Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Enjoy yourself out there Rod and give it your best shot. I hope you get what you want out of the trip. You seem to have really come on at the 5K/30mins+ sort of distance, but the 2K would appear fairly stubborn for you to lower significantly? Do you see that as a limitation of stroke power which can...

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

From memory, 1 min is already enough to get 95% back. 2 min is pretty long. If you would go close to max, longer rest may be usefull. Possibly for pure sprinters also. Who can dig very deep. Maybe try both? Will do. So with this session presumably the emphasis is on stroke power at more or less the...

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

Good work Paul, maybe do 100m reps? 10x 100 on 2 min. For stuff like this, maxspeed matters most, get that lower and you will be faster. A tiny bit belated :D but would it not make more sense to extend the rest bits to 3mins+ so the ATP-PC system recharges each time? From memory, 1 min is already e...

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

The folks there were real nice - and I think it's unfair for me to simply say LSU rowing team. I'm pretty sure they must have all been novices/new rowers. Young men that are over 6 feet should have done much better than I did if they were in any kind of shape. If that sounds harsh, maybe I'm just u...

Lance, thanks for sharing. Love hearing about (slightly) crazy stuff like this...

I noticed you have your fan behind you, obviously better than in front (that's where I have mine)? I'd have thought that'd give you backache like you get when sitting in a draft? Obviously completely different...

Re: Concerned about rowing as a grappler

I repeatedly hurt my lower back when I started erging but that was because I was frail from years and years of excessive cycling and to a lesser extent running (and because of advancing age). My engine was stronger than my chassis. Just doing erging eventually sorted it but in the last 6-12 months w...

Don't you just hate it when you exactly equal your PB?

Happened to me today on the 500m distance. Two months ago I set a time of 1:29.0 and was tying up in the last 100m or so IIRC and saw the average go from 1:28.4 to 1:29.0, after having treated it like the 1min effort i.e. max effort ALL the way and no pacing at all. This time I was sure I could get ...

Re: New rower need the right erg

Yeah Model D/E Concept2....absolute no brainer if you have the money. Go secondhand if you can as there are plenty around that are like new and people have quickly realised it's too much like hard work. #snowflakes And if you find it isn't for you, then sell it on and get your money back.

Re: Runner's High (or similar)

@stu - I've eschewed anything longer than 10K for a while now as am trying to re-invent myself as more power/strength focused (as a LWT). Now and then a long SS session does feel like "what I need" both mentally and physically but you are right in that there is more low haning fruit on the short stu...
