Re: [In]decent Intervals

30' sessions on the ErgBike the last several days. Today was 16672m, which if I'd set it up as a stand-alone trial would be the second best result for the age group in the short history of bike erging. The only better result is my 2018 trial which just got over 16700m. Meh.

Re: [In]decent Intervals

5/14: 8 x 500m r24 on 2' rest. Meh. Fairly decent last rep, but meh. I am trying to coax ErgMonitor into running on a Windows 10 laptop, so far with no success....

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Couple of days in there dinking around with the Team Oarsome May Challenge. Nothing worth reporting. I also took two days off on account of having stepped on a needle and buried it about an inch into my heel. The thing there is that I have serious neuropathy (loss of feeling) in my feet on account o...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Deployed the BikeErg for the first time here in Poland. It took me a while to get going, as I had to update the firmware and run through a full calibration sequence. I essayed an hour: 32,622m, 1:50.3 pace, 260 watts. Verified and ranked. To the best of my knowledge there aren't any official BikeErg...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

TO Challenge take two. This time r24. I took some slack out of the bungee cord beforehand. It seemed to help the 'feel'....

Re: [In]decent Intervals

May team Oarsome challenge just now: 8 x 45" on 45" rest. I did them r20, although there's no rate restriction in the challenge:

Re: [In]decent Intervals

First semblance of a proper workout in nearly 3 weeks. Never move house. 13 x 1' r30 on 1', negative splitted starting at 300m/1:40.0 pace. 1:36.7 average. My new erg room is the terrace/deck outside our apartment. It's up on the 17th floor and objectively is a great place for a workout provided it'...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

On the 2% chance that anyone wonders where I've been: we're moving into a new flat in Wroclaw and I've been putting in 10-12 hr days dealing with that. Deliveries, unpacking, packing, and [of course] the dreaded, deadly Ikea runs.... I have received [finally] my trusty Model D and my BikeErg from th...

Re: Drive length and stroke rate question

Dunno why but the board seems to have triple-posted my response. Sorry for that....

I can edit this last response but can't delete one of the earlier ones.

Re: Drive length and stroke rate question

In general, no. Stroke length tends to exhibit mild variability depending on rating both on the erg and in a boat. Here's Australian-based sports scientist Valery Kleshnev on the topic, summarizing empirical data collected by another well-known rowing boffin, Volker Nolte: Drive length is defined a...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

4/8 36 road miles on the Specialized, plus 1500m r20 for the CTC in 5:12.9/ 1:44.3 pace. 4/9 Team Oarsome Challenge: 4 x 750m on 3', r 24/26/28/30. My idea was to try to do them all at 1:40 pace, effectively trading rate for pace systematically. https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img924/7499/1jPccy.jpg...

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

No decision on Ms. Roebuck? Ms Roebuck's records have also been removed pending any further information or proof from her regarding those records. Also @wjschmidt2, please keep in mind that different people use the logbook in different ways. Lifetime Meters do not indicate a person's ability to set...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

4/3 was 30 x 1' r20 on 30" in 1:47.2 average pace. 4/4 was a rest day 4/5 I did 8 x 500m r24 on 2', the idea being to do the first 7 at around 1:44.5 pace and then kill rep #8. I averaged 1:42.9, with rep 8 in 1:35.7 (couldn't hold the 1:34.6 that I was for 3/4 of it). 4/6 I did 1 x Ikea visit with ...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

3/31, 4/1, 4/2 long outdoor cycle rides on my Specialized to take advantage of the advent of spring here in Wroclaw. All three days I did variations on a round-the-central-city loop, averaging about 26 miles each time out. The flowering trees are all blooming, particularly along the paths parallelin...
