Re: Holly's journey

Well the answer was not much, in fact it was a non starter, however today I managed another 2000m, and I was thirty seconds quicker so alls well. What with all this positive energy from rowing for the last couple of weeks I've been pretty much ignoring the elephant in the room, an object which I res...

Re: Holly's journey

2000m rowed in 13 minutes, it was actually 2019m in 13 minutes 5 seconds, but near enough to establish a pitiful baseline :lol: I'll look back on this in a year, and laugh myself sillier than I already am, but for now these are my capabilities. Now resting for ten minutes to see how much further I c...

Re: Holly's journey

Hi Janet,
Thank you for the tip, all gratefully received.
I need to explore the pm5 more, particularly the interval facility, 1000m with five minutes rest then repeat up to 5000m, maybe the way to go with my level of fitness.

Thank you Janet :D

Re: Holly's journey

I've changed my display, so it displays meters rowed which is going to be of much more use when I push myself in the 5000m a day mud challenge. I have a full page calendar detailing work days including a 7 day holiday so 25 days is doable. And now the not so good news. I'm up to 1730m in one session...

Re: February Follies 2019

Hi Holly, I will be taking part in the Mud Season Challenge - not sure yet as to whether I'll do the 5,000m or the 10,000m. Jill :) Gulp :shock: I'm going to have a try at the 5000m which is beyond my current abilities, but I'm going to have a go. Didn't know there was the option of a 10,000m as we...

Re: February Follies 2019

Anyone going to have a go at the mud challenge, I probably won't be able to complete it but I intend to give it a go

Re: Holly's journey

Thanks lindsay, So pace 500 meters it is for tomorrow. 11 days ago I could barely walk up the stairs without being out of breath, now I'm talking about pace settings, unbelievable :shock: It's amazing how your expectations of your own capabilities change over such a short period of time, I wish I'd ...

Re: Holly's journey

Ten minutes and 9 seconds, 1300 and something meters. Switched my display to pace boat today, which I think will be more useful, in my slow steady progress. Who cares how many calories burned, its not important. I take It the pace boat works off your last workout? Feeling great today, much more invi...

Re: Holly's journey

Hi sharky, thank you for that, I've been looking at YouTube clips of the pm 5, and the calorie read out is probably what I'm looking at, wavy line underneath and the time rowed which is my nemesis top left, lol. I thought I'd do one of the challenges this morning... Mud challenge... Five thousand me...

Re: Holly's journey

Well that's the first ten days done, up to eight and a half minutes screen showing 420 whatever that means lol, I know if I work harder it goes up, I'm trying to push hard, for me, up to 530 for the last fifteen seconds, and if it drops below 400 I'm being lazy, which will happen at about the three ...

Re: Holly's journey

And five minutes, toughest day yet for me, I did however have enough energy to double my stroke rate in the last fifteen seconds. Legs jelly, but not completely trashed, as in day 1. I now have two days of work so next row is on Sunday. Now I then have seven days off, so I have to stick to my own ru...

Re: Holly's journey

Thank for taking the time sharky, all the questions answered and motivation boost in one shot, amazing. Obviously I am afraid of tofu, food of the devil, along with broccoli aubergine and tapioca, which all deserve to be on the known poisons list and banned substances. My main problem is I graze thr...
