.5 second faster, but I'll take it). Tried to take it nice and easy and be sensible for first 2k and then try to gradually s...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

https://i.postimg.cc/Hcx1wtJz/20181117-091522.jpg This may look controlled but it was a grind for 99% of it. Fourth day in a row training, and it has taken its toll. Rest day tomorrow and I really need it. Glad to have kept the stroke rate down too. Short sprint at the end to try and get under 63 m...

New 1 minute WR on the skierg for age class 40-49. The 500m wr on Monday indicated there was room for improvement on the 1 min sprint as well.

https://i.postimg.cc/CBvRVLVh/20181116-065744.jpg This was supposed to be a rest day after my very rare sprint session on Wednesday and and a tough weights session yesterday morning. I know it was a tough session as I almost lay on the floor after the third 2km and the 2 mins rest didn't feel long ...

Re: Optimal wait time between warmup and TT or SB try?

I know, and to be honest I'm starting to think about some sort of training plan but I do enjoy a steady 10 mile session and it's tough to fit in more than 2 or 3 more sessions per week along with Pilates, work and weights. We'll see, maybe 2019 is the year I take the plunge. I have seen some good r...
