Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

2k this morning 9:29@150bpm, decided my elbow ain't all better. Back on the elliptical for the balance of the hour.
Elliptical is turning out better than the treadmill for bulk HR, as there's no walk/run gap.

Re: new to running - HR recovery

I think getting wore out was from letting my HR spike too high. It makes for a lot more fiddling but if I keep to 5mph I don't overshoot but a few bpm after switching back to walk. It's just a lot of switching if I want to stay between 140 and 150bpm. If I was running at 7mph and switched back to wa...

Re: new to running - HR recovery

Walking on flat treadmill peaks out around 115 bpm. Elevation ends up aggrevating big toe arthritis. I'm not taking 'breaks', as in stopping. Just switching between run and walk.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

4x2k this morning. I did row a 9:35.6 at 149 BPM, but I've mostly been running the past week. Still prefer the rower, but trying to do both and running it taking all my energy right now. Once I get up to where I can run continuously under 150bpm I think I'll be able to alternate daily, but for now, ...

new to running - HR recovery

So I'm trying to 1) increase my UT2 training volume and 2) start running. Only I'm not yet running continuously. I'm getting better, but my HR will still shoot past where I want to be working out. My UT2 number is around 150 and I usually use 130 as my recovery number. This usually makes for a 2 min...

Re: Newbie: Eating crisps (chips) and starting to row

I mostly said that to underscore what was said earlier. Watch out for overtraining and motivation.

For me, I think the first couple weeks of running are just going to suck period. And it's been good to give my elbows and shoulders a rest. Another week or two and I think I can do both alternatively

Re: Newbie: Eating crisps (chips) and starting to row

I'm trying to add running in with rowing. Alternating. And I definitely hit my wall for my current fitness level. Which was disheartening because I've made a lot of progress rowing. I basically have no 'easy' running. I really do want to be able to run though for "personal reasons" (like I said, be ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I got 8 hrs sleep, but 4:55 is still early. Barely kept my eyes open long enough to get to the gym. Did a steady state 66bpm cardio session. ;)

Re: Toe socks are worth every penny

Not rowing - running. Sorry I thought I mentioned that. Never had a problem rowing either.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Been trying to add in running in between rowing days. I was also trying to up my UT2 volume at the same time. It's just too much. Skipped rowing this morning because I was wiped out after running about 7 miles yesterday. Kept it to an average HR of 140, (run until 150 bpm, walk until 130 bpm - neith...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Squeezed in a treadmill wog tonight (mostly spent my free Saturday trying to get projects done). Half an hour, 5 min warmup, then run until 150bpm, walk until 120bpm. Pretty much blew any notion of heart rate equivalency comparison out of the water. 150 on the rower feels like about 130 on the tread...

Re: Not getting much force from my legs

I find if I'm rowing to a HR cap, I have trouble getting power out of my legs. Like if I'm trying to lower my output, the arms end up doing more work than the legs. Alternatively, if I try to get a strong leg drive, my heart rate starts up into the UT1 territory.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Recalculated my UT2 at 150 instead of 130. Had two days off after not feeling well, got in 8k this morning. Definitely feel better about working out at the 140-150 range than 130. It's still not exactly strenuous but at least now I feel like I actually went to the gym instead of just sitting on a ro...

Re: Newbie: Eating crisps (chips) and starting to row

Skin fold is worse than biompedance. It can't measure visceral fat at all.
