Re: Pete Plan Thread

Lost lost of ground last year with consistency or even rowing anything material. Starting over on the Pete Plan again this year, good year to start. some medication changes early last year and CFA Level 2 studies really took a toll on me. Back up to 200lbs and winded regularly. Did a couple easy row...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Been a bit since the last post. Big Bend hike mid last month and a couple fits and starts so last week I picked back up at Week 9 and rowed Week 10 last night. Trying hard to stay motivated...that's the challenge. Been doing 1000 meter warmups for a few months but never include those. Sometimes its ...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Been afk for a couple weeks. Work really in the way so while 8/20 was my last row, I picked things back up again and started again on Week 8 (where i left off) with the 8500 meter row. Tried to stay at a 2'35 pace then pushed a little near the end. It's long. It takes a long time. That's the frustra...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Week 7 (not 8 like my prior post) Rows 2 and 3. Rain here so no hiking on Sunday and I think that rest made my workout a bit easier last night. Changed our rowing schedule so we are participating in the Dog Days of Summer Challenge and that also gave me an extra day of rest. Next week, to get to 30,...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Week 8 Row 1...man, 2 months of consistent work. I was worried I was going to get bored on the longer distances, but it's a matter of focus and thinking only about form and not time nor distance remaining.

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Ended week 6 last week. With work and motivation seems like 3x per week is about all I can do with the hikes on sunday getting harder. Rowed 3x last week by ERG ran out of battery during the 3x2000m intervals. Been in a bit of a funk, made good progress and certainly improving in weight and fitness ...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Thanks Mike. I was pretty fatigued on Saturday when I rowed. Today was better - longer row and heartrate was mostly below 150...just funny how that all works. Week 6 Row 1 - 7500 meters at a pace similar to what I started out at 6 weeks ago. Tired today but not gassed. https://i.imgur.com/mkcbMga.jpg

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Week 5 Row 3 last Saturday. Hiked 7m again with 20lb pack on Sunday so no rowing until I start week 6 tonight. Saturday's row was tough. Heart rate was consistently in the mid to high 150s. Not sure why, sleep perhaps? Humidity? Diet? It really felt like a slog after the first 1000m even though I wa...

@ Tracy - wow, 10 lbs! And look at that last rep, that was huge! Very nice work. The plan is starting to pay dividends for you! Not familiar with how to edit HR, I'm sorry, not sure if that's possible.
Thanks Mike. For the first time in years I feel like I've made headway on something.

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Week 5 Row 2 - 4x800 with the last interval pushing as hard as you can. First time in the BPP where I was instructed to go all out and it wasn't alright. The last 150 meters were a challenge but I just focused on technique. Pretty high heart rate but was nice to change it up a bit I think. Certainly...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Welcome aboard Rob!

...and thanks Mike. I'll keep plugging away, wasn't too such how hard to push. Seems to be more about getting meters at the moment consistently and maybe there's some underlying improvement in fitness but I WANT MOAR! :)

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Forgot to post week 4 row 3. Some improvement in form and effort but it's still tough to row close to 2'30". I suppose being out of shape makes a big difference but when my heart rate gets to 150bpm I try to breathe and slow down. That's where things become pretty difficult to maintain and I sweat b...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Week 4 Row 2 last night before dinner - 3x1000m interval row and worked on upping the pace as Mike suggested to do during the interval training. BPP suggests to move the pace beginning next week as this weeks interval was supposed to be the same pace as Week 1 Intervals but it felt too flow when I w...

Re: Technique Feedback

Worked on no dropping the chain recently. At 22 or 23 spm it seems easier to keep the handle level but still working on incorporating the changes. Will upload a video tomorrow from the 4th week interval of the Pete Plan. I still feel though like i've got 2 left feet in all this, but hopefully there ...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

@Mike - thanks for the feedback. Rowed 3 times last week rather than 4. Had a 6 mile moderately loaded backpack hike on Sunday and wanted to be rested. It was grueling. Back on the erg for Week 4, Row 1. Still working on keeping feet flat, reduced stroke length still is odd as I get used to how unli...
