Sorry to hear you are sick too. I have done good avoiding it this year ( and last couple years) but got me this time. I was in pretty bad shape last night. A tad better this morning but I don't see any erging in my near future. Even if I feel better by beginning of next week wont allow me to really be trained and ready for comp. so just going to rest until I am better and then get back at it.
Thanks, sorry to hear you're definitely sick now, but at least you were able to have this great race result. Now it's time to rest.
I think I can start training tomorrow, very easy of course, so 5 days off the erg, no big problem I guess. And to see it positive, these rest days helped my back a lot, after the 100m TTs and the most stupid training day I ever had on the erg (short before getting sick, already didn't feel well, tightened back, so I thought it's time for a 2k TT, quit at 1k, but decided to try a 500m TT, HD at 300m, back and mind destroyed :oops: ).
Yeah just looking at this as some time to rest and then will get back to it - hopefully will feel OK to do the 1K World Sprints challenge. I wasn't aware of your "stupid" training day - some times we just cant help ourselves no matter what our bodies are telling us.
Very true. It was the day before I got sick, both kids were already sick, not enough sleep, mentally completely not preparated for training, so "stupid" is the shortest way to describe it :wink:
I hope you're fit soon, esp. for the 1k, best of luck!

Take care Martin, the rest will do you some good but don't rush back into training
Thank you mate, I had very few rest days lately so it's a chance to get fully recovered. Did my first easy 30' session today (R18 2:10) and it felt good, but like you said, I'll start slow, no need to risk a relapse.
How is your new training plan working? The pacing looks a bit strange atm, SS very slow and the hard pieces super fast, I'm curious what's coming.

Come back stronger Martin....you're an inspiration to many.
Thank you mate, that's very nice to hear! :D
I'm feeling much better, but this week I'll start easy, I think in 1-2 weeks I'm back at 100%.

BTW Lance, Didn't you run a prediction algorithm just a few weeks before your race last wk? I think it came out within a sec of your final result. So, maybe you were a little overly optimistic, No ?

I did my 1402m for Carole this morning and really struggled to do a 1:39.8. Legs felt empty and I couldn't generate any power when I tried. First weights session in about four months yesterday morning probably took more of a toll than I expected.

In my infinite wisdom I then programmed in 12,618m (9 × 1402m to make it 10 reps in total) after about one min rest and struggled my way through that too. 1:58.8 average @r20 but my stroke and pace weren't consistent enough despite the splits looking like they were and it was one of those rowing in syrup days. It felt more like it was 1:48

The only good thing about injury/ illness is that it can provide a much needed rest that you otherwise wouldn't take.

Training programme is getting more sensible from now on e.g next week there is a 6 mins / 4 / 2 / 4 / 6 @ r24 / r26 / r28 / r26 / 24 with split targets ranging from 1:49 to 1:39.

I'm wondering if I'm getting a cold, or something similar...not Coronavirus though :wink:

I ran a few scenarios based on recent performances and the numbers were largely pointing to a 7:02 to 7:07 window. If I hadn't HD'd during the race I would have landed smack in the middle of that range. My effort to try and force a 6:58 was certainly optimistic in the face of the data I was seeing with my own eyes... Lesson learned.

Recalculated my UT2 at 150 instead of 130. Had two days off after not feeling well, got in 8k this morning. Definitely feel better about working out at the 140-150 range than 130. It's still not exactly strenuous but at least now I feel like I actually went to the gym instead of just sitting on a rower for an hour.

I'm amazed though at how long it actually takes your body to get over being sick. I was back at work 2 weeks ago. But my HR to Watts ratio is just now finally getting back to normal.

The last couple days i've spent starting with a morning workout on the heavy punch bag... feeling it now in my arms/shoulders. Also been doing some barbell stuff and weighted backpack training. A little sore today from everything i've been doing, but whenever i feel that i know things are working :)

Recovering today, back on the erg tomorrow for a steady 30mins, keeping a HR cap @ 140 :idea:

My goals are simply to keep fit/get fitter and continue to enjoy rowing on the C2 :)

This sounds like a very tough session, and I estimate the 6' are 1:49, the 2' 1:39 and the 4' somewhere in the middle, so this will be faster and longer than your 6k PB!? I hope there are rests between the splits :lol:

Yesterday was a steady 30r22 - 7767 - 1.55.8 - 22 - 149 end HR

Up at 5.00am this morning and was in London on site for about 10.00am (about 180 mile drive) back home for 4.00pm :D

Did a 10k r22

10k - 38.19.3 - 1.54.9 - 22

2k - 7.39.8 - 1.54.9 - 22 - 133 end HR
2k - 7.39.8 - 1.55.9 - 22 - 141
2k - 7.39.9 - 1.55.9 - 22 - 146
2k - 7.39.9 - 1.55.9 - 22 - 152
2k - 7.39.9 - 1.55.9 - 22 - 153

Still feeling the after effects of the lurgy earlier in the month, HR a tad high but getting better.

Was looking back over the years and dawned on me that this race in Honk Kong was 10 years ago, where does time go? Only did one more race after that between then and now. That race ended in 6.29 on very little training, was a Hong Kong record with a prize of HK$1000 but wouldn't give it to me because I wasn't HK resident :lol: Had been living in China for about 18 months at that time.
