I had no idea how hard this would be. I figured I could get under 20min.
Well the important thing is you did it. Keep at it.

OK. You're both wrong (and partially right). First of all I agree with Ranger, technique is a huge part of erging. I watch people erging and 90% of them have huge improvements they should make. And usually these are people that have been rowing for a long time. The mistakes they make are being compo...

Nothing wrong with those times starting out. As most people will suggest, take a look at some technique videos to get the most out of your stroke. The sooner you do that the better so you don't develop bad habits. Bad habits are hard to break. As your technique and rowing specific fitness improves y...

@Paul: good workout. Sorry didn't look for you at Schuylkill. Only got in Sat afternoon. Had some tough racing on Sunday. Dissapointing 6th place finish in the single, but got first in the 4 racing with Pen AC. I was stroking a boat with a former olympian and national sculling champ. How were your r...

I have a huge problem bringing up the rating without bringing down the split.. Why on earth would you want to bring up the rating without bringing down the splits? A 28 is more than sufficient for a longer piece. Sure if you can get faster by going higher, then by all means do it. But otherwise why...

Head of the Chattanooga

am: Rowed the Open Single. Held 30-31 the whole way. 2nd place

pm: stroked the masters 8. We destroyed the masters competition by almost 3 minutes. Passed 3 collegiate boats and posted the 3rd fastest time of the day.

A good day!

12K OTW today. SS 20-23 spm. Rowing in a new Kaschper with fat blades. Felt good. I will use this combination in the race this weekend.

Had to stay away from the erg today. 30 miles on the bike. A refreshing change.

Hey ranger, If eight people can row together well (a much more impressive feat than rowing a single), then they will kick ass on their own. Sorry have to disagree with you here. Mastering the single IMO is harder than learning to row in an 8. I'll take 8 fast single rowers and put them together in ...

Greg,

Is this condition something you are going to be able to fully recover from or are you always going to have to watch your HR limits carefully? Nice to have you back posting

Well now our second week of banned rowing OTW due to the flooding in Atlanta. The ecoli measurements are 43 time higher than normal. So that has forced me to the erg and yes to read and participate in some of these inane postings. But I digress. Today's 6K piece:
