Re: Noob technique critique request

As the 21-22 minutes was for 5K you are in a good place to start. I am a relative newbie so I can share what helped me the most. Don’t over think it in terms of pace and watts. Getting more meters consistently matters the most. Work on getting same speed with lower rate. Doing this will naturally fi...

Re: Beginner Dragonboater ERG Questions

Note how HJS tells you to use 90% power. It is not 90% of your max sprint effort (low pull, uours was 400w) but 90% conpared to your max effort ”on that distance”. You cannot tell someone to run 1 minute at 90% of their 100m dash effort and repeat with 1 minute rest for seceral reps. It is obviously...

Re: Beginner here!n

I think this is a great video for technique. I would take the overlapping of legs, back & arms with grain of salt as it is easier for beginners to keep track of stroke elements when they are more defined.
The stuff on catch is great though.

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

You are right about the sig. (edit: it had my older 7:12.x time) that time is from July or August. I did 7.04 little over a week ago as a test for yesterday’s time trial. Originally my plan was to go to FIRC (Finnish IRC). The level of competition in past years has not been too high and sub 7:00 wou...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

2K, 6:58.9

It’s been almost an hour and I am freezing and feel sick still. Quite succesfull max effort. Felt and feel like crap. Didn’t have much sprint in me. Last 4 pulls started to fade.
Was able to keep 30-31 rate.

Very happy as 7 min is a big deal for unfit daddy-bod like me.

Re: Using Paul's Law to predict my 2K race pace

I think it is common to start with a little bit of extra oomph. I have not found science to prove that the short term energy reserves would be best used by fast start - but many seem to do this. Ie. first split is relatively fast because of faster 10-20 strokes right at the start. Equally last split...

Re: Ramp test on C2 - like Wattbike

The benefit of ramp test over fixed time or distance that it takes out race planing. A 30min test (or 4 min) can give worse result than true potential if the piece is paced too concervatively ir optimistically.

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

@ David, congrats indeed. 6:50(ish) is athlete territory @ Gammo, yeah I am still in the noobie gains territory where mistakes are big and fixes give big improvements. Also myvtraining has been kind if broken, Oct-Dec only trained a little and before that only 2-3 months really. So with consistent t...

Re: Using Paul's Law to predict my 2K race pace

I find this great.

I do not get the idea of (near) max effort start. Physics says it is not ideal. Still the video is good.

Re: Using Paul's Law to predict my 2K race pace

I have to agree. And saying that the differences are small, only four seconds (!) going something like 1:40 for first 500 and 1:44 the third is beyond weird to me.

And my 500m times would put me on the 6:40 group which is ridiculous idea.
