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.

Re: Introduction and Goals

Took another 2 day rest and rowed a new 2k just now and did it in 9:11.0. Pretty darn happy with that result! 12.7 secs faster than any previous run. And I didn't even push it!

Re: Introduction and Goals

It will also give the tendon more time to slowly grow stronger. So, yes, here it is: 2 months of slower, lower intensity workouts. More time to perfect my technique and to build up stamina.

Re: Introduction and Goals

Not so good news. I have been walking around with pain in the elbow for some time now. Half a year ago I trained with some dumbels in the gym. Since then, whenever I used my left biceps strongly, it hurt. Ok on longer, slower runs, but whenever I did more strength oriented workouts on the c2, I felt...

Re: Introduction and Goals

Did the 5k on Saturday, then a slow recovery 2k on Sunday. Started this morning with another 2k. First 1k slow, then faster. Brought me to 9:29.1. Only 5.4 seconds slower than my current PR. Given that I could quite easily pull 2:15 splits on the last two sections, I expect to be able to perform a 9...

Re: Introduction and Goals

Thanks! Much appreciated! I'll dive in, 'cause I love a challenge. Even though 21k may be stretching it a bit for now. I mean, I just did my first 5k this morning (27:26.7) and feel I need to put in more meters before take up a challenge. If all feels good, maybe another 5k tomorrow. I am afraid to ...

Re: Introduction and Goals

All right, here's another update. I have my own c2 now. What a luxury! It allows me to row more often. Currently on a one day training, one day rest kinda scheme. Watched more video's, did a few training runs at 2k. Yesterday, I decided to take a real swing at things and go for a higher power, faste...

Re: Introduction and Goals

So here is another update. In the US right now. In a hotel with an C2 and I have basically used it the last few days to train a bit. A few 10 minute rows, that's all, because I am at a trade show and need to stand on my legs the remainder of the day, which is in itself quite tiring. This morning, I ...
