Re: Rowing & Running Fitness

Coming back to your previous post about the Skierg, I did think about it, as I love cross-country skiing, but two things put me off i) the cost and ii) it seems to be even more potentially boring than rowing, as you're staring at a wall. I'd love to try one in a gym, but they are hard to find. Hobb...

Re: Repetition / interval limit on Pm5 monitor?

It's 50. I wanted to do 7-8k cruise, so set up 100m intervals, 20s rest and went. At 50 (5k + 2k+) got a message on PM saying that's that. Nothing budged, even if I pulled, til I pressed Menu. Now can see all 50 on PM. 50 reps with just the Pm5? That's awesome, exactly what I want to do. :D Thanks ...

Repetition / interval limit on Pm5 monitor?

What is the repetition / interval limit on the Pm5 monitor? I thought it was 30,
but found nothing about this on the C2 website, and the only comment I found stated 50.
Please clarify, and also what happens when the limit is reached, does the monitor simply stop?

Re: Training slump... it finally happened to me... :(

The funny thing is I seem to be wired for monotony as I am still not bored, Only done 4.2m metres though so maybe it will come but it's all I do for exercise at present and I'm still enjoying it. Mind you, I've had the same sandwich for lunch for about 10 years and not bored of that either. I like ...

Re: Training slump... it finally happened to me... :(

What would you like to accomplish? Why are you training? What would you like to do? See how many goals you can write down for the season and beyond. Suggestion: compare your times with the previous season and your current division, instead of your all time PBs. Pick certain events that you'd like to...

Re: Low resting heaet rate

Yes, you have a serious problem.

But fortunately there's an easy solution. Just call and cancel the appointment.

Re: PM5 - Wattage smoothened

I tried watts for starts this morning, and they were jumping all over the place.
They appeared to be delayed, and then would jump way up.
After I finished a start and took a few easy strokes, the watts jumped up 30 points higher.
They are neither accurate nor reliable, so I won't use them again.

Re: Concept 2 users.

I'm 5'8 and used to put my feet on the floor when adjusting the monitor, which worked fine.
However, the rowing machine and monitor were definitely designed for big people with long limbs.

You might also consider the Skierg, as the double poling movement at higher ratings is a much better exercise.

Re: 6 months stuck - need some help

After the work I am rowing and then i eat my dinner so it´s also rowing on empty stomach. I do the same thing except exercise in the mornings, then shower and eat my OMAD, due to that being when I'm the most hungry. Before exercise I drink plenty of water and also through the day, perhaps laced wit...

Re: 6 months stuck - need some help

If you record your workouts in the log book, you can keep track of your meters, and enter your times for the various distances in the rankings.

Re: 6 months stuck - need some help

I started OMAD two weeks ago and it's working pretty good, so I'm curious how you did it. Personally, any time I'm trying to lose weight, it's all about portion control. I measure and weigh the food that I eat which, since I eat about the same things every day, is not all that difficult. Since I fee...

Re: Marathon Complete

Congratulations for doing your marathon, and welcome to the forum. :D
You can enter your marathon in the rankings from your log book, and the same for the Skierg annual meters board.
C2 does offer various pins and certificates on the Challenges page, but I'm not sure what they are.

Re: Skierg pb thread

Kini, that's impressive. You kept getting faster and smashed your previous PB / s.
You must be doing all the right things in training. 😃
