Re: Introduction and Goals

You are right. I was doing my longer runs to fast. Bought a heart rate monitor and now do 5k's at 120 bpm, which is 60% and that's where I feel I need to spend much more time. Lets see if that approach helps me move forward.

Re: Introduction and Goals

So I tried longer trainings, but it does not work for me. Contrary to doing 2k's, 5k's and 4x0.5k-intervals, anything above 30 minutes rips me apart. It takes close to a week to recover. Think it is the lungs that have been damaged by two bouts of pneumonia, two bouts of whooping cough, and asthmati...

Re: Introduction and Goals

Thanks Jackrabit. Feeling better now and trained yesterday and the day before. Will do longer runs as well. From next week onwards 40 minutes. This week one or two 30 minute sessions.

Regards, Edwin.

Re: Introduction and Goals

Interesting approach. I'll let it sink in a bit. Makes sense though.

Re: Introduction and Goals

I hope you'll have a speedy recovery, mate! The intervals go pretty well, here. I do one that's 4 x 500 with 2 minute rest intervals. The other is 3 x 1000 with 3 minutes intervals. In both cases I row split times like 1:55 to 2:05. The longer, steady state rows go less well. I can do 6 to 7k, but t...

Re: Introduction and Goals

My advice is to look for a good physiotherapist. I work with one that works with the national judo institute.

Re: Introduction and Goals

Yep. My injury also stems from swinging dumbbells at the gym. Over half a year ago now. The issue seems 3-dimensional movement. The elbow is only a 2 dimensional operating joint. Any (total) movement done by - say - the left arm usually has 3 dimensions. The shoulder and wrist take care of the 3rd d...

Re: Introduction and Goals

Update. In general things are moving in the right direction, but not all is great. If I look at rowing, my take on it (remember: rookie) is that it is about technique, strength, and stamina. My technique is pretty good. Or at least heading in the right direction. I can go slow and kick some ass at s...

Re: Introduction and Goals

Thanks guys. A few weeks have passed. I didn't attempt another faster 2k. Basically want to make sure the biceps to elbow tendon is fully healed. But I am training around 4 times, to 5 times a week. Up until now 2k's and 5k's, usually a mixture of some interval styles (where I go faster for 500 mete...

Re: Introduction and Goals

Found it! I also did another fast 2k and brought my PR to 8:38.2. That's 14.7 seconds faster than what I did 2 weeks ago.

Re: Introduction and Goals

So I have a question. Hope any of you can help out.

I want my screen to give me 500m splits AND give a prediction on my 2k or 5k end time.

But where do I find this?

Regards, Edwin.

Re: Introduction and Goals

Just back from a week of business travel to the USA. Couldn't fid time nor place to train. Just picked up training and did a 2k. Slow rate, 22 spm, pretty forceful on the power. 9:00.2. Not bad. I plan to do a few 5k's coming weeks ...

Re: Introduction and Goals

As long as I don't go flat out, the elbow is ok. Rowed a faster 2k again this morning. Did it in 8:52.9. Another 17.1 secs faster than before!

Re: Introduction and Goals

Basically, to make sure I give my elbow time to heal, I do one training, then take 2 days of rest. I'll do a 5k tomorrow with 2:45 to 2:50 split times.
