Re: 70 year old newbie progress

Really not much beating required to kick out what few burds reside in this bush. We know you can do 100m in 19” or you can do 200m continuous on that average per 100. 100m is a C2 ranked distance. Look at the C2 log rankings pages to see how you stack up to other rookie septuagenarians. Feeling ambi...

Re: Help me identify these screws please!

Lil C always uses dope as a positively valenced adjective or maybe it’s buck. Krumpers and rappers are big on valenced adjectives. What happened to “buck”? Everything was buck there for a bit and then it wasn’t.

Re: OTW Update

Hey Ed! Also had a thought as to your “How you doin?” after you (wisely) bailed on the Diamond State Masters couple yrs. back. Good to hear you’re doing well and making strides on the H2O. Wondering when I’ll get to see you (and Dub) race? Have to get my sorry butt up to Camden or Philly next yr.

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Yes, H2O rowing has its limitations and the about face on the short level is one amongst. And long rest at a prescribed percentage of active period pace is a practise that a lot of rec room and potting shed ergers tend to avoid due to the competing demands of the daily rat race.

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Henry, wrangling one team among several teams of Wolverine rowers in and out of a busy collegiate boathouse or gym with a limited number of machines very likely necessitated the use of time “centers” for interval starts. The “Remarks” were made on an internet forum to a self selected collection of f...

Re: Pete Plan Thr

very happy with my results today .. taking It might be better to try to make them more different. So if you had 6 min recovery, you might be able to work harder in your intervals, and so train different aspects of your physiology.

LWM the customary scenario but either HWF or an additional LWF can fill the empty seat.

Hey Dave. Busy month I guess. Nothing wrong that an 18 yr. old body and a 30 yr. old brain wouldn’t fix. When I sprint, The Bear licks his chops. :?

Re: No resistance 1 stroke every 30-50. What to look for.

Pull the flywheel. Lay it in on its side on rags or absorbent paper towels, bore vertical. Flush the needle rollers in the bore liberally with kero, mineral spirits, or wd40 to dissolve the grease lube. Relube with 20W oil. Heavy mineral oil will work fine. High viscosity grease is a bad choice.

See this handle littering the floor around multi-station, cable/weight stack machines. It attaches to the cable by carabiner or snap shackle.

Thank you all for the input.
Before the end of the year my goals are marathon sub 3 hours and 2,000m sub 7 min. I'll get back with updates in a couple of weeks.
Burning candle both ends training speed and extreme endurance together. Makes conflicting demands on adaptable 2a type muscle fibers.
