Re: Age related decline

Good topic and one I can relate to :D I've been at this erging lark across three decades now 40s, 50s and 60s starting when I was 45 back in 2002 but seriously in 2003.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Had a bad session yesterday. Started a 60r20 with the plan to sit on 1.57 which should have been comfortable, after ten mins I knew I wouldn't get much further, seemed like a low sugar problem with low hr and feeling shaky. I've had this in the past when not eaten enough through the day. Binned the ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

You need to be in the right mindset. And even when you are and do TT, but over different distances pretty far apart, you are not really.

Re: If you ever wanted evidence of the power of the mind...

Taken to an extreme it's what Zatopek used to do with running. He used to run a lap of a track at target longer distance pace, and then recover on the next lap. And repeat over and over and over again. You probably know but there's bound to be some threads on this forum about it. Isopower efforts d...
