Re: Pete Plan Thread

Once again, lots of helpful information in here since my last login. I am taking notes like crazy. Thanks all. @Gaucho1 - Congratulations on your 6KTT PB. @ RowerGal - That's a very solid 1500 X 5, brutal row. Is it me (I'm bad at math) or is your 5K PB time a soft target?? I know my 5K PB time is ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Today: OTW training. First up was an 8k piece in the 8+ with intermittent breaks to turn, so I guess you could say it was 4×2k with about a minute rest. Then 10k technique work in the 8+. 4k in the 1×. Difficult conditions today, really windy so I decided to call it a day pretty soon! First time on ...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Great job Mike! Good to see you back on form and really testing what you can do!
David, I have no idea. Best for someone like Henry to step in on this one! In my opinion you're doing great on the Pete plan, and until you hit a wall I don't see any reason for you to back off.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Sold stuff Rod! Today: After yesterday's slightly disappointing 5k I decided I'd get back onto the erg and get the times back on track: 30' SS. Was meant to be 2×30 but I was getting a really sorry bum so cut it down to one! 30:00 7355m @2:02.3 r22 I feel like my rating is creeping higher without me...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

5k TT: 19:21 5000m @1:56.1 r26 Not what I'd wanted but the coaches surprised me with this one. I am actually not too disappointed as I have had 4 days off any real exercise and have been really sapped of any energy and sleep by a straight week of practice exams. I'm sure if I'd not had the time off ...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Hello all, I'm only a week into rowing on my new erg and just started BPP. I thought I was in relatively good shape until I started reading these boards and looking at the numbers. Looks like I have a lot of work to do. I'm hoping someone can take a quick glance at my latest 5k and see if something...
