Ranking ranges ...

When you go to have a look at how your last PB ranked you are faced with the 10 year age breaks. Whether this is right or wrong is not the point to the poll (tho it can be if you want to :) )

So the question is do you alter or not .... :?:

Ok all that shit I wrote last night - forget it, its just to boring and I will never stick with it. Was up a big chunk of the night with a sick daughter and so getting to the gym was the first challenge, then decided just to do 10k at 2:00 s10mps .... 5k bored to death and stopped. Time to play and ...

I am using this concept in my training at the moment and finding it challenging. The main changes I have made are dropping my drag to 105 and of course upping my rate significantly for slower paces. The main advantage I see developing from this is that as I become comfortable with the higher rates (...

3) stick with the lower drag around 105 and practice 10m/stroke From your list option #3 is the simple choice. But at 6ft you could go a bit higher than 105. A question that could be asked is, "If I can achieve the paces I want at a lower drag and am comfortable with the rate, why add more 'stress'...

Thanks for the explanation and the graph Paul. So which do you think is more beneficial for me to improve technique? 1) use a higher drag and work on recovery speed to maintain 10m/stroke 2) use a higher drag and fixed distance of 11 m/stroke 3) stick with the lower drag around 105 and practice 10m...

Did my session today at about 105/107 DF which on the machine I was using was about 3/4. 3 other machines being used by women who were all about half my size and all with the lever pushed up to setting 10, all heaving and yanking and no wonder they get off as soon as they can. As HJS says at a low d...

Re: Question for PaulS

... The one thing to note for sure is that if you fix the DPS (S10PS, 9MPS, 11MPS) the ratio for ALL paces being done will also be fixed (different for each DPS though). The ratio can be adjusted by using the Drag Factor (Lower DF = Higher Ratio, Higher DF = Lower Ratio), about 0.1 unit of ratio fo...
