Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Had a second crack at the CTC challenge. Had a set target of 1.45.6 to aim for and in fairness that felt pretty close to max today and im not sure there was much else there.

Re: Combining Weight Training With Rowing Machine

I have done this with just 2 days of weightlifting and/or CrossFit a week and 4 days of Erging. That's just the sort of thing! I think I'd find that tough initially, so I can build up the Erg Days. How long are your erg workouts, Keith? I currently do one really long row on Sundays (usually a HM - ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Confusing HM yesterday. I have been doing a HM every Sunday for a while now, usually at SS rate but last week did first part faster and then last part as normal. Yesterday, I decide to do the whole HM at faster than SS and faster than FM pace to gauge how I felt. So, I did the HM at a 1:56.9 pace a...

Re: Combining Weight Training With Rowing Machine

There have been other post about this topic and I even created one a while back - it is a common "problem" many face and it's hard to figure out the balance but it can be done. After decades of being a weight training athlete I have become more of an Erger but I still use weights to keep muscle and ...

Re: The best erg plan for a sprint race

Martin is the sprint training expert - listen to him and he is correct in saying this will be an all out effort from the start.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Bit of 10km training today. 12 x 1km with 60 seconds rest targeting 1.44.9 and the stroke rate id use for most of the 10km felt quite good but the distance still scares me and far too much time for my mind to mess with me. Still not 100% confident i can complete 10km at this pace yet but i'll certa...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

First post this year! :oops: This is the first week for a while I have rowed more than twice. Actually managed 3 erg sessions and first proper OTW session since end of 2019 as COVID put pay to anything in 2020. Struggling with health issues since Christmas unfortunately, but it is what it is. Not l...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I can't post a screenshot for some reason. Intended on a medium-hard pace for a HM, so I capped it at r26 to try and stop me getting carried away. This was one of those days when I could possibly have PBed as it felt very manageable. Started at 1:52 pace for the first 3k and neg split from then on,...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

It has been a while since posting, but I read the thread often and I am blown away by what you are all doing. Nick gets a special mention, the consistency of effort is awesome. Anyway, I bought an erg last July and have now done some 1.2 million metres – I’d hardly call any of it training, just goi...

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

I played around with the damper settings lately, before I just put it up to 10, but reading more about it realized that a bigger number isn't always better. At any rate I was able to beat my previous 2000m time by 15 seconds today, and got a 6:59. Obviously extremely happy about beating the 7 minut...

Nudging up the pace / effort a little bit.
HR still fairly low for that pace too.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Came back from a weeks holiday yesterday so didnt fancy much. I rarely do R20 stuff so thought id try it broken up. A minute on/minute off then 3 minutes break after the 5th and 10th. The first set was just experimenting with foot straps and drag. Good practice for the CTC Time Meters Pace Watts Ca...

That's a real solid result. This...
