Re: Fat Noob needs starting advice

You can also have a combined total ranked, if the total matches a ranking category. For example, if you set the monitor for a workout consisting of 4 sets of 2,000 meters with 500 meter intervals, the total is exactly 10,000 meters, which can be ranked. I began doing this when I couldn't complete 10...

Re: Another fat guy new to rowing.

I think you need to have a Concept2 logbook to be able to join a team or affiliation, I may be wrong though. The logbook will record all of your rowing data, and allows you to add comments, you can upload to it by hooking up your computer to the monitor, or an iPhone to the monitor. Or, you can dire...

Re: Another fat guy new to rowing.

I started rowing the end of January and followed Concept's recommended training for newbies, slowly building up. Beginning on about 600 meters and without overdoing it moving up to 2,000+ meters comfortably in a month, I could have done more, but restrained myself as I did not want to end up with so...

Re: Fat Noob needs starting advice

Day one of the new ranking year and I completed the Global Marathon Challenge half-marathon section. Very happy, but butt is sore! Need to get better cushioning for the long row.

Re: Fat Noob needs starting advice

Hi shtm, thank you! Logbook shows my pace as exactly 2:05, I was exhausted for the next two days after, but was really happy as the first 2k was a personal best, and so was the first 5k. I'm keen to do a 2k trial next as I am sure I can get down to 8 minutes, having said that, my goal is weightloss ...

Re: Fat Noob needs starting advice

Wow, thats some high tech device. As I said, I'm no expert, I think I should look at one of those, can you send a link? My workout rate seems to be about 125-130, with the occasional higher rate if I'm trying to squeeze in a few meters. So, one team challenge done! I am really thrilled at just havin...

Re: Fat Noob needs starting advice

OMN, thank you for the footer link! I have never used bootcamp on my mac, and it is actually set up in a different room, so may consider buying a small notebook and a larger monitor, if I can convince my financial supervisor.

Re: Fat Noob needs starting advice

OMN, or anyone, how is the attachment with rankings added to your posts? It seems to be automated but I can't see anything in my profile section about this, or in FAQ.
