Re: [In]decent Intervals

Meh last 3 weeks. Lockdown has continued, pretty much, and I've pretty much stayed on the ErgBike rather than the rower. Weather has played a role in that as well: for some perverse reason, days when I've scheduled rower workouts have turned out to be too windy/rainy/punctuated by lightning to work ...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Meh last two weeks. I managed to get up to 100 x 30"/30" on the BikeErg on 5/16, the first 50 at 1:38.5 pace and the last 50 at 1:34.7 pace (average 1:36.6 pace); somewhere in there (5/14) I also tried for an OCD workout and managed 57 consecutive 30" reps at 1:39.6 pace out of a 66-rep session.... ...

Re: WRIC goes Virtual

To add to the previous couple of posts: FISA and C2 between them also need to come to some understanding regarding possible world records. At the moment, "All static indoor rower 2000 meter record-breaking times must be rowed at a Concept2 sanctioned indoor rowing event with witnesses present." My u...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Still in lockdown mode here in Poland, and likely to be that way for the forseeable future. If it ever warms up, stops raining, and the wind dies down, I will be able to take the cover off the rowing erg on the balcony and resume training on that. Meanwhile I continue to work out on the ErgBike. For...

Re: WRIC goes Virtual

One of the problems with live, virtual racing is simultaneity. When it's (say) 10 am in London, it's 9 pm in New Zealand, 5 am in New York, and 2 am in Los Angeles. I don't see any way to find start times that 'work' equitably for everyone. If everybody in the final for a given classification goes h...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

What has degenerated into a weekly update: https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img924/326/U6cc5B.jpg I have just taken roughly 5 minutes off the previous BikeErg age-group 100,000m best. That had been Emanuele Romoli's 3:20:10.2, set in Trento, Italy on June 4, 2018. It is now 3:15:22.1, set in Wrocław,...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Same old same old. I did manage to get 50 x 500m on 30" rest on the BikeErg down to 1:36.9 average pace a couple of days ago. And I have switched over, at least in the short term, to longer base-building rides. I've posted this elsewhere, but it deserves maximum exposure: https://www.thelancet.com/j...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Yesterday I managed 16 x 500m reps on 30" on the BikeErg at 1:34.4 pace. Today was a rather gonzo 50 x 500m reps on 30" on the BikeErg at 1:39.2 pace overall. I negative splitted the last 16, which came out at an average 1:38.0 pace -- slightly under my unofficial age group 4k record pace. https://i...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Still locked down, with no sign of when things might start to relax a bit. At least this week is forecast to be significantly warmer, and I ought to be able to get back on the rowing erg on the balcony by Wednesday or so. Yesterday was 30 x 500m on 30" on the BikeErg, negative-splitting them down fr...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Like the rest of the world, I've been hanging in there and trying to adjust to lockdown/isolation measures. Where I am in Wroclaw is pretty much buttoned up for the forseeable future, among other things meaning that gyms are shuttered along with most everything else. The authorities also have booted...

Re: Viral Risks with Exercise

The short answer is that there is no consensus regarding the possible negative effects of exercise on the immune system. It's generally complicated, not least because it's really really difficult to control for things like nutrition and post-workout activity and sleep. Moreover, no one knows enough ...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Like everyone else on the planet ought to be, I've been preoccupied recently with coronavirus issues. Not only are there practical issues (e.g. restrictions, closings, etc.) to deal with, in my case there's a real problem with risk. Diabetics and others with compromised immune and/or circulatory sys...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Haven't posted in a while -- been caught up for the last week and a half or so in scrambling to deal with coronavirus. Poland has instituted a number of prophylactic measures, including shutting the schools and universities; postponing or canceling concerts; and aggressively isolating businesses, et...
