Yep definitely recommend this plan, I used it a few years back to take me under 17 mins and break the then 50-59 Mhwt BR.

Re: Should there be more drug testing in masters rowing?

I'd guess if you thought you were in line for a Master's WR you'd take advice, you'd learn all the WADA rules and not leave anything to chance. I don't think Dan Staite ever offered any plausible excuse for his EPO enhanced cycling and rowing performances. A naïve Google search: https://www.google....

Re: Should there be more drug testing in masters rowing?

That cyclist's excuse was contaminated meat (he ate a dodgy beef burger like Alberto Contador). Those sorts of excuse don't wash. He must have known the master's world record was up for grabs so why would he take a risk with possibly contaminated food. The guy was on the sauce and knew it. I know t...

Re: Should there be more drug testing in masters rowing?

FWIW At BRIC this year and last (if I remember correctly) there was a statement in the competitor handbook that all competitors could be subject to drug testing but I’m not aware of any actually happening. I do also seem to remember it was reported by ‘two pudding kid’ I think, (sorry TPK if it wasn...

Re: New Men's Hwt 60-69 6k World Record

Doesn't sound as though you intend to have a go at the 2k record, in Long Beach. WR that is, not just British record. Be a shame to miss that form, and I'd think you can't not be within shouting distance if the day breaks right for it.... I too have a vested interest in what records might be picked...

Very well done on the 6K and good luck with all the rest.

New Men's Hwt 60-69 6k World Record

For those interested, nailed my 1st individual World Record to-day (when confirmed by Concept 2), Men’s 60-69 Hwt 6k. :D Before BRIC, when I was taking on various British Records there were a few WR’s that looked ‘doable’ so bided my time until after BRIC to take them on. Now I’ve planned to take on...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Congrats again Rod, serious run of form you're in, keep it going but not too much mate. With the Worlds a while away, hopefully timing 'a peak' for them is on your radar now ;-) Hope everyone had a good Christmas, I haven't done anything meaning full since BRIC although I have managed to climb aboar...

Just saw this thread. Congratulations all to outstanding performances. Are any of you going to the Euro Championships in Kopenhagen? Probably not for me, it's on my radar but realistically it'll be either the English in Manchester, or mores likely the Tribute Indoor Rowing Champs in St Austell as I...

For BRIC I normally write the day up, to refer back to next year as a ‘blog’ entry. I’ve copied below and tells my day for anyone interested. With a 9:00 race the day started at 05:45. Didn’t get much sleep (normal on a race night :lol: ) as I tossed and turned most of the night going through the pa...

Re: Has anyone worked out their typical daily calories burn?

Surprised nobody's mentioned these calculators on the Indoor Sports service website. I used them a few years back and did it for me. https://indoorsportservices.co.uk/training/bmr_calculator https://indoorsportservices.co.uk/training/bmr https://indoorsportservices.co.uk/training/calorie_calculator ...
