Re: Hernia?

I've had an "unresolved" hernia for 20 years. It has had virtually no effect on my life and even less on my physical activity. For me, the only reason I would get it "resolved" is that insurance companies consider an unresolved hernia to be a "preexisting condition" on a change of plan. That said, s...

Re: Polarized training 5k sessions

The Pete's Plan is just fine -- but it is not really polarized (which is 80% long slow distance and 20% high intensity work). It can, however, be modified to make it more polarized. If you want to learn more about polarized training listen to the following two Velonews podcasts featuring Dr. Stephen...

Hope hjs' formula that the average of the 1k's predicts your 2k pace +1 works for me (I'll find out in a couple of weeks). :wink:

Re: Please help me row slower...

Basic 10k -- 27 sec slower splits than my 2k pace. (This is 50% of my 2k power) Although lately I've been doing a lot at 30 - 35 sec slower. Recently I've adopted doing a wakeup 5k first thing in the morning at this slower pace and that pace has become addictive for my evening ss workout. I will al...

Re: Is this workout effective?

Getting back on the truth machine with the goal of aerobic fitness. Plan is 30 minutes (excluding warmup & cool down) of steady state every other day and an IT workout every 5th or 6th session. Used C2 formula for my max HR - 155, and Free Spirits Training Bands. A couple of questions: 1. using the...

Re: Please critique my form

1. I'm in general agreement with hjs that you need to "swing", "hinge", "rock" (whichever word works best for you) your body both fore and aft by rotating it at the hip joint. And that your body swing should be from 11 am to 1 pm. In your case, your upper body doesn't swing forward past vertical. Th...

Re: I think I'm starting to get it...

And if you use ErgData, you can put "Average Power" into one of the Wigit Boxes. And if you keep your stroke length constant (which I do except for sprinting) you can just monitor Average Power. Saves having to do math in your head to do watts/stroke while rowing. :wink: You mean "Average Force", r...

Re: Rigging a mixed masters 2x

Start with "2) All the same - If we are following the "catching pegs with your blades" philosophy, we'd want to be the same length in the water - If I am outpulling her, it just lightens the load on her oars" This is the preferred solution. If your length becomes a problem (because she is shorter), ...

Re: I think I'm starting to get it...

if efficiency is entirely dependent on watts per stroke Efficiency would be Net work to handle / total work, and is linked to rating, posture and stroke sequences. Watt/Rating = Work done per stroke = average handle force x net stroke length. (Emphasis added) It's a useful index of stroke quality. ...

Re: Coffey rowing shells

This might be a little late. Back in the day I spent a two weeks in a Coffey pair. It was a demanding boat to row: it was tippy and required the rowers to more attune to the dynamics of setting the boat. (It probably was a result of minimizing wetted surface area and cross-sectional area). After a f...

Re: 100k training plan?

I endorse your plan. You appear to have appropriate variation both within each week and between weeks while at the same time having a nice gradual build overall and nicely timed taper. Good luck.
