A rate ''capped'' piece is different, if for example it's capped at 20 sp...

Re: English Indoor Rowing Championships

I'll be there Stu, looking forward to seeing you.

I've never known them do anything other than 2k and 500m races and not seen or heard anything about a HM?

I'm hoping to get out there. Must research the costs of a place (with access to an erg) to stay and plane fares.
Book the Hyatt Regency through Regatta central,it's the main C2 hotel with the International meeting and all the training ergs, you also get a race entrants discount.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Ok, I am curious about this advice. Is there any evidence that mixing aerobic and anaerobic work is a problem? I recall from the 80/20 running book that the best training results were with 80% aerobic and 20% anaerobic mix of exercise (thus the title). I followed the link to philmaffetone, and he a...
