Re: More evidence "Go Slow and Easy" better than "Work Hard"

The going slow debate to get better has been a prime topic in the nine yrs that I have been participating here. As said, there are many variables. To be at an elite level or close to it, you are going to have to put in a lot of meters and they will have to be relatively slow. But then I wonder about...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Before 2020 runs out I figured I should post something. Haven't done so since May. Operating under the radar. Only a matter of days before turning 75. Trying to hold up the old guys' end of the rowing deal. Absolutely no training program - done some of this and some of that and not very much in tota...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Back at you Nick. You recently added 60+ PBs. It appears that we both are doing not too bad. Me, just trying to stop the decay.

Thanks, guys. There is still a little life left in these tired, replacement bones.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Hadn't done a HM in three yrs, so today did my second one in four weeks. HM: 1:26:22.3 @2:02.8, DF 129, SPM 28, SPI 6.8. 1st half: 1:59.8; Lst half: 2:05.8. Got tired and hips were screaming. I would imagine that my two artificial hips are not helping matters. I can't point to specific physiology, b...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

First 5K of season.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Nobody does 2Ks this time of the year, except for me and a few other nuts.

2K: 7:13.5 @1:48.3, DF 148, SPM 31, SPI 8.9. A little surprising given a weekend of vigorous bicycling. I'll take it.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

First row of 2021 season.

30min: 7841@1:54.7, DF 146, SPM 30, SPI 7.7. Yesterday's 5K at SPI 8.4 took a little out of me. Once again, it's that recovery thing. Bob S. used to talk about that all the time. Not to mention 13m short of SB in 2020. Got a whole season to top it. Got to start somewhere.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Last training day of year. Might as well end on perhaps my favorite distance, that is, 5K. 5K: 19:03.3 @1:54.3, DF 145, SPM 28, W/s: 8.4. Slow start, so did not quite get down to the old guys target of 19:00. Season: 1.058 Megameters. Avg pace across all: 1:58.3, for whatever that is worth. Way bett...

Steph, good power. Stroke is fine. Watch the feet. You're on the way to good results.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Trying to keep some minimal erging fitness.

Today: 5K: 18:57.7@1:53.7, DF 139, SPM 28, SPI 8.5. Fairly warm.

In the category of irrelevant info: 7 sub-19:00 5Ks this season out of 12 done.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Had a nonathlon slot to fill, so I sucked it up with a HM. Been almost three yrs since I did one. HM: 1:28:12.0 @2:05.4, DF 118, SPM 27. Definitely worst time ever, but I expected it. Took a 90 sec break at 16K. First time for that too - butt was killing me. About the same spot that Lance mentioned ...

Re: Indoor Rowing Form

You can rank it but it's unverified so you can put any old distance or time you fancy in there. That makes your rounded down workout complete junk and not worth the space it wastes in the C2 database. If you want to rank 5K then just row 5K. It's not hard to program the PM5 that way. Of course, you...

Re: Indoor Rowing Form

I'll mention something that can be done when Just Row does not result in an exact rankable distance or time. You might start a Just Row session and realize that you have a pretty good time going. You can stop just after you cross a rankable distance. Let's say you row 5012 meters in say 22 minutes. ...

5k PB - 17:58.5

Finally got my sub18!
18:00 barrier gone. You really had to dig deep on this one. After 4K you were on 1:48.9 pace or 18:09. The last 1K of 3:27.4 brought you home. How about 1:51 [37:00] for 10K?
