Re: Pete Plan 2017

8,000m @ 2:14.4 26 SPM. Back hurts less, but aches more. Every day just deciding whether to rub a little dirt in it or shut it down. @cal - welcome, my fitness was zero when I started last June. 1.2M meters later, better shape then I've been in decades. Just get on and row the numbers will draw you ...

Re: Pete Plan 2017

Managed 8,000m @ 2:15.1 without the back giving out. Still hurts a bit so most of the row was making sure only the lower half of my body and core are involved in the drive. Faster than the normal recovery row and the heart was pumping, ramped it up to 25/26 SPM which helped. @gordon - welcome back t...

Re: Pete Plan 2017

Back in the saddle albeit just testing the waters. 15' @ 2:14 just to see how the back would hold up. Middle vertebrae on my back just feels swollen and tender. Wasn't going to wait another day, feels alright but have to protect it which means so much for the PP for now.

Re: Pete Plan 2017

Tweaked my back yesterday, not sure if it was from the speed intervals on Monday, but feels like a knife between my ribs and no better today. Sleeping last night was a real joy :-( Frustrated feeling of interrupting PP shows I am addicted. @paul - solid row. @elk - be too aggressive now and then, be...

PP Cycle 2 - Week 2.5 5,000m DF125

Hard distance, last was 2:06.8, this was 2:06.0. Couldn't push it further. Doing week 2 next week as this was week 3 done out of order.

@ivo - excellent impressive after all those intervals.

Re: Pete Plan 2017

@gordon - had the same issue, I ended up trying to be (overly) conscious of handle in my left hand when I drive which made me straighten out. My right arm is way stronger than my left. Now I could ask a weirder question, what does your head do on the drive, mine drops to the left when I pull and the...

PP 2.2 Cycle 2 - 9,000m DF124 SS @ 2:18.6 goal was SPM 22/23 and HR < 130 all I had time for. @mike - sorry to hear that, a dog is a window into your soul, just because they have 4 legs doesn't make it easier. @elk/andy - you guys fly. @glen - I think am close to breaking 8' so either after this cyc...
