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

Didn’t row yesterday due to bowling, and felt good today so I decided to try one hour for the first time, having only done 10k before. Feel really good about this result. Once I realized with around 20 minutes left I could hit 13k, I buckled down a bit. 1:00:00.0 13,021m 2:18.2 132 755 22 12:00.0 2...

Re: Heart Monitor Question

Yep - the TickR for me too - the Garmin works as well and there are some BT ones too that work with the PM5 - have been a lot of talk in the threads You need a chest strap (or upper arm) not a wrist - they just don't work. This may help https://quantifiedrowing.com/ I also like the TickR. The Apple...

Re: Rowing after a meal

How do you handle it when circumstances beyond your control force you to postpone a meal such that the time when you can eat is much closer to the start of your planned workout, and you unfortunately don't have the flexibility to delay the workout? Do you 1) Not eat at all and row, 2) Eat just a sm...

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

Did my first marathon row in 2:59:36. No real training for it, other than trying to incorporate much longer row sessions - 18k in the mornings, another 6-8k in the afternoons. Occasionally doing 1/2 marathons. The worst part is the numbness in the upper hamstrings and buttocks - with bubblewrap and...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Fcuk. I seem to have had another motherfcuking seizure. It would be hard to overstate how fcuking depressing it is. The good news is that I don't seem to have bitten through my tongue this time.... It had been quite a few months since the last one and I thought I was doing well with managing the di...

David A 7,535 m :shock: Why the shock? David It was an unusual number for you....four digits instead of five - still respectable and worthy. :D That's what happens every year once we switch the clocks. Sunset on Friday is too early for me to row much before the Sabbath starts. (Most of the time I'm...

Re: Half marathon training

I have been having some trouble with what I thought was my PM3 but was in fact the cord that goes to the monitor. It stopped me dead in my tracks during the Fall Team challenge. I was able to replace it myself and am back to rowing. Now that it's cold outside and the beach is no longer an option I ...

It is really surprising how much time it adds on when you stop for a short period of time, that's why I don't stop unless I absolutely have to.
Same with me. It comes as quite a shock the first time you stop, and you see how quickly the split time drops.

Re: Broke my knee in 2018 - 1 MILLION METERS TODAY!

In February 2018, I broke my left tibia plateau skiing (basically my knee). Two operations, 3 months of not walking, 2 months of physio and one conversation with my surgeon telling me not to run for exercise ever again later, I decided to start rowing again for the first time in probably 15+ years ...
