Re: [In]decent Intervals

6 x 750m r20* on 2:30 rest this afternoon. The asterisk is because I'd planned to do the first 5 1/2 or so at roughly the same pace/rate, and then blast the last part of rep 6 in one of my trademark sprints. The one I wasn't able to unleash on Saturday. Here's what happened: https://imageshack.com/a...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Silver medal in the 60+ age group at BRIC on Saturday. A minor saga was involved, one whose details I will leave out of this Forum. The upshot was that I could not make anything close to a full-out race effort. I ended up rowing along at about 1:42 pace, as I recall, only to realize that I was in co...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Thanks. I had the worst mother farming workout today in the history of farming mothers. If I hadn't already bought the plane tickets and booked the hotel I wouldn't bother to come. That's not being disingenuous, it's being brutally candid. Somedays you eat the bear, somedays the bear eats you. -- Ru...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Been in BRIC tune-up mode the last couple of days. Revisited a 13 x 250m r32 on 30" rest workout yesterday evening. Resolved to hold something on the order of 1:36.7 pace for the first twelve and attack the last rep. Here's how it played out. As should be obvious from the graph, I'm getting better a...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

6 x 500m r20 on 1' on Thursday. Yesterday, another session in which I had a hard time deciding how I wanted to kill myself. Ended up settling on 12 x 250m r24 on 30" rest, negative splitted, which is loosely equivalent to a sustainable 2k at the same rating and constant pace. HR peaked at 171 bpm in...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

The formulas are all derived from statistical analysis of observed/reported results. They're not necessarily useless -- the basic idea is to use HR as a proxy for hard-to-measure-directly blood lactate levels as a proxy for intensity and design training schemes around how hard the continuously-monit...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

16 x 250m r32 on 50" rest tonight, sort of a ticking-over workout. I spent a good chunk of the day getting properly sized biometric pictures taken for a residency-permit application, plus arranging for a sworn + notarized translation of my marriage certificate. By the time I was done with that, plus...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

I attempted 6 x 500m on 1' yesterday by way of 2k prep. I couldn't get my head around rating 30 or 32 from the getgo, so after about six abortive tries I essayed a rating progression: r20/22/24/26/28/30. I got literally halfway through, as in something like 363m into the 4th 500 at 26 spm, when the ...

Ms. Nav, who is my erging conscience: "You didn't do a very long workout today. Was it intense?"

Re: [In]decent Intervals

30 x 250m r33 on 50" rest tonight. Cruised the first 14 and tried to treat the last 16 as a 2k predictor. My stroke-to-stroke consistency was pretty good throughout, as for example in the trademark fast last rep: https://imageshack.com/a/img924/1885/Wjp4v8.jpg 7500m total work distance in 24:14.1 ne...

Re: Short-term blood glucose effects of rowing

You should talk to your doctor/diabetes team about the possible after-effects of the exercise you're proposing to do. Everyone's case is different and individual.

Re: How to keep track of repetition averages?

ErgMonitor is limited by the amount of storage on your hard drive. A PM5 will store 50 interval reps or splits on a USB stick; ErgData will also store 50. The low-tech solution to more reps is a countdown timer set to whatever your rest interval is minus five seconds. Finish the last stroke of #30 o...

Re: Short-term blood glucose effects of rowing

Cheers, welcome back to the fraternity :-) You may already know this, but I'll repeat it anyway: the more regularity in your workouts the easier it will be to fit them into a glucose-management plan. By that I mean keeping the overall effort you put into them relatively constant; working out at roug...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Set out to do umpty by 250m r32 on 50" rest this afternoon. As I was finishing rep 6, the fire alarm in the gym went off. Fcuk. I grabbed my stuff and prepared to evacuate. Within two or three minutes it was evident that it was a false alarm. But I'd gotten up from the erg, broken the workout, and m...
