Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Did my contribution to the skierg challenge this morning.

Re: Skierg pb thread

Upped the meters, drop the pace on my 30 minute effort last night. 6767 meters, 38spm. Was a little sore this morning and had to forgo my 0500 6K on the erg. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Been plugging away the last months averaging about 55-60K per week between the rower and skierg. Did a 2K on the rower this morning followed by a 2K on the skierg, felt good despite having a bit of a cold. Decided to try a 2K for real, been at least 2 years, ended up with a current era PB of 7:34.0 ...

Re: Skierg pb thread

30 minute pb this past Thursday. Didn't plan on going for it. Started out at 2:18 for the first ten minutes, flet good so upped the pace.

Finished with 6653 meters. Same pace as my 6k. So time to drop the 6k pace next time.

Re: Skierg pb thread

Sort of an accidental 30 minute PB last night. Started out kind of slow and easy, saw that with about 6 minutes left my predicted finish was around 6575 meters or so. Last 3 minutes cranked it up to the predicted finish was just over 6600. Finished with 6603 meters. Don't remember the stroke rate. K...

Re: Struggling to improve!!

Going to have to agree with HJS. I'm the same size, going to be 56 on Sunday and even without training for a 2K I currently pull 1:55 splits. A few years ago I was doing upper 1:40s. At your age and the amount of training you're doing you should be at least in the 1:40s, since you're not maybe some ...

Re: how much stress do skiergs put on your knees?

I'm an avid cyclist and wanted to use the SkiErg for crosstraining. It does put pressure on knee. If you are not careful you can acquire chondromalacia. It also puts stress on your MCL and your patellar tendon. I would not recommend this for anyone with back problems. Anyone who does crunches knows...

Re: How many meters do you have this season and how are you doing on this season's goals?

I'm at 998,860 for the season. Planning an early morning (0400 :shock: ) 6K tomorrow so I'll climb over the 2 comma club. This is my first season tracking my meters.

Also, this is combined meters with the rower and skierg. I try to do at least 50K per week.

Re: Skierg pb thread

Nice one John. I hope to be able to do that when I get to that age.

New 2K PB tonight.

8:32.3 r48

I think I could've gone a little harder on the middle two 500s and broke 8:30. Oh well, next time.

Re: body gives up but brain wants to keep going

You should probably invest in a HR monitor. It could be your body shutting down because your aerobically gassed. Happens sometimes. It's happened to me on workouts at a pace that I've done before. Just that on any particular day, for whatever reason you're just not capable of the same aerobic capaci...

Re: New SkiErg Owner

After using it again today I can't see how you can even come close to hitting the support. I'd have to finish my stroke down around my toes in order to even have the potential of hitting the bar. How close do you stand to the tower? My feet are about shoulder width maybe a little narrower. But the w...
