Re: Skierg pb thread

New 2k PB tonight: 10:11.3, a decent chunk off from the previous 10:23.8 on 27 Aug. Starting to think sub 10' is not too far away! Will do more 400m or 500m interval work at 2:30 pace and below, with 90s or 60s rests.

Re: Skierg pb thread

Two new PBs for me tonight: First, 5k - 25:59.7 (from 27:37.8 on 29 July) Then, 1k - 4:58.8 (from 5:18.5 on 8 July) Pleasing to just sneak under 26' and 5' respectively, though possibly not the wisest thing to attempt two back-to-back PBs in the same session! This was one of those times when I could...

Re: Forum Flyers

Lindsay - sorry to say I will have to opt out of the IRL as I'm still not rowing - ankle feeling as bad today as 3 month's ago. I'm in two minds whether to sign up for the FF FTC (SkiErg metres) as although I will add to the overall total, I will without doubt lower the team member average!

Re: ErgData - interval workout problem

If your PM5 isn't running V27 firmware then the time to upgrade is NOW! I checked the PM5 on one of the gym SkiErgs tonight - it said hardware version 613 and firmware version 155. This seems odd as 155 (Jan 2017) is supposedly for the rower, not the SkiErg (for hardware versions 600 or higher). Ho...

Re: ErgData - interval workout problem

I've just found this post and registered so I can reply... I am a runner, looking to add in come C2 training to boost aerobic capacity and endurance. I've so far done 2 interval sessions on the rower (4x2000/2:00 and 2x5000/3:00). Its a PM4, with the latest firmware, capturing the data using ergdat...

Re: Skierg pb thread

I did a light 15 minute warm-up John, consisting of a mix of treadmill walking, elliptical and then a bit on the stepper, just to raise the hr a little and get the blood flowing. Then on the SkiErg, I just did a few practice strokes and setting the damper/drag factor. I guess I could do more on the ...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Got another new 2k pb today: 10:23.8, so beating my previous by only 2.2s! Bit disappointed at the tiny margin, as this one did hurt a lot despite not going off too fast and pacing it more evenly than before: 2:36.6, 2:36.8, 2:37.0, 2:33.4, overall 2:35.9 It's going to take a lot of work to get belo...

Re: Skierg pb thread

New PB for the 2k tonight: 10:26.0 - beat my old time by 45s. Admittedly, this was only the second one I've done, and I knew my first one was a bit soft, so I didn't have to kill myself to comfortably beat it. Still, as hjs says, a PB is a PB.

Re: Skierg pb thread

New 10k pb this morning, first in my age group to do one this year. I was apprehensive to start, but all went much better and easier than expected. The last 2k was 8s faster than my 2k a week ago. Now I'm going to rest, relax and recover. That's a really good pace for your 10k John. You will have t...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

5x1000m/2:00r SkiErg. This is a tough workout when each km takes about 5:18 to do. Lots of doubts about being able to sustain the pace to the end of each 1k, and really wanted to call it a day after the 4th one. Still, the final 4 intervals all faster than my 1k test PB (5:18.5) so a positive result...

Good one John - looks like you will be able to make a significant improvement on your 5k time and move up the ranking.

Re: Skierg pb thread

Thanks John. I was quite surprised by the damper setting 5 - I half-expected it to present to much force for me to sustain, but it was really quite ok. In fact I found myself tuning into catching the fan at the start of the stroke really quite well so that I could get good efficient acceleration ear...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Did a 5k this afternoon, and although it's my first proper attempt I'm going to claim it as a PB. 27:37.8 @ 2:45.7, 37spm. That's 2s per 500 faster than my 2k best, so very pleased with it. I do like this kind of distance / time and really enjoy the point somehere about halfway through where the rat...
