Check if you are inside the bear. :)
A very beautiful area with no civilization in sight. Something hard to get in the densely populated countries in Europe.

Re: 60 minute weight loss

14 years ago I was into marathon rowing, partly because I like longer distances partly as a means of weight control. No row shorter than half marathon. Rows up to 50km, all at stiff pace. I became very hungry indeed, losing no weight at all. This stuff can only work if you can control the voracious ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Had my first decent row today after the funk I got in at the last race.
6K: 21:44.6 (1:48.7). Excellent air but a little on the warm side.

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Belated congratulations for your performance at WIRC. Wednesday AM, for example, was 30' on the stationary cycle at a nominal 410 watts. Why do you call it "nominal"? It is completely unbelievable but one would think that bikes are the most likely to measure the power output correctly. Can you make ...

Re: Winter Olympics 2018

My favorite is the short track. Never thought much of the downnhill skiers
until I saw this training video of Shiffrin. Extremely varied training.
My favorite is when she rides the bike without pedalling (7:30 in the video):

Re: Starnberg, German long distance championships

@TwoPuddingKid:
Congratulations on your excellent performance.
It's too bad the weather was not nicer for you to have a more pleasant trip.
My back is still bothering me but not when I am rowing.
I can already laugh about my own experience. I deserve a reality check now and then.

This really is fantastic. Stuff like that worries the pension funds.
Congratulations!

Re: Starnberg, German long distance championships

The air was a little dry but did not bother me.
I checked up on my condition today in perfect air, was even worse
than in Starnberg.

Race report

Sorry for the long rant but I hope it is amusing for you though it certainly wasn't for me. Starnberg 30 minutes was the big race I prepared for and I was perfectly prepared. As a baseline I used NavHaz's 8190 in 30r20 since I did not want to be beaten by 30r20 which is quite a bit slower than a 30 ...

Re: High Intesity training for the older athlete

What do you call high intensity and how much do you do? I know it is needed and have done some before but lately done only a little, much more at the aerobic threshold. Done almost nothing faster than 2K pace, not very much at 2K pace. Generally I do about 75K a week with a couple of hours of easy b...

Re: Am I improving?

If you are in the mountains consider doing uphill jogs (it's very unlike flat running).
I do these at very slow pace, just a little faster than fast walking. Advantage: once you are up you have to get back down. This basically doubles the length of the workout more or less for free.

Fat loss: add Transport to the mix (2K pace, worried about heart attack) and mix them all.

Re: Rowing at Higher Stroke Rates

I get a little bit out of hammering the finish to the point of developing slight bruising. My theory is that it also reverses the backward momentum of the trunk thus supporting the switch to the recovery. Needless to say that is arms only. OTW rowers will do on the erg what is optimal for OTW rowing...

Starnberg, German long distance championships

Who is going to Starnberg on February 17 (30 min championships)?
It's always a good race with international participation.

I will be going if I am healthy (which currently I am).
