Re: Forum Flyers

I am rowing a bit but have held off joining as I'm very unlikely to complete every month. If you can't find anyone I would be happy to join again.

Re: How a C2 actually measures energy expenditure

If you have access to the ergs they used have a quick look in the memory. Certainly on a pm5 it will show stroke rate and calories generated for the one minute row.

Re: 7 Weeks to Go

Excellent advice from Henry. Especially the pacing, going in knowing how you are going to pace the 2k particularly the start is essential. I picked up three places in the last 500m of my race not by going faster but by holding my pace while others faded after pulling sub 1:45 opening 500's compared ...

Re: Forum Flyers

In 2016 I did four rounds of the Pete plan on the run up to BRIC. For me that was too much, and at the BRIC I was 6 seconds down on my pb a month before. In 2017 I tended to do 45 minutes at 2:07 three or four times a week along with various c2ct etc, but very little does work. A month before i impr...

Re: New member just completed first 5000m

I often row at a gym and apart from myself I only see one or two 5k's a month. I don't remember anyone apart from me rowing further than that. Oh and on the erg I normally use the average pace is around 2:30/500 which as I put half the meters on it around 2:06 shows most people row very slowly.... S...

Re: Ergstick and PM5

PM5 has built in Bluetooth and ANT+ so no need for that stick.
The PM4 only has ANT+

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Last training of the year, and I had run out of excuses to not do a HM. (I am a member of a FB group for LWT's that run a different challenge every month and December is a HM) So a HM was done this morning, wanted to get under 90 minutes, so had to beat 2:08 pace. Happy with a 1:28:26.9 so well unde...

Re: Ergdata, LG Nexus 5X and Wahoo Tickr

If you are using a pm5 them I find connecting the wahoo first to the pm5 via ant+ and then connecting erg data to my android phone works perfectly every time.

Re: Lots of rowing = No weight loss: Help!

You are trying to train yourself to perform better. Don't take the carb gels they are rubbish just finish the training at the pace you can, next time start slightly slower.
