Re: Forum Flyers

Now that the FTC is over, I turned my attention to the October CTC - a good anaerobic workout!. Managed to accumulate 0 rest meters so no math challenges for me. I imagine that several of us were waiting to finish up the FTC before attempting the CTC - my row floated boat I. We have two other boats...

Re: Forum Flyers

Congrats to Jim S, Harry the Hamster, and all the 10-15k per day rowers for putting up the big numbers🙏. A body do get weary doing that!😩 As for those with a healthy respect for mens sana in corpore sana , rest assured that taking a day off occasionally is equally commendable. :wink: :wink: @ ARG: I...

Re: C2 Model D - Chain making ratcheting noise

I see no mention of chainslip in original posting or thereafter when queried about presence of same. If the OP experienced chain running out the hawspipe due to the 1 way clutch pawls not engaging fully, I bet he would mention it. All we got is a ratcheting sound but no disconcerting giving way of t...

Re: ISS Interactive Plan Errors, Inconsistencies, and Oddities

The chief virtue shared by the O’Neill material and the Indoor Sports adaptation is prescriptive demarkation of training zones. Whatever the observed vagaries of both accretion and reduction in the Interactives, the fatal defect of both is failure to identify lactate thresholds/inflection points by ...

Re: I am apparently am doing something wrong

Personally I think you don’t have to look beyond Mike Caviston’s advice - in short start each 500m piece 5’ after the preceding one, with active recovery. Or in full, ‘ RECOVERY BETWEEN PIECES. This is another topic that in my opinion gets more discussion than it deserves. .......That means do a 50...

Pull up on the tip of the perforated tongue while imparting a strong floorward tug and side to side wiggle to footplate grasped near the heel stop.

Re: I am apparently am doing something wrong

All at once, one after the other with anything from a 2 min rest to 3 min in between. I think some people have mentioned 3.30 rest as well. Opinions on the rest period would be good. Do the 8x500m on 3:30 rest as per Pete “Lunchtime’ plan. That’s for high quality execution meaning emphasis on going...
