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 ...

Re: Introduction and Goals

An update. Had to stop for a few months, because of plantar fasciitis. Did some YouTube research, found some stretching exercises, and things are much better now. I also studied technique a bit more and over the last few weeks, in short, once a week 10 to 20 minutes sessions, trained on how to row. ...

Re: Introduction and Goals

Had my once a week Sunday morning training session. Did a 5 minute warm-up row first. Then a 500 meter race, where I brought my PR down from 2:17 to 2:12. After a few minutes, a 10 minutes low intensity recovery. I think I'll try to ramp up the number of trainings now. Go to 2 sessions a week. Well,...

Re: Introduction and Goals

Did a combination training. First 15 minutes endurance, then a 5 minutes rest. A fast 0.5k after that, then a 5 minutes rest. Finally a 2.5 minutes one notch heavier tow. That was two days ago. No aces. And when I look back I feel my technique is getting better and rowing becomes already almost a "n...

Re: Introduction and Goals

So, after a few days of recovery from Delhi Belly (yes, visit to India), I was back on the rower this morning. Did 25 minutes at a slightly lower power setting. Went nice and easy. Strokes per minute: 22. Does that sound like an okay rythm?

Re: Introduction and Goals

Just back from the gym. Took a day of rest between the previous 0,5k session and today's leisurely rowed 2k. Did the 2k in 13:13. Coming week I'll be in India. Let's see if the hotels have an Concept 2. Would be great to put at least one training session in ...

Introduction and Goals

Hi there, Thanks for having me. I was in bad shape like 3, 4 months ago. A change of diet made me feel much better and stronger. So much so that I started training again a few weeks ago. Slowly, once a week, but I have been out of shape for a long time. I am currently 49 years old. Dropped my weight...
