Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Missed PB opportunity?! Did a 10K yesterday - was tired and had done a hot and hard CF workout Saturday so original plan was for a more SS row with a 1:55 average (still can never do a really slow/easy session). Started out faster than planned but then settled into a 1:55 pace eventually but first ...

Re: Focusing on the PM and your pace vs not watching and/or letting your mind wander

You can hide all infos on your PM except the meters remaining by some sticky notes or so, I believe I've read here in the forum that some guys do this from time to time. Myself, I won't do this, I would most likely start way too fast and slowly die in pain :D Hadn't thought about covering the PM wi...

Re: Focusing on the PM and your pace vs not watching and/or letting your mind wander

I can't row without looking at the PM. At SS sessions I always have a plan what watts and SPM I want to do, I always get too fast when distracted for some time. For fast sessions it's even worse, the pace can be way to fast or slow without looking at the PM. I don't find it challenging psychological...

Re: Focusing on the PM and your pace vs not watching and/or letting your mind wander

If so, then you are not going at 2k plus 5. That reference being is used for a real max effort. Absolute pace does not matter so much. A max effort is a max effort, nomatter what pace. Of course by definition neither a 2k pace, nor a 2k + 5 pace can be a max effort. Clearly 2k+5 is slower than 2k, ...

Re: When is it time to take a day off?

Hi, I’m curious when others feel it’s time to take a rest day. I know I’ve read that 1 day per week is sort of mandatory. But somehow I’ve now done about 3 weeks without a rest day and I’m pretty sure I could use a rest day. It got me thinking; how do others decide its time for a rest day? General ...

Thank you very much guys, I hope I can meet your expectations :lol: @ Dino: I hope you are fully recovered, how is your training going on?

https://i.postimg.cc/bD2168VD/20190719-073019.jpg Automatic pilot this morning. Not much energy, still not fully over this cold, and breathing was a struggle too. Tried to keep under 145 and failed Apart from that I quite enjoyed it and it was one of those days where the metres seemed to disappear ...

You guys are animals.... I've just started properly a few weeks ago. Previous 2k from a few months ago was 8:07, just did a 7:55. As I posted in my beginners thread I'm hoping to get this under 7 minutes before 2020. (I know it's unrealistic but I'm incredibly unfit so hoping that a pure increase i...

Nothing... i've injured my elbow with the weights. Agony, can't even hold a cup of coffee in my left hand :(
That's bad to hear, hope it's just a short-term injury and you're back 100% fit soon!
All the best!
