Re: What Skierg training are you doing?

Have to say, there's something to be said about dedicating to one primary activity. Maybe adderal would help?

Waiting on the arrival any day of a new racing canoe, a Spencer Extreme. Will practice on milder waters a few times before taking it out on the big (meaner) rivers.

Re: What Skierg training are you doing?

Sounds like a good workout to me! John, what percentage, if any, do you row as compared to skierg? Guessing mine is 40 / 40 / 20 between rowing, skierg and paddle erg. Does not include my running, which needs to increase. Would love to get out on the water more but rivers (Missouri & Mississippi) ar...

Re: Skierg pb thread

New 60 minute PB this morning, the first time I've done it. My goal was to stay right on 2:23 pace, and go faster the last 12 minutes. I warmed up for 15 minutes, took my shirt off for the time trial, and did a 15 minute warm down. 60' 12656m 2:22.2 40 187 😃 12:00 2518 2:22.9 41 171 24:00 2517 2:23...

Re: What Skierg training are you doing?

Couple of easy erg days after canoeing Sunday on the Missouri River. Water is WAY too cold to dump in this time of year, was careful (and a little slow) since I was solo on this one. Let the paddle season begin :D ! Just 30 minutes on the skierg this morning but always feels better to get a session ...

Re: LUNA-TICS TEAM ROOM: Year-round "Looney" fun.

Yeah, am sore in spots that I forget existed. Didn't drown or dump, which was a challenge at times. MO River is way too cold to be taking a dip right now! Need a couple of easy days to just loosen up shoulder and elbows...

Re: What Skierg training are you doing?

Finally got in a half-marathon over the weekend, was feeling like a slug just reading about everyone else's achievements. Purposely took a different approach, setting a PW (personal worst) by about 10 seconds. With recent rt shoulder issues, knew that was one way to measure whether I had taken it ea...

Re: Skierg pb thread

My goal this morning was a 2k under 9:04, with splits of 2:16, 16, 15 and < 13. The first 1k wasn't feeling too good and I wasn't quite sure about finishing, but then was feeling better and had a good finish. The result is a new 2k PB of 9:02.3, minus 5.5 seconds but not quite under 9 minutes. I'm ...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Congratulations Paul. I was watching for your 10k. You paced yourself well and did great. Periodically moving my feet, changing my form and position helps me to keep loose and relaxed. My mouth was dry warming up, but sucking on a date for a few minutes helped the dryness disappear. Last night I di...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Great work John! Steve- I have rotator cuff issues. My orthopedic told me "no overhead lifting". Haven't had any serious issues since I stopped doing overhead presses. You're right, Kini, I should not be lifting overhead. Occasionally need to rooftop a heavier canoe or kayak, so gets me once in awh...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Steve, thanks much for your generous compliment. :D What issue are you having with your shoulder, and how's the recovery coming? John, you continue to smash records :o and by almost 5 seconds! Will be surprised if the 2000 doesn't follow. Regarding my rt. shoulder, very old rotator cuff tear that w...
