Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Failed 2km attempt today. Legs fell apart with 400 left! only 400 and i just could hold on which was a shame. I think 1.34.5 as my target was too ambitious. Will go again and set out for 1.34.9 and look to keep my ego in check early to see if that can help me find the elusive sub 6.20. beaten today...

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

I had my first (and I daresay, only) go at a half marathon today. My target was 1:49/500m pace, for around 1.16:30 (accounting for a little sprint at the end). My plan was gentle negative splitting all the way to the end. This went to plan, for the most part, but then as the finish line approached,...

Re: Skierg Weight Classes

There's a practicality problem with classes too. Indoor Rowing is a niche enough sport (it's not soccer!), but there are plenty of people who train seriously on the erg. As I write, there are 15576 times posted this year for 2k across all categories. For the SkiErg, there are 779. If we had several ...

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

Hit a new training 5k PB tonight. 17:58.5. Had nothing in the tank the last 1000m. I was sick all last week and missed a few ergs and had a rough one Friday night. I’ll take this one tonight.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Small weather window of opportunity this Thursday so im going to take advantage and go for the 2km. So today was the famous 2km predictor. I want to hit 1.34.5 on the day (i'll still be happy with anything sub 1.35 though) This session is 500m, 500m, 1250m all with 1 minutes rest. I wanted low 1.34...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

<> Point I was making, or trying, Skier is a strange machine, a think roughly speaking, the rower is better suited for the general population. For the rower average strenght is good enough. On the skierg thats different, I see some decent rowers pull numbers on the skier which look slow. Even for m...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

<> This was one of the most comfortable rowing sessions I've ever done, so much so that I seriously considered doing another one. It was one of those days that don't happen often enough. I'm doing an intervals session tonight, probably 1k repeats, so it was the right decision to leave it. This take...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Have been tinkering with the SkiErg and trying to figure out how to adapt WP principles (and L4 in particular) to the SkiErg. Taking 1.5 pulls as an equivalent to a rowing stroke seems to work for me, so this session was a 270-270-270-270, with target paces as follows: 24spm: 2:20 27spm: 2:16 30spm:...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Skierg. 5k repeat, yesterday did nothing, also my back played up big time. But did not effect todays session. Idea was to better fridays effort, start out the same way, to fast Stu :wink: , but keep the slow down/HD limited. Kept 145 for the first 1500, from there back to 150, and bring it home. Wa...
