Re: Fit person looking for Rowing WOD scores or somewhat competitive group

Www.ctc.com Best look on instagram to find rowers your level. There seems to be a good bit to gain. Your 5k does not ad up to the 500 and 2k. Also have a look at the concept rankings to get an idea. Its all social media these days.... did you mean www.c2ctc.com ? This is a monthly competition. ther...

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

Yes, finally! Holy s***, that hurt, finally able to dig deep! Although this is a "big" PB, it is not what I really wanted to hit. During March and April, I was doing really good. I jumped from 8249(set in 2013) to 8641 in one jump. Started to aim at hitting 8800, but could not do it. Realized after...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Hi everyone did you miss me? the new normal has been a challenge, my wife ended up working twice as much as normal which inturn led to me doing more dog walking and finding too many excuses not to get on the erg, last row was 16th july and before that 28th june, so back to it today with an easy hou...

Great work Ian. Super distance for 30 mins, plus as per other comment sounds like your 10k up for grabs soon as well. On 20k per week :shock: whatever else you are doing the cross training mix obviously working!

Re: Tom George first ever Brit to go sub 5:40

Oh no, Barnabe Delarze from Switzerland just tried to join the club, and pulled 5:40.0 😆I had him as one of my hot picks for next one to go under! Doh!!! So close The c2 rounding up did it. His splits combined was 5:39.9, but the monitor rounded up. That is crazy! Not really... sure it's been discu...

Re: Rowing in Zwift - suggestion to make it happen

Something I noticed today is that they are definitely going to need to keep the results separate between the sports. At the moment I am obviously rowing as a cyclist. Today I fitted my spin bike with a Garmin Speed and Cadence sensor and did a hard 20 mins spin session at lunchtime and averaged 253 ...

Re: What am I doing Wrong?

Hi all, I'm back to give a progress update, apologies for not responding sooner. I took the advice and have increased my rows to 8000m x 6 days per week (up to 840k now) with the intent to get to 10k per day within a couple of months. I seem to have moved off the weight plateau, now being 92kg, hav...

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

https://i.postimg.cc/rdpSdftJ/IMG-20200807-070232-264.jpg I think this is my eighth PB in four months. Didn't expect much today so maybe later on in the month I can get it closer to 17:15. Heat and humidity definitely played a part today and I almost HDed three times from 3k onwards. HR hit 99% as ...

Re: Rowing in Zwift - suggestion to make it happen

In terms of graphics I'm pretty sure I dont want to spend the whole time looking backwards. I would much prefer a tv camera type view like in rowpro that moves arround. As bizarre as it sounds the only time I tried OTW I hated it as the whole going backwards thing is horrible and wanted to switch t...

A Reddit thread of interest added context to what rowing in Zwift could look like.

Re: Ergdata not syncing

If all your rows are in the PM5 memory then the easiest way to get them into the online logbook would be to use the Concept2 Utility on a laptop and connect the laptop to the PM5 using a USB A to B cable. You can then transfer the lot in one go. See this link. Hard to tell why your ErgData not synci...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

So, my 25-year-old son has been racking up some impressive times (his 5K PB is around 19:14) since we started quaran-rowing when I bought a Model D in late April, and I've been steadily improving as well. I haven't felt the urge to do any time trials since early June, and he's been pushing me to ge...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

LOL, OK, I decided I was going to try and hit a 1:48 pace exactly and I did just that which equated to 8330M. Thought about pushing for more but after the CTC on Tuesday I was just hoping to hit the 1:48 pace and I did pretty much the whole thing at that pace - very flat, especially for me as being...
