Re: [In]decent Intervals

2/20 was 60' on the TechnoGym recumbent cycle at a nominal 327 watts. I have no real idea how accurate the watt calculation is -- many gym cycles notoriously overestimate the work being done, but IIRC TechnoGym claims +/- 2% accuracy for this piece of kit. Assuming for the purposes of argument that ...

Re: 2K Test and falling heart rate

I agree that for peace of mind, if nothing else, you absolutely should consult a trained physiologist and/or cardiac specialist. Keep in mind that HR on an erg is affected by a number of things including subtle changes in posture. It may be that you're doing something different posture-wise (or for ...

Re: World Rowing Indoor Championships

AFAIK the heat sheet hasn't yet been generated. Regatta Central is handling the registration, etc. Its home page for the event says that a schedule + erg assignments was supposed to be available approximately 2/15. I have no firm idea why it doesn't seem to have been posted yet. However I suspect it...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

20 x 1' r28 on 30 seconds' rest today, looking to up the volume a bit:

I added 30 minutes on the TechnoGym recumbent cycle at a nominal 325 watts. HR was remarkably docile, considering the erg session that had come before the ride....

Re: 2019 Crash-Bs -- New 60+ MHW 2k WR

And I see no reason whatsoever that Masters OTW rowing categories somehow "need" to supersede the C2 record categories. It looks from my perspective like FISA simply imposing itself without consideration of the practical consequences. And I would add that the change certainly wasn't adopted after an...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

1' r28 on 30" rest again, this time 13 reps with the first 12 targeting around 1:40.5 pace and then boom:

Re: 2019 Crash-Bs -- New 60+ MHW 2k WR

FISA and/or the race organizers in LB decided that the age categories for masters don't depend on birthdays: Competition age for all competitors is based on the current calendar year, i.e. age as of December 31, 2019. This rather bizarre rule change affects people like my good friend Steve who are i...

Re: 2019 Crash-Bs -- New 60+ MHW 2k WR

On the other hand, Long Beach is four time zones away in terms of travel and the event is just a week after what obviously was an all-out effort. I hope he does go faster there, but I wouldn't be too surprised if he doesn't. A few of us will have a chance to do something about the 65+ record before ...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

14 x 1' r28 on 30" rest this afternoon, the idea being to do 13 at around 1:42.5 pace and then boom. Result: https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1024x768q90/923/48VOcc.jpg I added 30' on the Technogym recumbent cycle at a nominal 327 watts, cadence 52, plus some quality steam room time.

US Para rowing coach Tom Darling just smashed one of the oldest 2k records on the books, set by the great Paul Hendershott back in 2004....

A bit of a struggle down the stretch, but he held on and did it. Well done!

Re: [In]decent Intervals

2/15 Opera tickets last night (Don Giovanni; 12th row main floor) so not much time for a big workout. Okay then, let's do intense....' 6 x 1' rate ladder on 1 min rest, done r20/ 22/ 24/ 26/ 28/ 30. Last time around on this (Feb 5) I managed 1:38.8 pace. Today I was considerably faster on the lower-...
