Re: PM5 Data logging, difference between Interval and Recovery

Another reason to consider rest intervals is when analyzing efforts to try and determine someone's critical power. A 4x500m workout with 1 minute rests should be interpreted entirely differently than a continuous 2k effort at the same power. There are ways to do this, but if the rest data is thrown ...

Re: PM5 Data logging, difference between Interval and Recovery

I believe BoatCoach (by the developer of ErgData) does export rest period correctly and it’s an Android app.

What I often do is row “just row” and then use rowsandall.com internal editor to add the intervals into to the data.

Re: PM5 Data logging, difference between Interval and Recovery

You can use Painsled, it does record the rest period data. Using rowsandall.com in addition to the concept 2 logbook, you can see your rest period data as well (it’s easy to sync to both logbooks from painsled). Recording and analyzing rest data is important to determine the training stress score an...

Does ayone know if the ErgData app records drive length? I would like to check my drive length for historical sessions but can't see it in the app or on concept2 online logbook.
It is not recorded. Use PainSled or BoatCoach. They do record these data.

The Half Marathon is 21097 meters of course. A typo in the table.

Re: Rowing in Zwift (high quality software) who's interested?

Sounds messy and I though it was hard enough to get RowPro up and running. I think its a common problem with a lot of this type of third party software trying to interface with the Concept 2 monitor, you need to be pretty tech savvy to get it up and running, not to mention have a lot of patience in...

Re: Best rowing apps for training + fun, iPhone and Laptop

I have been using 3D real scenery rowing on the water for the past 4 months exclusively, but in the dark days of winter training I like to use PainSled (iPhone) or BoatCoach (Android) for data capturing. Painsled works with Zwift, which means I am "riding" along with cyclists. It's really a nice way...

Re: Rowing in Zwift (high quality software) who's interested

Just wanted to mention that I do row most of my steady state ergo rows using Painsled and Zwift. I find it stimulating to see "other" people around, as well as being able to do one or two "full loops" during an hour of training, as opposed to the virtual kilometers on the PM5. I have never used Zwif...

Re: Automated technique evaluation?

Hey! I'm rowing at a local gym several times a week and since I'm a Maker/Hacker guy, I started to think how I could add some sensors to the erg to help be improve my technique. The first thing that came to my mind was a sensor for the seat position. This could give me the length of each stroke so ...

Re: PM5 Data collection

I used ergdata yesterday and it's nice to see the extra data but having to first upload to the logbook to then be able to download the stroke data as .fit or .tcx isn't really what I want to do. I don't mind using on-line services, but I really want a setup where everything is local and I can view ...

Re: wolverine plan, anyone?

True words. I do like to do the L4 sessions in my plan. I also mix in some of the L1 and L2 sessions when my personal plan requires a session with that effect, but over time have created my own library of sessions, including some effective ones that are not in the Wolverine Plan. Any insight into y...

Re: wolverine plan, anyone?

I can't imagine myself following the full plan year round given the I tend to burn out on the Pete Plan. There's a difference between repeating a grocery list of workouts copied from another source, and following an actual training program that considers the appropriate balance of volume and intens...
