Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Hi Mike, thanks for your interest. FYI my ‘peceived’ lack of endurance is only from comparing my graph line against a graph line of the 60-64s 2k WR. For most of the graph, my line runs parallel (and below) with the 2k WR line except between the 6k and 60min points. Between these points my line drop...

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)

Basing my current training on the Concept Training manual 110,000m Marathon training plan and today was a 5k with a difference. Changed the session slight...

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...
