Re: Model B - rebalance flywheel or get a Model D?

I know nothing about Model Bs, but if you think the flywheel is out of balance (sort-of hard to imagine that it's out of balance much - though C2 does add balancing weights here and there, I think), and if you're handy with hand tools, checking the balance of the flywheel might be easy enough. I bal...

Re: Heart Rate Monitor

I bought the Polar Bluetooth one from C2. All I ask is that it reliably speaks to my PM. It does that. I'm satisfied.

Re: out of shape mens 2k time

Re: Reduced blood pressure = reduced performance?

Yes, very interesting comments Brian. Thanks for taking the time... In fact, lots of interesting comments in this thread. About three years ago, when I was really into multi-hour daily workouts and clean(er) eating, my cholesterol levels were checked. I can't recall the values exactly, but total cho...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

AM session. 56 minutes. 10,200 meters. 145 DF. SR 19. Hi Paul. Yeah, just trying to get started working on a near-daily basis again. Quite weak. I'm running out of energy right at the one-hour mark (whether fueled or after overnight fast - doesn't seem to matter), even at this slow pace. I'm getting...
