Re: How much training can you do post 50?

Hello. I am 54 and followed the PP for the first time this year. I rowed 5-6 days per week pretty consistently for 7 months. I started conservatively. In the end, I had my best season with PRs in 2K, 5K, 1 mile, & 10K distances. It is a good plan as you are constantly challenged based on what you ar...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

@Ray - Thanks for the reminder (again). Came in to update my signature! :) Also, thanks for the kudos on the 10K PB @jackarabit and @Mike . I think you were right @Mike, it was the rest. I had my first session with my Trainer on Tuesday and was actually still a bit sore still so the rest was good. ...

@Lance - Congrats on breaking through 7:00. Has to feel so good. @Mitchel - Nice work getting in the game with a couple of beasts and sticking with it to win in the end. Congrats!

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Greetings folks. A bread N butter erg session today trying to bathe in technique. Starting with a Personal Trainer on Tuesday afternoon to get a plan to build some strength over the Spring/Summer and hopefully carry into next season. Not looking forward to those first 2 weeks of persistent soreness,...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

I've not been posting a lot on this thread (because I'm not doing the Pete Plan) but I did LOL literally when I read his post. Glad you're feeling better Tom! Hi Everyone. Like @Mike , I have also been lurking this thread to see how you all are doing, but am off the PP. Tom, I also did a LOL (at wo...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Just checking in ... Looks like everyone is progressing well. Good to see! Thank you for all of the kudos on my last 2KTT that I didn't see until today. It is much appreciated! I have been doing other non-rowing things (SPIN class, boot camp) and none have given me the satisfaction of the erg. So .....

Re: Pete Plan Thread

@IdahoMike - Welcome! The answer is yes, IMHO. @jackarabit gives you a great rationale. I followed the PP for the first time this season for 7 months and did not enter 1 race. Try it. It's free, so what have you got to lose? Check in here and let us know how it is going - good or bad - or if you ne...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Greetings All. Congrats on the 8K+ PB @JerekKruger. Nice work. @RayofSunshine - that 5 second clobber at the end of the 30 mins looks good! Short piece today for me to check my pacing. Rest day tomorrow and 2K Tues or Weds. Here's hoping I can change that 2K box below this week. :D https://i.imgur.c...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

I'm getting fired up about your TT. I'm hoping you go sub 8!! When did you do your last 2kTT? @RayofSunshine - Thanks. Sub-8 would be nice, but may be a little aggressive. My last 2KTT was last month on January 5th. My goal is to break that time tho! I assure you I will give it my all and report ba...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

I did this one first thing in the morning fasting after a late night out at a hockey game. Lousy excuse, but that's all I got. @mitchel674 - Thanks for the :lol: :lol: :lol: on this one. I am sure the hockey game and night out was worth it. Life is for the living! Also, going head-to-head on the 4x...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

gradually ramp up to best the prior time in the second 5k. @mitchel674 - What kind of numbers did you end up hitting when you "ramped up" between 5K-8K? Do you think the jumps were too big when you looked back? @Mike - Put the HRM on again today. Was really gasping in the last rep in today's sessio...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Thanks @Mike & @Ray for the PB congrats. Got my HRM so decided to strap it on and just see how it felt today. Since I have 0 interest in doing a maxHR test at this point, especially as I head into a taper week, it was interesting to see how it felt and what it showed. Not sure if does me much good r...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Cycle 6/Week 2/Day 5 Tried a new workout today for my "Hard Distance" day that I have never done before. A "10K Push". Had no idea how it would end up, but was definitely breathing heavy with the pace in the last couple of reps. As it turns out, I also PR'd my 10K here - although I have never really...
