Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Back to it... well sort of. Been nursing injuries most of the summer so still taking it carefully. Managed to get out on the water few times in September but that door has shut now due to dark evenings... so it was to the boat club gym last night. After a warm up on the erg, then did assortment of c...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Trying to stop the rot... June, July and start of August have mostly been a write off due to injury :( have had done a few odd light sessions, but generally it been fairly crap and the highs of May are a distant memory... ...but have started back up with some gentle sessions. I had to admit to chiro...

Re: Training for long distance on water

Hi, I am planning on doing a long water race - about 50km. As it is the regatta season most of my training has been shorter pieces and short intervals on the machine but i have been doing some longer distances. Does anyone have any advice on training? Are you doing the Boston Rowing Marathon? Good ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

FM on a whim!! Nice one :) Thankfully much cooler today too. I have been sort of avoiding even considering doing an FM recently so I had a 'moment' and resolved to get a grip, not least as two other rowers who haven't done an FM, or even close to it, completed theirs on Wednesday and Thursday night...

Re: Absolute Newbie Accessory questions

Register for the online logbook so you can keep track of all your rows. If more than just you using the erg, then get a USB stick each so you each record your own rows. You can then use the Concept2 utility to upload to the online logbook. Alternatively, if you do use the Ergdata app, this can uploa...

Re: 2nd lower back injury in 5 weeks.

I share your frustration!! it's fairly soul destroying when you get to a good place on the erg to then have injury wipe it away. I have pretty much lost the whole of June and July and just when I thought starting to get back to building up the meters again, find myself at the chiropractors again tod...
