Re: Introduce yourself

For half and full marathon training plans. Eddy Fletcher comes to mind. There are training goals or performance waypoints in all preparation. Stu and I have hinted at a couple, most obvious being conditioning to continuous distance. (Ex.: The half is a waypoint on the road to the full.) And for test...

Re: Introduce yourself

Incidentally, the average for the “bulk” or big chunk (21k) of the HM distance, based on your spitballed pacing, would be closer to 2:19 than to 2:20, Emmy. That’s 42” difference between calculated vs. hoped for result over the 42 500m splits of the HM. It took me 13 completed .5Ms to improve my bes...

Re: Introduce yourself

Emmy, I’d feel more confidant of your chances after you do an all-in 10k @ 2:15-2:16 pace or several continuous distance rows of 60-80’ @ 2:20 average or both. On a positive note, it’s you set the bar and you who must make the jump so best of luck. ☘️ 🤞

Re: Question on warm up.

The EF is pace and rate-prescribed—very controlled by design. Progression from low UT2 to TR power to a burst at race pace assures that even the warmup gets a warmup. :P Tried it years ago. Really disliked it, way to fast to my liking, sprintertype rowers will need 15 min to recover if not more. :w...

Re: Long & Low

The PM force curve measures acceleration of the flywheel so records nothing during recovery. Only the “drive portion” is shown. Max amplitude of curve established early sez explosive leg contribution. Very desirable artifact of good execution OTE. Not the whole story OTW. Drive length is of no conse...

Martin S writes: A 2k race WU of 7,5k is much more than I expected to be reasonable, I always have the fear to waste too much energy, but if Mike Caviston writes that many of his rowers had the same fear but were significantly faster at the end, that's something to be taken seriously.

Re: New to ERG/rowing. How does this 10,000m look?

Alrower, keep doing what you’re doing, if you were a newby prodigy we’d be advising you to slow down and focus on technique. The 10k in question looks like an all-in-one workout with a 2k warmup on the front. Each succeeding 2k is faster than the previous (negative splits). That’s the progression th...

Re: How often to re-test?

There is the option of submaximal effort 1750-1800 meters without the sprint. You can file that for use in the runup to a 2k comp—-the real test.
