Re: RowPro disconnecting at online rowing screen

I had a similar problem. RowPro would drop me every time I tried to row in an on-line session. Rowing standalone was fine. Finally I did a total reset of my PM5 and it fixed the problem. I also re-updated my firmware on the PM5 after the total reset. On the C2 website there are instructions on how t...

Re: Any Concept 2 owners use RowPro?

I use RowPro for rowing with others. It keeps things interesting and fun. It is motivating to row with others and encourages you to try a little harder. For me I could care less if I come in last or behind. Now they have an option for a permanent license instead of monthly. The only time you need to...

Re: Long journey ahead ......

Based on forum suggestions I just purchased a Wahoo Tickr. I have been rowing actively for about a year now and after trying a Fitbit I now realize that my goal of weight loss can be optimized by managing heart rate in my workouts. Up to now the sessions have largely been based on how I feel without...

Acceptable logging of HM FM 100k 200k

I have completed a HM this season and plan to do a FM in a couple of weeks. The question is what is considered acceptable for completing the piece in terms of rest periods? I was able to do the HM straight through in about an hour and 45 minutes. However the notion of sitting on the erg for almost 4...

Re: start the Fat Feighting :/

This is my advice. Forget about fancy things. Keep things simple. You have to do things you can carry on for life while feeling comfortable with them. Example about dieting: Instead of intermitent fasting, miracle shakes, or whatever diet you can think of...Stop drinking anything but water while ea...

Re: Significantly overweight - Rowing technique

It is great that you are working on the weight by rowing. It does sound like you are putting a lot of time into the effort. I was in the same situation about a year ago. Had not rowed in 15 years and was 285lbs. Found out I was diabetic at that time. I decided rowing was a good exercise as the docto...

Re: Training for 2k in 2 weeks need advice

I like the idea of doing 500 and rest 2 min negative splits tearing off 1 second each time. I think you are right that I can cut back on some time. This week the focus will be on speed.

Re: Training for 2k in 2 weeks need advice

Did the first session today of 2k x 3. Very good news as I turned sub 8:00 on the first and third of the intervals. Dis a 5 minute rest between each with very light rowing just to recover and stay loose. Now I need to look at how I can get some speed into the mix. It just seems very hard to pull a s...

Re: Training for 2k in 2 weeks need advice

To all the responders I have to say a big THANK YOU.... The suggestions here are exactly what I was looking for. The idea of knowing how to pace and getting used to the speed are at the core of the prep for the race. Today I will do 3x2k sessions and see how they go. Tomorrow will be a steady sessio...

Training for 2k in 2 weeks need advice

I just decided to enter a 2k indoor competition. At 61 years old I will me in the veteran group. The goal is to go sub 8:00. I have been actively rowing 5 days/week doing mostly 30 minutes or 10k. I have completed a 10k in just under 42 minutes pace 204.9. The problem is not having done any short an...

Re: Rowchooser.sdf Workout type invalid error

Well it looks like I was able to resolve the problem on my own through determination. The PM5 must have had some type of corrupted file. I had to wipe the firmware and any existing data then re-install. I had to run the firmware clean install a couple of times. Now it appears to be working so lets h...

Re: Rowchooser.sdf Workout type invalid error

Ok I brought the computer and cable to a friends place. Plugged it in and things work perfect. Based on this I can only put the fault on the new PM5. I will place another call to Concept and see if they are willing to replace it. I will them pray that the PM5 will operate properly.

Re: Rowchooser.sdf Workout type invalid error

Ok so far no progress. Both Digital Rowing and Concept seem to have no clue about this problem. I scanned my PC for the file in hopes that I could find it and look at it with an editor. Apparently the file is embedded in the PM5. Since I have not been able to find any other users of RowPro who have ...

Re: Rowchooser.sdf Workout type invalid error

I am totally frustrated. Joined a session today to do a 30Minute. Despite seeing my boat on the screen and completing the 30 minute session it listed me as DNF. This is too bad as I have a strong following on Facebook of local rowers anxious to do on-line sessions. If I can get this bloody thing to ...
