Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I rowed 6 * 10 minute intervals with 2 minute rest at an average 2:10. Nothing crazy, but this was the first time in 5 years that I managed to do a full hour in one session. I have a disc prolapse in my neck and have had some major lows. So I am happy with this. Well done. Your first step back to w...

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

Thanks to Dangerscouse for recommending to give 6kms a new try. Indeed, the final time worked out nicely, despite still feeling a bit sick (stomach still bothering me :x) https://i.imgur.com/Cbs8fEd.png Didnt enjoy a single second though :lol: There it is!! I had a strong feeling that you'd set a P...

60' today (13974m)

Most distance I've ever covered in a week at 61.7k.

Can't say it was meticulously planned, but hopefully it's all helping.
It will be helping, and that is a solid weekly total

Re: If you ever wanted evidence of the power of the mind...

A teammate of mine has done this exact method for a 10k PB (33:17!!!!). He thinks that if he tried maintain the 1:39 pace constantly he would have failed, but alternate intensities made it a lot more bearable. I need to give this a try sometime soon as it defo sounds like there are some tangible be...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I'm due to have a crack at 2x10min/2R later today.....what would be a sensible target for that? I did 2x2500m/2R last week and averaged 1:52.6@25.....so I was thinking putting a conservative target of 1:54 and then aiming for a faster second split if I'm feeling tip top......thoughts? TIA Yeah, sou...

Re: Introduce yourself

Heya gals! I’m a fairly new rower, just started in April. I’m not a sprinter — while they’re (super) fun, I quite quickly become fearful I’ll get tired, which ruins the fun a bit, and then, inevitably, I do get tired. So, a vicious cycle! But, in my (admittedly short) rowing career thus far, I’ve d...

Week 3 of 9. Hard 30 min. Target: 8310 @ 1:48.3 Actual: 8332 @ 1:48.0 0.8 seconds better than last week. Was holding myself back most of the way. Dont want to wipe myself out every week.

Alex you are right it should be fun and by and large it is - even when maxxing out. I reckon you are doing great and have quickly identified strengths and weaknesses and a way forward. Just slowing down and getting into a good rhythm will make all the difference.
Totally agree

been training properly training since april. Got my 2k from 8:00 to 7:35.6. Hit some other pbs last week too such as 500 from 1:45 to 1:36.1. I was so happy with my 2k time i wanted to shout from the rooftops so thought this was the next best place.
Great effort on both PBs. Well done

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Thanks very much everyone. I'm still desperate to get sub 36 as this session is my nemesis. I just seem to have a mental block with it and I crumble too easily when I need to dig deeper, but this defo blew away some apprehension of a faster pace that has been building after so much time away from th...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

https://i.postimg.cc/QKQX24Cm/20190911-072617.jpg A little test to just see where I am. Intended to aim for 37:20 but I got carried away and almost lost with 3.5k to go and then gurned and grimaced the rest of the way home. I'm still far from top form so this was a nice surprise.

Re: Question on warm up.

Here is what I believe to be the original story, from https://www.c2forum.com/viewtopic.php?t=5373 (which was itself a repost): An anecdote I have related before illustrates the point. Several years ago while coaching at Michigan in the pre-erg era, a staple workout was to have the team run a dozen...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I did a short (5k), slow session last night as a recovery row as my legs were tired and sore. I post, as I often wonder - is there any use in these type of sessions or would I be better served just taking the day off or doing some upper body work? I know slower, less intense sessions are good to do...

Re: Question on warm up.

That brisk walk will be doing you quite a lot of good to prepare you for the session Actually, Mike Caviston has a story about that too. I don't remember all the details, but I think it goes like this: When he trained his girl team, sometimes some of them hadn't done their homework, and as punishme...
