Re: US Rowing Nationals (CRASH-Bs) 2020

Rick, nice talking to you on Sunday. I always look forward to your write-ups.

I love seeing Luanne Mills and Mari Friend in Boston. We also see them yearly at Ergomania in Seattle and they set a great example.

Re: 2020 National Championship (USA)?

I'm trying to book a room at the Royal Sonesta for the CRASH-Bs based on the hotel link here: http://www.crash-b.org/regatta/travel/.
But the Group Code seems to be incorrect. Has anyone else had this problem? Solved it?

Re: Optimum split pacing ?

Hey Nav. I'll take you up on that. But I'd like to change the terms a bit... you make the attempt and I'll donate the money. 8-) You can donate, too, if you want.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

2 hours on the ErgBike. It was supposed to be 60%-65% HRR which is a pace of about 2:02. However, I have trouble constraining my enthusiasm if I'm not actually wearing the HR monitor.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

10k with same target SPM as yesterday: 20, 24, 22, 26, 24. However, I was strapped in. Also, I pushed the last 250m to go sub 44. I think I'll set a goal of doing a sub 40. I was close years ago when I used a C2 in the gym. 10,000m 40:35.7 2:01.7 480 of 909 47th 08/20/04 33 Well done. The goal is e...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Yep. Danny Graham (fellow Team Oarsome member) hold the current British HM record for 40-49 (1hr 13m) and his HR for a recent 10km 1:50pace r20 was circa 120 and he thinks his max is circa 168. Mind-bogglingly low for a 1:50 pace imo About 10 years ago I was watching coverage of the TdF on TV and t...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Hopefully none of you will have a mini slump like I did recently. It seems quite common with ergers after a big significant achievement, which seemed counter intuitive to me before it actually happened. In my head the buzz of achievement would just spur me onwards and upwards. I think it is common ...

My wife is interested in the BikeErg, myself a SkiErg, there's only one way to find out... Initial opinions of the BikeErg? So far I'm happy with it but I do have two complaints. 1) When I'm really going sweat drips onto the flywheel cage, and 2) when the damper is all the way down, a cadence of 90...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

First two rides on the new BikeErg: Yesterday: 30', 16633 meters, 276 watts, 89 rpm. For the first couple of minutes the pace seemed reasonable, however, it didn't take long for me to realize that this was harder than I expected and by the end my HR had hit 173 (max of 175-176, maybe). Since my plan...
