Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

500 @1:31.7 df136 sr40 454w 1:30.5/1:31.0/1:32.5/1:32.0/1:32.0 relieved/pleased enough rather than disappointed that sub1:30 is not in my range at the moment though the steady pace suggests that there is a bit there if I can get closer to the edge. The loss of power is the new reality I suspect. Gr...

Re: Forum Flyers

Certainly is a beast Lindsay. As you say, flat out, with no pacing possible - I don't see any other option than getting up to pace as soon as, and then trying to hang on - essentially flying and hoping to not die (too much)! A bit like the 1 min but worse, especially for us 2:00+ slow coaches: we ha...

IRL April: 500m, 2:04.7, 38spm, df 116

Met my 2:05 target - just. Not a good distance for me - won't be rushing to do one of those again.

Re: Forum Flyers

It's showing on there (C2CTC) now Jack. But where are the ladies? We've now got three boats waiting to go. Chris - we still got the 8 entries to score a full team's worth for March so don't worry about it. I was certainly glad to get the 10k done. The 500m will be a good one for you I should think. ...

Re: Training in zones - monitoring and managing

Thanks again all for your thoughts on this. Lindsay - yes %HRR + RHR is the way I am doing it. In the ISS 2k Programme, UT2 is defined as 65-70%, whereas in the ISS Fast-Track Programme, it is 55-70%. Also, in the former, the boundary between TR and AN is 95%, whereas in the latter, it is 90%. So, l...

Re: Training in zones - monitoring and managing

Thanks for the replies all, much appreciated: still very much finding my way and trying to get my own thoughts in (better) order on this. According to the ISS IP pace guide, the upper boundary of UT2 effort is 60% of individual test power in watts. AT zone power is defined as 70 to 80% of 2k power. ...

Training in zones - monitoring and managing

Do many people here monitor what proportion of training time they are doing in the different training zones, both for an individual session and cumulatively for all the sessions completed over a plan or period? From what I have read, polarised training is recommended whereby the clear majority of tr...

Re: Rowing --> Running

Agree with the above. I don't know what rowing volume you've done (number of days per week, minutes per day etc), but you say you feel you've made only some strides in conditioning. You are also not a runner. Therefore I think you will not notice any significant improvement, perhaps even none at all...

Re: Study on correlation of C2 performance to OTW

Thanks both - the main point then for me is that my erg times are not in any way to be taken as being equivalent to my best potential (i.e. assuming perfect technique) OTW times in a 1x.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

3 days late, but Putney to Mortlock, 4 miles, 374 yards: don't think I quite make any of the teams (yet):

6779m, 33:05.7, 2:26.4, 25spm

Fun to set the splits at 1609m.

Re: Study on correlation of C2 performance to OTW

The erg measures Power in Watts using Newtonian mechanics, and calculates speed using W=kV³. A cube law, because the resistance of water and air are related to the square of speed, and Power = Speed x Force. The k used is 2.8 so that an erg shows approximately the boatspeed that the same oarsmen in...

Re: Forum Flyers

Great times Lindsay & Terry. Terry currently leads this month's challenge (adjusted).

Still need another 2 entries for a full complement this month.

Good to see Rolf is still in possession of all his digits :wink:

I'm hoping to be almost over a chest infection and able to log a few more metres.

Re: position of feet/technique

Something similar is said here:

Being able to get a good strong hinge at the catch seems to be the priority.
