Re: Training lost on PM5 - battery status reliable?

You don't have to if you use ergdata, (or potentially leaving the stick in) but if you start your PM5 from cold without them, then it wont look for your HR belt and you'll have to connect manually each time. (Sequence with ergdata: Switch on PM; once BT active load ergdata ; Once connected to the er...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Kind of you to say Stu - one of the good days! Pop by any time, most welcome. And well done again for recovering your 2k at SRIC so well. Kept me on the edge of my seat watching.

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Shout out for all the Sub7ers who competed in the SRIC (and Welsh). I watched a good few of the races: age group stuff for all three distances and the opens. Some excellent racing and performances. Just a couple of highlights would be Warren's gold in the 1k M50 and Johan's double gold for 2k and 50...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

https://i.postimg.cc/cgw18VH6/IMG-20201121-153150-984.jpg Really didn't enjoy this. It looked like it was running 20 mins late, then there was a false start (I wasn't sure if it was me or not), and it said 'Go' not 'Row' so I was confused if it was time to start. I couldn't get my chimp out of my h...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

I'd guessed you'd be missing out again in this second lockdown Susan. Such a shame to bugger up your training like that. Not that it seems to be having much detrimental effect. Still in your winning ways with a couple of strong 8848s under your belt I see. Congrats on getting the gym instructor vote...

Re: What is your steady state pace?

Also depends how you choose to define "steady state" - whether by HR like Tony, or Pace like Henry, or whatever else fits how you train. I do happen to do my "steady state" sessions at around 2:00 to 2:05 depending on session. The fastest of those is really too fast (for me) for some definitions of ...

Re: Hello all - very tall newbie here

Welcome Jonathan. Yes clearly huge potential given your size and background. With just three shortish sessions a week you will make good progress and attain very creditable and, to many of us, enviable numbers. But I suspect in reality that isn't enough training to properly realise your potential if...

Re: Warm up / Cool down data

I'm another that has every meter sync'd to my online log. I'm not interested in Monthly or Annual avg pace type stats - so the slow stuff has no impact on me other than the positive of adding to the total. For all the real training sessions, I tend compare this time to last time I did the same piece...

Re: Hello from a newbie with a few idiotic questions

Re the seat thing, I've found the standard C2 seat pad works for me for most sessions, although I do focus on shorter intervals and distances than you are looking at (less than an hour). If I do an hour or HM I use 2 seat pads stacked. That's just about OK, but my bum's still pleased when I get to t...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

...and some more... 27/10 5x2k 2r @ 20 spm with a 2:02 pace target. Just one rep 0.1 over total time otherwise a perfect score! 29/10 Dumbbells and 8k @ 20 spm in 33:13.4 30/10 30 mins TT. Set off to try to improve my CTC score but bailed after 20 mins so only 7676m. The good news is I held pace for...

Re: 2000m times over time

There have been a number of stabs at this. The more successful have looked at the data at the macro level - notably world bests in each masters category for each year. This clearly can only simulate the decline for any one individual - indeed the groups will contain completely different individuals ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

2k = 7:13.3 (fastest of the 3 recent race days) 1k = 3:27.1 500m = 1:34.1 As always, very impressive numbers Lindsay and 3 races over just a couple of hours is another amazing feat to me. I've seen signs of a bit more consistent training from you recently so hopefully work is relenting a little and...
