Doing a great job but you've been hovering around that 2:00 / 500 for too long. Time to reach into the tank a little.

Re: Erging Boredom vs Cross Training

Re: Training for the 500 or 1000 m event

Ralph I really like the look of your training schedule for these rows. My race is 8 weeks away but it includes a 500 and a 4 minute event as opposed to the 1k. The extra two weeks should allow me to continue the pattern of descending times to suit the 4 minutes. I have done a 1k in 3:02 and 1270 met...

Re: First 2k - need training advice

Your weights should be directed towards strength. Basic movements are key....bench press, squats, deadlifts etc. No peaking exercises. There is a great article by Terry Oneill on preparing for the British Indoor Championships with an excellent 6 week lead up training plan. Google "Mens Health Magazi...

Re: ideas for a second session?

After a 30 minute row I always feel like a couple of sprints.
Try 5 x 200m with 1 minute break in between. Follow this with a couple of ks on the bike to cool down. Running on a treadmill is like watching soccer......life's too short.
