Re: Help me help an 80 year old man

Could try placing a TV in front of the rower to alleviate boredom. Could row strapless at first. Really low drag factor, such as 90-100. Fan is a good idea. You could get him some compression shorts to wear. Slides are nice for decreasing back pain, can be a trip hazard though. For videos to send hi...

4000m threshold @ 2:05, 24 s/m.

Felt really solid today!
0:02 faster pace than last week, and at 4bpm lower avg. HR.
Now rest and mobility work until Monday. Have a great weekend!

Re: My 100km row for charity : A "How not to but still somehow" guide

Really impressive, especially considering you didn't train for it. Good job! :D You need to add another entry to your signature: 100KM 7:35:09.0.

Re: Sub 6:00 2k training journal

Is this a daily training log? I wasn't planning on it, I was replying to a question yesterday so figured I'd throw the workout in there as well. I intend on updating weekly/monthly based on training progression, or any changes in the current program. I can link my logbook if anyone was interested i...

I row at an erg studio -- it closed last Monday because of the shelter in place order. They had hoped to reopen in early April, but I doubt that will happen.

We've made the decision to buy an erg for my use at home.
Nice thats a good decision! :D

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

A lunchtime 10k today with a modest target... 10,000m / 42:05.6 / 2:06.2 / DF 115 / r21 / SPI 8.28 / 174w (target was 2:12 @ r20) Unfortunately, my execution was VERY sloppy and inconsistent. Rate was all over the place... had a solid final 2k @ 1:58.6 but the whole piece was a god awful mess. I ne...

Re: The Virus thread - Is COVID-19 affecting your training program?

I have a decent home gym: the rower and slides, dumbbells, incline adjustable bench, kettlebells, recumbent bike, and stuff like rubber bands, abmat, abwheel, shoulderhorn, pullup bar. As for impact to my training plan, I reduced my intensity a lot but also increased my volume a bit. However, I don'...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

It sounds like you are right on the spot. I am to much of a rookie to be able to be consistent on pace with different stroke rates. Naturally i'd want to stay at a much lower stroke rate, and i did my 2K at 25 s/m which i know is to low but it felt natural so i kept it. So when i switch up to 32+ s...
