Re: Your music legends

In the 10's and 20's, Jazz took hold and I listen to that more than anything else. I lean towards the improvisational stuff especially piano and bass centered material. I love how different we all are, as improvisational jazz is one of the few types of music I can't enjoy. I like my jazz to be more...

Re: Your music legends

Oops. I got my decades confused. Dave Matthews came on the scene in the mid 90s. I just watched a recording of the Letterman performance. SO GOOD!

Re: Your music legends

I've never been into specific tracks and tend to gravitate to the less popularized tunes, so I'm going to stick with the artists that inspired me. In the 70's, Led Zeppelin was it, although my very 1st album was Meatloaf's Bat Out of Hell. I got a new stereo system when I was 13, I was at the store ...

Re: Open Water Rowing

Thanks for the tips Tsnor! I definitely hope to make OTW part of my routine. The small club I'm working with was just at a regatta on the James River last weekend. I'll ask if they've ever been up to Philly. While we're working with an 8-man shell, only yesterday did we have all 8 of us pulling stro...

Correction, the St. Mary's River is off the Potomac River a few miles northwest of where the Potomac meets the Chesapeake Bay.

Re: Open Water Rowing

I discovered a community on the water rowing club the weekend before last and signed up for a week long 8-man sweep boat training program that started this Monday. This is on the St. Mary's River off the Patuxent River, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. I started erging in the summer of 2020 and ha...

Re: weight loss question

Similar to Rick, I lost 50 pounds focusing on living healthier. The weight loss just came along for the ride. Being healthy and being thin are not necessarily related. - Learn about nutrition, and know what food science indicates provides health benefits to most people - Experiment a bit to find wha...

Re: Pondering the Beginner Pete Plan

BPP 2/2 this morning: 4 x 750m 2 mins rest, instrux are same pace as 500m reps in previous week but no faster. I thought I'd overcooked the 500m's at 2:01.6 so approached this one with trepidation and was ready to drop the pace if necessary. In the event ... achievement unlocked, even had to thrott...

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

Since getting hooked on Pilates my rowing has taken a bit of a hit, but I did achieve a 2k PB this past Sunday with a time of 8:05.5. For the 1st 750 I was on pace for < 8 minutes, but was unable to sustain it. Previous best 2k was 8:08.1. Now that it seems that Pilates is improving my fitness level...

Re: Personal Best Curse

I believe that my initial focus on achieving a PB every time I picked up the handle had a significant negative impact on my fitness goals. At first, I was setting new PB's almost every time. When that was no longer the case, as was bound to happen, my motivation dropped. Furthermore, I was overdoing...

Re: Breathing question

While rowing, I just breathe. I don't think about it, and I doubt very much that it is synchronized with my stroke.

I've thought about it when not rowing and have briefly attempted to synchronize, but it feels forced and unnatural.

10k today, so I'm glad to report that although this covid varient made me feel really rubbish, I'm back on 10k rows without anything lingering or residual weakness.. Phew. Anyway I'm carrying on to see how many 10ks I can get done in March and use that number as my target to beat next year. Feeling...
