Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Another battle lost A straight 20k to-day at 256w except I bailed out at just over 12k. It wasn’t because I wasn’t going to make the target rather I just lost the mental battle to keep going. :roll: The final straw came when my bum started to ache. I’d already made a foam handle as my hands were sti...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Finally got the Sub 7 HM done to-day. Made a mental note of the data at 10k and 60’, also stopped at 60’ to write down everything as I needed a 60’ distance for my Jensen Power Profile. A quick slurp of water then back on to finish the HM. Although the 6k and 60’ I did for the Jensen Power Proile we...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Ha nice to see the AWL pyramid again Mike, I'd forgotten about that little session. Use to be a favorite of mine, might even put it into a training programme for next year. :idea: Again did’nt have any thoughts on what to do on the erg yesterday. Started the day thinking I’d do the sub 7 HM but binn...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Christmas eve gave the 6k with 5k split another go after a 5 min warm up. Crapped out twice, mainly as my heart wasn’t really in it. Nothing Christmas day or Boxing day other than food and drink :wink: 27/12 did a 20’ Fletcher on 230w start 28/12 Did’nt have any thoughts on what I was going to do un...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Mugged myself this morning to get a 5k done. Set up the monitor for 6k with a 5k split and just told myself to do it as a Fletcher warm up. At 3k, binned the ‘warm up’ routine and just went pretty much full bore for 2k, holding around 350w to bring a 5k time in just under 18 minutes. Paddled the las...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Was going to kill 2 birds with one row to-day, well I would have if I hadn’t have had a snipers HD. :roll: Decided to do a 6k for my Jensen Power Profile but set the splits for 5k to pick off something for the IRL. Looked at a the 50-59s and 60-69s BR and WR just in case :wink: , settled on a target...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Not for me Bojam, I've enough ad hoc stuff with the Sub 7 ITC, IRL and CTC to fit into my training programme without 'climbing' all over the world :lol: Good to see you Rod (and Carol) even though it was far too fleetingly. To-days efforts Meant to warm up with my normal competition warm up but was ...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Thought I'd try and get in the habit of getting back on the forum more regular. Started writing my own 'blog' again so just cut n pasted it here for anyone interested. Did mean to row yesterday but had a funny ‘pain’ whilst showering prior to ENT. Left side above the hip, in retrospect felt like a m...
