Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

https://dgtzuqphqg23d.cloudfront.net/sq9qUQlLf9yfEmg42kYLlb9mkXtrf5ZyYEs1FQ5BVck-768x512.jpg I've been away from the rower for a bit. Been doing lunch 5k jogs to enjoy the weather and get some vitamin d. The lunch run really helps reduce the stress of the work day. Forgot my shorts for my lunch run...

Re: FMMC Participation Certificates

#FMMC 2018-19 Certificates I emailed out all of the certificates for completing the FMMC last night - but a lot of them bounced back. So I've uploaded them to a Google Drive for you to download. Go to https://bit.ly/2WuymNB to get yours. If you don't know what your final placing was (this is the or...

Re: Transcendental Meditation

"Transcendental" is a style of meditation - focusing on and silently repeating a phrase. That said - I like the idea of focusing on breathing or rhythm and zoning out of external distractions - I'll try it with eyes closed. Sounds like it might be a winner. I have definitely done a 45 minute row wi...

Re: Searching across seasons in online logbook?

Currently I think the only way you can really do that, is to export all of your seasons to an excel sheet, combine them together yourself (Copy paste is how I do it, I'm not an excel wiz, but I'm sure there are some other ways to combine the spreadsheets), and filter through that way. Maybe someone ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

First real jog of the season during my lunch break at work... Might get an hour in on the erg later tonight. 3.5 Miles, 10:43 pace. Not a bad first jog for the season... But my heart rate averaged 184 the entire time. Maxed out at 193 fairly quickly and had to dial back. I apparently don't like the ...

Re: Will a model D fit in an Elantra?

I agree that it will most likely fit, the front legs being the closest thing to 'worrisome' as mentioned by Ombrax, but if you bring the tool for that, you'll be all set. This thing goes together and breaks apart very easily.

Congrats on the good find!

Re: Tenshuu's Trials

Steady state plan lasted about 15 minutes then I wanted to get at it for some reason. I think it's excess energy and work stress starting to really ramp up, have to push hard to clear the mind.

Re: Rowing in Zwift - suggestion to make it happen

If I remember correctly, part of the problem witch matching Rowers with Bikes in Zwift, is the way the power is calculated, as you mentioned cycling is continuous, whereas rowing is intermittent. I believe when Zwift reads a stroke on the erg, the power output is kept constant from the pull, rather ...

Re: Getting enough sleep for gains

Anybody have some 'nap routines' they use to idle their mind/body to prepare for a nap? There's all the usual stuff such as make the room as dark as possible, use ear plugs, cool body temperature, turn off electronics before/during, reduce blue light, don't have a massive meal prior to going to bed...

Re: Tenshuu's Trials

A lot of the HM is in your head and fighting through the inevitable tough moments. I'd start at 2:07 and see how you feel as a five second increase on PB is going to be really hard. I'd do 2 x 10k rather than 4 x 5k as three rest periods will not simulate closely enough when compared to one short r...

Re: Tenshuu's Trials

That's an impressive increase in 10k PB. Well done Thank! Trying to find my comfort zone for higher intensities during longer rows. The 2k could have been a few seconds faster, but I told myself I have to stick to the plan or else I'll fatigue before I finish the full 45 minutes. Also think I need ...

Re: Tenshuu's Trials

Been really enjoying higher intensity lately, may I say, a change of pace? =D. Goal was each 9 minute split, slow down by 5s/500m, starting at 1:55. Failed to hold 2:00, so forced a gameplan to make up for it. This was free rate, no way to do it otherwise.... I hit 2k at 7:40. 10k @ 41:30 Pretty sur...

Re: Getting enough sleep for gains

I will further this question - Is napping just a person-by person basis in terms of being easy to do? I hardly ever feel like I need a nap during the day, unless I'm actually struck with illness, or have taken a benadryl. Otherwise taking a nap seems difficult, I can't ever seem to relax all of my b...
