Had a rest day on Sunday, yesterday joined a 30 min session on Rowpro. Was supposed to be start of a new training period with a 1.52 r23. However, didn't quite go like that.

Re: 60 000 m a week is killing me

"How many meters a week do you guys row?" A lot less than 60k / week. For me rowing is just part of my workout routine, that's focused on cardio plus some moderate strength and core exercises using weights and kettlebells. The whole point of the workouts is to promote overall fitness, and if I thou...

Re: Training for 30 minute max distance

If all you want to do is improve your distance for 30 mins, this is quite simple to do. First you need to set a base line, row a couple of 30 mins to see where you are. Once you can reproduce a distance without killing yourself, extend the time to 36 mins and see if you can complete the time at the ...

Re: HR training - staying in target zone

Back in 2005 I started training to strict HR zones but they had been set through a series of blood lactate profile tests. The way I set about using the zones was to set off at a pace I thought I may be able to maintain within the max for the zone. If I reached the max before the end of the session I...
