Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Sorry to hear about your Dad Susan, always a horrid time - feel for you. There's obviously loads of stuff to be done, which in some ways distracts from the melancholy but is really just a PITA! Took me a year to sort out my uncle's simple estate after he passed in 2017. Very best wishes anyhow. May ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Went hard at it but slow is the new normal I am afraid - just not quite used to it yet. Temporary lull Lindsay. I've been like it most of the year and without your excuse of travelling away from the erg. You'll be back on it by Christmas....and I hope to join you! ... Or time for a regime change.

Re: Fitness status

Well I only contemplate sitting on the erg for those sort of periods once or twice a year when forced by a challenge, so just being able to do it so regularly suggests to me that you are reasonably fit! Congrats! Maybe worth looking at the rankings? Here's our age group Half Marathon entries so far ...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Latest from me: 28/8 Dumbbells and 8k @20 spm in 32:42.3 (spot on but forgot the HR target and only crept up to 143) 30/8 2k TT. Awful! Set off @1:44 and barely made it through 500. Fell back to 1:50s for the next k then tried to get back on pace (1:43 for the last 500) so rescued a 7:07.8 but clear...

Re: Does Concept 2 ever have sales?

Never seen a "sale" as such. What does happen infrequently but regularly is that new rowers are used in major competitions and are available to purchase/take away from the venue at the end of the competition day - so still new enough for most having just been used for a few k on one day. Typically s...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Double whammy tonight doing a 60 mins for the FMMC and to finish off my 4th week Dog Days Challenge total - so that was good. I normally do 30k+ per week anyway so the first few weeks of the challenge are fine, but the fourth week takes a bit more planning! Recent sessions for me: 21/8 Dumbbells and...

Re: ErgData fine during use then fails to record data

Its happened just twice to me in 8 months. I've found if I move the workout from PM5 to a USB stick and upload it from the stick to my C2 Online Log, then the next time I sync Ergdata on the phone the workout copies back across to the iPhone 6s without issue. So all my physical databases are the sam...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Its great to clock up another million Susan - congrats on the 13. I started way back in 1998 but have had a couple of multi year breaks so although I've been at it slightly longer than you in elapsed time, probably not actual time in the saddle! I just got my T-shirt and pin for 15 million which was...

Re: live rowing cable that works with an iphone

I just bought mine direct from Live Rowing here https://liverowing.com/store1/liverowingconnect. Arrived in Somerset in about a week, no issues. But as Mitchel says...why? I used mine with my old PM3 but my iPhone 6s works just fine over Bluetooth with the PM5 on my new machine...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Latest sessions from me: 4/8 Dumbbells and 8K @ 20 spm. I'm still mindfull of trying to keep heartrate below ut1 cap - and mostly achieve it - but I enjoy targetting the pace and total numbers too much so I'm no longer being a slave to it. Managed a spot on total of 33:03.3. 5/8 8x500 3:30r. Last ti...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

That's a very solid 5k Susan - bodes well for Exeter - I'll try to drop in on the 14th Sep if free that day and cheer you on! Intrigued by how that 30x300m r20s worked if you were in a pair. Your own ergs or swapping over? Congrats on the win anyway. My latest: 29/7 Dumbbells and 8k @ 20 spm in 33:0...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Some very useful meters racked up there Susan. Both 30x anything and 35k straight are tough mentally - just go on forever, so all good practice for the Marathon. Hope the 10k went well and under 45min. I clocked up another year last week so new benchmarks to be set for a 62 year old! Training still ...

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

I'm one of the OCD watchers of the PM. Normally concentrating on pace to try to do the same each stroke at target. Sometimes concentrate on SPM for an spm limited piece. Sometimes on predicted finish to hit a specific number. Sometimes on avg pace to get the required result. At moderate pace I can u...

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...
