Re: [In]decent Intervals

7/17. Rather heroic 30 x 1' r24 on 1', aiming for consistency. 29 reps at 295m 1:41.6 pace; fast last at 317m 1:34.6 pace. 8876m total work distance, 1:41.3 average pace.

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Haven't posted in a bit, due mainly to problems with the keyboard on the old laptop I normally use for rowing-related stuff. I think that cat fur under the keys is the cause. Unfortunately I can't seem to clean enough of it out to get everything working. I've solved the problem with an external USB ...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img921/1051/AllEpH.jpg Annoyed by my complacency re my BikeErg Sprints result (2nd in the age group; I could have gone again but I mistakenly thought my time would hold up). I took it out on the BikeErg today in a 60 min session. I broke the previous all-time best ra...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

40 x 250m r31 just now on 50 secs semi-active rest (i.e. light paddle after 20-30 seconds of passive rest). https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img923/2631/30fVaU.jpg I'm not sure I trust the HR data for the last 10 reps or so -- it's awfully flat..... OTOH it was quite breezy intermittently during the ...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img924/7588/RT3FoF.jpg The rather odd total of 25 x 250m r24 on 1' yesterday. I'd been planning to take advantage of the cool weather and do 40 reps. However I was running ErgData and my phone announced during rep 25 that I was down to 14% battery capacity. Since tha...

Re: BIKEERG programme for Crossfit? :)

As a general rule of thumb, distances on the rowing erg equate to twice the distance on the BikeErg. For example, a 2000m piece on the rower is roughly the same grunt-wise as a 4000m piece on the bike. You should be able to take a cross-fit program designed for the rower and simply double all the di...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Erg workouts the last several days. Nothing special to report, except that yesterday I did 12 x 500m r24 on 2' in 1:41.7 pace. The first 11 were about 1:42.7 or so and #12 was 1:29.1. Today I obliterated the previous ranked best for 4000m / 60-69 MHW on the Bike Erg. The previous best had been 6:45....

Re: "Seiler" Intervals

If you're using % of MHR to set the parameters of your intervals, bear in mind that posture affects HR during exercise. It's typically lower in rowing than it is when cycling, largely because more of you is upright in a normal cycling position and your heart is working harder against gravity. How mu...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

37C air temperature here yesterday afternoon. I had delusions of an hour steady-state piece. I bailed after 12 minutes. Plan B was some sprinty work on the BikeErg, not least because I could rehydrate and towel off during the intervals. 20 x 300m on 1 min: https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img922/8566...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Took a few days off to go up to Poznan and spectate at the FISA World Cup II regatta. Met Steve Redgrave, among many others, came back inspired.... Back on the erg the last few days despite the heat/humidity. This was yesterday: 12 x 500m r24 on 2', with a fast last rep.... https://imagizer.imagesha...

Re: MHR question

There's no need for you to do a maximum hr test. Max will be whatever you can push it to on the day, and will vary somewhat depending on the details of the test you're using, your hydration levels, ambient conditions in the test area, sleep levels, what you had to eat at your last meal, your willpow...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

22 miles on the road on my Specialized yesterday.
Hot as blazes.
8 x 500m r30 tonight on 2' rest, just ahead of a thunderstorm. It was extremely humid so I was circumspect....

Okay, there was a trademark fast last rep....

Re: [In]decent Intervals

CTC/TO Challenge this afternoon. First time on the erg in over a week, thanks to having fooked my back on an earlier attempt. Thought I would take things conservative. Dropped the drag, restricted the rating, forced myself to hydrate with a reduced glucose isotonic drink every two reps whether or no...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

16805m in 30;00.0 on the BikeErg this afternoon, ranked and verified. Beats the old 60-69 best half hour result (which was mine, last fall) by 101 m. Couldn't quite hold 1:47 flat, maybe next time out.

30 internal storage. 50 on ErgData or if you're storing results on a USB thumb drive.
