Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

HM PB - 1:19:42 (-1'15'') :D Season goal #2 accomplished, sub1:20 HM (second goal was 14'' 100m, so both longest and shortest goal :) ) This effort felt absolutely great, plan was to stay at 1:54 for about 1h and then see how I feel. I had no wobble and about 10k left I felt very sure to reach the ...

Re: 50Plus - New Team

An excellent Holiday Challenge by the team - well done all! Over half the team that took part made it past 200k. There could be some late logging of meters, but these are the team stats I have just pulled out of the challenge boards this morning: 50Plus 2020 Holiday Challenge Honour Board 200k Honou...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Bragging by proxy: My younger son (9) completed the 100k challenge yesterday. He had a bit of a struggle to get over the line, courtesy of sore abs from lots of volume the day before, but slow and steady helped him get there with a day to spare. Congrats to your son that's very good going to get to...

Re: 50Plus - New Team

Hey All! The next team challenge only a week and a bit away! January Revolutions: Jan 1 - Jan 31. I've started a new job and won't be able to row as much as I did in the Fall Team Challenge. Should I resign my spot (leave team 50+) to make way for someone able to contribute more meters? David Absol...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Was going to do a 4 x 2k WP L2 session tonight but tiring day and I knew that wasn’t in me during the warm up. Wanted to do some hard yards so set the PM for a 10k and thought about stopping at every 2k point. Pushed on through and could see the projected time of 36:30. Got to the end and knocked 5...

Re: 50Plus - New Team

Latest update from the Holiday Challenge with 6 days to go. Team going great. Looks like we could also see a couple of people get on the 300k board! (if there was one B) ) The guys on ~150k plus you have this in the bag to get to 200k too! With so many rowers doing the business C2 have already hit t...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

What is this HRV you are talking about, is that some form of indicator as to how restituted you are based on your heart rate? Measured via heart rate monitor? I too wondered that when this acronym first popped up! I found this article which I thought gave good details on the subject: https://www.wh...

https://i.postimg.cc/V5MGwFDJ/IMG-20201218-081458-882.jpg Never intended as a PB, but with 2.5k to go I wanted to beat 1:18.40 (until October my longstanding PB). This is all Jo Andre's fault!! It's fair to say it was getting very tough in the last 500m, but I never considered HDing. I'm off work n...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

60 minute erg test today. Haven't done a max effort hour before, so went semi-conservative and picked 1:54 at r26. Taped over the HR display so couldn't see the 185+ HR for the last 25 mins :lol: 60:00.0 / 15836m / 1:53.6 / 238w / r26 / 180 HR / DF106 10:00.0 / 2609m / 1:54.9 / 230w / r26 / 169 HR ...

Re: Hello all - very tall newbie here

The rowing is going well. It's only Wednesday and I've rowed three times already this week, for a total of 17.5km. Here is a short video of me on the first of two back off sets doing 1000m. It's at about a 1:38/500m pace. Please critique the form :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvROm2PUNAk Going...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

First Full Marathon this morning. I had planned on doing 30k today and a full marathon next week, but I may be getting the Covid vaccine sometime in the next few weeks and if it ends up being next week I didn't want the rumored post-vaccine "hangover" to derail a FM attempt. I set the monitor for t...

Re: 50Plus - New Team

Happy to have gone past the 100k - was hoping to get to 200k, but had a trail night HM on the weekend which has really taken it out of the legs, still sore now. With working most days between now and the end of the challenge, it's going to be hard work to even get close to it ! Well done Robbie - a...
