Re: Why i failed my 100k row, and why thats okay.

Hi UV, it's Stu from Instagram. I do agree that a time of 7hrs 15 will have been a millstone around your neck: as it slipped away your motivation will have drained away with it. I think there are three main issues. Only doing a max of 38k was a mistake as you need to get relatively comfortable with ...

Re: Extended periods near maximum heart rate

I find the biggest issue of really hard sessions is the toll it takes on the Central Nervous System. You feel drained and doing it too much without sufficient rest will just keep draining you, exactly what Paul was referring to with Craig Alexander's quote.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

This past week for some reason or another all the strength that i had lost in my left arm has come back which i'm over the moon about :D Things are no longer a real struggle, and performances are pretty much about back on track. Though i am proceeding with some caution and careful with how much i l...

Re: Not getting much force from my legs

I have never paid any attention to peak force on Ergdata it's all about pace or watts imo.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Back to basics with my favourite 10 miles session. Started off at 1:57.2 for the first split so that set my pace and I surpringly managed to keep it very consistent until I actually tried to be consistent on the 12k split. 11:43.5. 3000 1:57.2. 20 11:43.5. 6000 1:57.2 20 11:43.4. 9000 1:57.2. 20 11:...

Re: Not getting much force from my legs

Do you mean watts when you say 100-110? If you don't do weightlifting you can regularly do bodyweight squats / split squats & lunges to build up power in your legs. Another way of engaging your legs more in the drive is to focus on pushing more with your left for one stroke, then your right leg for ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Seems my stroke length averages from 1.30m to 1.42m... That seems a bit low ... no? Don't worry about it, I don't think it means very much other than making sure that you keep within your own range. I always used to average 1.39-1.42 but for longer rows I'm getting up to 1:45 as i think i lean back...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

3 x 3000m today, separate pieces. Slow, fast, slow. I'm slowly getting back to where I was in October so now working on getting back into PB-attempt shape. Middle 3k done at 5k PB pace of 1:48.8, without maxing out heart rate. Trying to rate a bit higher for 5k so this was done at 27 rather than pr...

https://i.postimg.cc/9wVtM1WC/20200223-124640.jpg HR capped @130 steady session as I needed to go a bit easier today and I neglect the green zone metres too much. R17 and 2:05 pace just chose themselves as I had no preconceptions, and the first split was skewed as I stopped to open a window and put...
