Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Still enjoying a busy month so some training days missed sadly. But with the welcome summer heat, training is a bit overly sweaty anyway! As ever mixed results but not all doom and gloom! 7/7 CTC - heeded the warnings and started reasonably conservatively so was able to neg split the reps 1:37.3; 1:...

Re: At what age did you notice recovery was impaired?

For me its been clouded by how well trained I've been. I started erging in my 40s - keen and regular but without much knowledge. I then had a break and tried harder on my return and broke all my PBs except the 5k in my 50s. No recovery issues. Then had another break and have been back on it since Oc...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Blimey, I go away for a week and there's loads of work reported Susan. Loving the 100m PB - didn't expect to be reading about any of those for a while yet - well done indeed! The 10k training sessions also looking very strong at sub 2:15 and a very nice 6k thrown in too. Looks like you'll have no tr...

Re: Drag factor

IMO on the very short workouts (<500), if you're very strong, then a lower DF will make a noticeable difference probably exacerbated the poorer your technique. Most new machines are well over 200 (mine was 226) and it made a difference to me. But anything 500 and above will almost certainly deliver ...

Re: Row then lift or lift then row?

Always weight before row for me. I typically only do my Dumbbell session twice a week and want to be able to maximise the weight and reps I can manage so I have to do the Dumbbells first. As I'm then fatigued I always follow with a UT1/2 session typically 8k at the mo where I'm not really too bother...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Nice going on that 2nd 4x5k Susan. Always good to nail a session that got away from you before. That 12x1 was pretty tasty too. Couple of more hopeful sessions from me at last (tho still way down on last years SBs). 11/6 4x2k r2. Wanted to do these at 1:52.5 to get 8k in half an hour. Only managed o...

Re: 21000m challenge wiped out by PM5

The timeout should be 4 mins during an active piece or 2 mins if just looking at the PM. If you need longer either timeout can be reset by pressing a button on the PM - eg cycle round the options on the units button. If connected to Ergdata it seems to stay active...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Sorry to take over the sub7 thread Mike Hey its nice of you to drop by Lindsay, welcome any time. Actually its gotten quite quiet around here recently. Anyway, yes we do have some surprisingly similar numbers. Indeed I used to use 43/173 HRR too, but then I went a long time never seeing a 170 altho...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Yeah, I do much prefer the sprinty stuff Lindsay so really should have been more up for it. I'm beginning to have serious doubts about my "new" (this year) training regime where my base session is an 8k at 20 spm and keeping my HR below my UT1 top limit 144 - try for sub 140. What happens is that my...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Now giving in to cake temptations - that is something I can identify with! But FM training...you're losing me again there. Having said that my norm is at least 30k and some months 40k per week anyway (assuming you include wu and cd which I do). But I'm not trying to do it with a new hip - so don't p...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

I'm still around TwoPuds and will be for the foreseeable. Amazing to see you PB your post op sprinting in the same post as yet another HM. You're welcome to the record for the greatest number of those! Its always good to interact with others, but even if not I find it helps me to catalogue my sessio...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Well done Susan. Completing yet another HM is quite an achievement in itself never mind the time which will no doubt improve further this season. ..and just seen your and Carol's new World Record Rod. Wooohooo! Much as I love 500 intervals...the idea of doing them for nearly 7 hours does not appeal ...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

I've been struggling again recently and not done anything good enough to prompt posting! I seem to be getting worse not better. I have given blood and have had a cold but I'm not sure if the perceived detrimental effect of this is real, psychosomatic, or completely made up. Whatever, I'm fed up of e...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Some great milestones there Susan. Sub 8:30 2k and 13k+ in an hour. Progress is still strong so you must be very pleased post op.

Another fantastic 60mins Rod. A couple more months of improvements like that and you'll have smashed it!

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Fantastic result on the FM Rod great to see a PB and a sub 3 hour FM. Loving those numbers for the Finnish HM Susan although it would have been better still 0.3s faster! Hope the suntan hasn't peeled off! It must have been great to get out OTW so much through the lovely Easter weather Marjorie. Also...
