Re: Focusing on the PM and your pace vs not watching and/or letting your mind wander

I don't find it challenging psychologically to be constantly tracking the pace and SPM, it gives me something to focus on. Yep same here! Mostly i focus on having a consistent pace each stroke and will generally have a quick glance of the SPM of each stroke after the pace reading of the stroke. The...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Back on the erg today... and the elbow held up fine WOO HOO :D It felt a little awkward in the beginning, as i tried to not put too much strain on it as i pulled the handle into the finish. But after 10mins i felt confident enough to row without worry about it anymore. Really chuffed to be back on i...

Re: New erg feeling DF

I purchased my Model D/PM5 in January. Manufacture date 10/2018. The DF on 5 is 106. Everything is clean and there was no change last time I oiled the chain. I've seen a few reports of low DF and slow place readings on new ergs. Maybe something has changed recently? Unfortunately, I don't have anyt...

Re: Focusing on the PM and your pace vs not watching and/or letting your mind wander

In general though, most ergers do not go easy, you seldom see people using a conversation pace. I never do This in a nutshell for me!!! When i get on that erg i like to feel i've actually done a workout. I tried rowing at conversation pace and got bored to tears after about 5mins. Not for me thanks...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Found a way to do some training around my elbow injury. MB this morning. 2x100 squats. 20mins core work. 6x35-30-30-30-30-30 pushups. I thought the pushups might affect the elbow but it's not causing any issue on any pushing motions... it's when i do anything in a pulling motion it sets it off. Bloo...

Re: Training and smoking?

Why not just row more meters to counteract the weight gainz :idea: Im already at 15k 6 days a week, aswell as some other training commitments/work/homelife id struggle to find the time to get in the gym...not an excuse but its the reality. Im sure i'll squeeze extra in where i can if the weight cli...

Re: Training and smoking?

Appreciate all replies, its been a bit of a reality check for me. I had hoped the prospect of better PB's would be a motivation...i see that was a little silly now and on reflection there are far more important factors regardless of better times...which i was aware of but perhaps an element of self...

Re: New erg feeling DF

Bungee cord can be different, but even that does not slow you down. Isn't that Slidewinder's cue to jump in? ;) I hope not haha. Gotta be honest tho... my latest sessions on my erg i noticed it was easier to go 2:02-03 pace than usual, + my usual r21-22. Now, is that down to me getting fitter, or m...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

@Anth thanks and hope your elbow feels better soon. I did have aggravated elbows and I trained through the pain, admittedly they weren't anywhere near as bad as yours sound so it sounds like you should be careful Cheers mate! Yeah i'll take things easy... it's doing my nut in though not being able ...

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

I never tried the pace boat, I always try to row exactly the watts I've planned and finish strong, I think this boat will distract me too much :D @ Anth: Is your elbow getting better? It's still a bit tender at the moment, but at least i can mostly function with the normal daily stuff without it ca...

half of all smokers die of smoking related disease and life expectancy is I think reduced by maybe 15 years?
It's so true, lindsay. I lost both my mam and dad through smoking related diseases.
