Re: January challenge results

If you have a concern about fake results you should write an email to rowing@concept2.com and have the folks that can actually do something about it take a look at your report. Also true. There is a process of review of suspect results in place @ Concept 2. The process is challenge-driven. Contact ...

Re: 60 000 m a week is killing me

Minimalist shoes are crap imo. Zero drop up to 4° drop is desirable. You can get that in a cheap UnderArmor with enuf stiffness in the soles to avoid cracking a metatarsal or detaching a plantar fascia.

Re: Statins

⬆️ Third restatement of the obvious by this querulous defender of the statins quo. Good luck to the OP and keep us in the loop on the effectiveness of the probiotic alternative, by PM if necessary.

Re: 24 week Pete Plan

A correction and apology due you, Kris. I mistook dknickerbicker’s stat line for yours, which I find doesn't exist. For Beginner PP, you will need to start where you are. If you could “barely breath” during your single 5k effort, best pace prescription would be slow enuf to allow you to breath comfo...

Better results are possible if we can get the work saved into the handle.

Re: Statins

The primary cause of death in the world is ischemic heart disease. But not the ONLY cause certainly. There are a number of challenges to health, independence, physical and mental competence that are worse than death. I provide a link to a study that suggests a downside to statin use. If further evi...

Research done at UC San Diego. Not click bait, Brit or domestic! On the physio side, I have reason to respect the damage that Atorvastatin taken long term is capable of.

Re: 24 week Pete Plan

Stats line in your siggy says you’re ready for BPP. The cautions about conservative rate of pace improvement per week still apply but doubt you’ll have much trouble with increases in steady state volume. Do the work and accept the results. Force the results and recovery won’t be sufficient to enable...

Can’t remember if it was W. C. Fields who said: “Never work with dogs or kids.” Guess Andy Griffith got away with it but generally good advice for actors and telegenic ergers! Those dogs are naturals at upstaging and fotobombing, particularly the sesame Shiba. Is the smaller merled spitz dog also sh...

Re: Slide Rubber Feet and Oily Residue

Good thinking. Concept 2 has honored their warranty by replacing faulty items much more expensive than eight rubber feet.
