Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

All C2 results should be viewed with a gain of salt. I disagree. I think that bogus results stick out like a sore thumb. There have been countless records challenged and disallowed over the years. Virtually all record holders have a history and body of work that support a record. You get someone su...

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

Two changes have been made in the 30-39 Female LWt WRs. 10k: Anna Lewis, 37:54.4. 60 min: Jen House, 14904m. Lorraine has a verified 10K of 37:43.9. Apparently C2 did not see this time. And she has a non-verified 60 min at 15,202. Obviously one of these records she already has, and the other is just...

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

Of course, Lorraine Walker dominates the 30-39 LWT female field. When it all gets sorted out, within a year or so, she might well hold all 13 WRs in that category, even the 2K which has held since 2000.

See her profile on C2: https://www.concept2.com/news/concept2- ... ine-walker

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

Bogus times appear at the top of rankings fairly frequently, although most are due to error or such - using none C2 machine, etc. World records not so much. In this case, Suplick's posted WR does not seem credible. Using a good predictive technique, using her 2K and 10K rankings from the same period...

Re: Sub 6:30 by October. Training advice

When I first saw this topic, it seemed like a pretty ambitious goal. But then I see that the OP is 6'4", age 36, 250lb, ex-athlete. And rows three times a week. I will 100% guarantee that if you do nothing different, you will reach 6:30 in 7-8 months. Don't really think that 2Ks are all that necessa...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Rod, Not sure I'm buying your recent posts. In Nov, you clocked in at 6:54.1. Since then you've been doing sharpening work on the erg and come in at 6:57.2 at the WRIC. Wondering how you reconcile that? I thought sub-6:50 was the goal. Last yr at WRIC, you did 6:58.1. Since then you've been doing th...

Re: Did training predict actual race performance?

The bigger the sample size for the "predictor" workout(s), in other words, the better. This is true whether you're repeating the same workout or whether you're essaying a number of different possibilities. And if you look at enough of them, you often start to see a kind of bell-curve distribution r...

Re: Did training predict actual race performance?

Interesting feedback. Henry, I think you are probably unusual in predicting so closely to race results and having very similar results. You have a lot more experience than many for sure. I can see that your 8x500, R1 would get you very close to 2K pace. Jonathan, I find myself in nearly total agreem...

Did training predict actual race performance?

Since this is the training forum and the WRIC just completed, as well as other venues, it would be interesting to see commentary by those who competed about whether their training produced expected results. For example, I've seen a lot of statements that 8 or 10x500m predicts a 2K time. Did it? Or 4...

Re: 2019 Crash-Bs -- New 60+ MHW 2k WR

Mark, my birthday is Mar 5, so we are in the same boat. Have to wait virtually an entire yr to post a time at a qualifying event. There seems to be no such events held after Mar 5. I'm thinking Melbourne FL would be a great place for the WRIC.

Re: 2019 Crash-Bs -- New 60+ MHW 2k WR

It's quite evident that rowing/erging is predominately an eastern/midwestern US activity. Hopefully that is a factor when picking a venue for the rowing championships. It would be nice to know what the plan is for the next few years. Also, this new bracket determination needs to go.

Re: 2019 Crash-Bs -- New 60+ MHW 2k WR

I did not realize that Krum was not actually 65. I checked earlier this yr with Concept 2 about the new categories for racing and was told that actual birthday was still the criterium for WRs. So Krum will have to figure in another yr of aging as far as 65+ WR. Might be close. OTOH, Darling is looki...

Re: 2019 Crash-Bs -- New 60+ MHW 2k WR

One lesson I get from Darling's WR is that those of us who have come to rowing late in life don't stand much of a chance against those who have been rowing at a very high level for decades. Perhaps, it can be done, but the climb is extremely steep. A little perspective on Mike C's Cincinnati perform...
