Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

Even more curiously I was just about to post that same question. If DLC Gidea Park don't shout out by Sunday it will be a straight simple unrestricted 2K. On the 13th of June Joe Keating posted this on the CTC fb page; ''DLC Gidea Park have let me know that they will no longer be launching boats in...

Progress. Prior PB was 3 months ago. Aerobic capacity is still an issue.

Re: Training slump... it finally happened to me... :(

I hit a slump at 1 year.

This seems weird, but I started doing 1 hour HR capped rows (60% HRR & 70% HRR) and kept trying to beat my best distances. I also bought a SkiErg. :D

I just keep an eye on my average split pace to see where I am at. I probably analyze the monitor too much, I rarely look away from the screen and the information.
Exactly the same
Haha same here... even thinking i might have OCD regarding this tbh :D :lol:
Y'all are not alone! :lol:

Re: 5km to 10 km training plan?

I did this plan last year. I did all 5 days each week.

There's also a thread that's dedicated to it. Great for motivation and accountability.

This is what I started using for my elbow, back, etc. I also sit in a jacuzzi and splurge on massages. https://www.amazon.com/HealthmateForever-Handheld-Electrotherapy-Electronic-Management/dp/B00O7CM12W/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?hvadid=174208357157&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9011564&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t2&hvqmt=e&hvrand=1...

Really look at, as if you are training someone else, would you let someone do what you do yourself?

Re: Pete Plan Thread

That was brutal. I went out too fast on the 1st one, then I felt like i had to go faster each subsequent interval. I'm surprised my final interval was as fast as my 3rd. I was completely out of gas at the end. I was pulling 2:03s at the end.

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Nice meters Scott. BPP 4.5 on SkiErg I set a target pace with a capped HR of 150, but I couldn't keep the HR down in the 2nd set. About midway in the 2nd interval I decided to push faster. https://i.imgur.com/WDK4ckV.jpg?1 I'll be heading up to NC for most of 6 months in 3 weeks, so I'll be taking a...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

hi guys - haven't fallen off the Pete Plan wagon yet, although as it gets drier and lighter here in the UK I'm trying to get out on the bike more... Today was 3.1 - 4 x 1000m / 5min rest. Last time I did this session was October 18th last year where I managed an average of 1:59.0 so thought I'd aim...
