A pure sprinter will never become super aerobic and vice versa.
After doing a lot of longer work after my injury, I can 100% confirm this :lol:
Hahahahahahahaha. After recently trying, and failing miserably, to invent a new strategy for a one minute sprint i.e. r45-49 I can also confirm this!!!

Its a cough we get, due to be very out off breath, a lot of often cold/dry air irritates the lungs. Its not erg specific, runners, skaters etc also get it. The very anaerobic stuff does it. 3/4 minutes work. Longer work much less, breathing is different.
I have only had it twice, but it was due to rowing for far too long in an air conditioned gym in November as the air con was pulling in cold air from outside. It was horrible as it felt like my lungs weren't working properly. An asthma inhaler before I started and once more halfway through seemed to help.

I'm always late on the congrats, but Lance, that's a huge improvement. Awesome stuff. Congrats!

@ Paul - A couple of years ago, I missed my PB by .3 or so. I'd rather be on the .3 or .4 side of breaking a PB than the other way around. Nice work! A personal best is still just that. Congrats!

re this erg cough that is being spoken about?? i cough a lot when erging but i believe its due to low blood pressure which my doc spoke to me about a while ago. i also tend to cough a reasonable amount during the day when doing stuff and that is phlemmy but again i thought it was low blood pressure.
Its a cough we get, due to be very out off breath, a lot of often cold/dry air irritates the lungs. Its not erg specific, runners, skaters etc also get it. The very anaerobic stuff does it. 3/4 minutes work. Longer work much less, breathing is different.
Congrats on the PR -- never easy

I had thought I was the only one who suffers from the erg cough. I tend to treat it by doing most of my erging outdoors on my balcony (less dry than indoors and I can spit the phlegm I regurgitate over the railing). I also have a big water bottle which I spike with lemon juice and drink voraciously from whenever I get a break. The lemon juice cuts through the mucus. If I have to be indoors, I make sure I have a towel or two to spit into.

I tend to get it whenever I go really hard on anything from 1k to 5k. (The last 1k of a hard 5k can be really annoying).

@DavidA - Thanks :) Was hoping not to fade at all :lol:
@Gammmo - Congrats on your 1K pb :) Nice finish as well.
@Boomer - Nice 2K, Congrats on your PB!
@JohnWalters - Great 10k, nice improvement :)
@lancecampeau - Congrats, Great progress on the 2K!

I’m currently doing 1k training, but had time for a TT today. Ended up with a new 4 minute wr for age class 40-49 on the skierg. 30m better than my previous record. The plan was only to just cross 1300m, but with 1min left I felt very good and went for a proper sprint to the finish line.

If only it was easy as you make it seem. The power you produce is enough to light a few houses. Unbelievable effort
