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...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

3/28 I had the best of intentions as far as doing a longer erg workout, but discovered on rep 7 that my phone (running ErgData) was approaching 5% battery capacity and about to start shutting down apps. I'd been doing 250m reps r32 on 1 minute at about 1:34.8 pace or so. I did rep 8 in 1:24.0 pace r...

I added 30' on the Technogym recumbent at a modest 318w and some leg weights. Meh.

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Reversion to first principles. 8 x 500m r30 on 2' rest. Mildly negative splitted and then boom on the last rep. Resting HR this morning was 58 bpm, blood pressure 119/63. Per an impedence test at the gym I am 19.4% body fat. If so I have a fat free body mass index of something like 25.6 and a normal...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Broke yet another erg yesterday. This one was the u-shaped brass ferrule that helps attach the handle to the chain It broke in two a third of the way through the third 666m piece in another attempt at the CTC. There's no mechanical reason why the part needs to be there, and once I'd figured out what...

Re: Prizes and manipulation

I don't believe that people are taking performance enhancers to win monthly challenge t-shirts or certificates. But I do believe that rapidly increasing numbers of people who are or have been recently on such substances are entering logbook times/distances and populating virtual competitions like th...

Re: Prizes and manipulation

Related issues worth a mention here: doping/PEDs, which I fear are rapidly becoming rampant in the short sprints; and the unavoidable honor system for LWs weight compliance. Neither do people generally have to provide proof of identity when registering for events or leaderboards. Thus there is at le...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

3/22 Team Oarsome March Challenge -- 1k. I did it r20 per the PM5, r21 per ErgData. Dividing factual elapsed time by factual stroke count, rating works out to 20.47 spm (which in a normal world should round off to 20). https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img922/8578/mqnpM8.jpg I can assure you that this...
