So be aware of where to edit the content of reactions. Th logic is:
1. "[quote with is id etc.]" #START
2. the content (which might of course include others quotes which also have start and end markers
3. "[/quote"] #END

And what helps if you are uncertain is to first use the preview button.
――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――↑↑↑↑
Up there is a little ["] button. Use that.

Please trim the quotes to avoid thread clutter. Be careful to get the [quote] and [/quote] tags to match up if you're trimming quotes.

Embedded quotation is a PITA to understand leave alone edit! For the manual gearbox types who easily tire of pruning the product of the bunny ears button @ top right hand of entered posts by select/cut or fwd/backspace delete in their reprise, there is a simple excerpting sequence:

in Poster X’s post, Select/Copy desired excerpt from post.

In Post Reply, type <Poster X wrote (or) writes:>

1 or 2 carriage returns.

Click the html bunny ears button directly above posting box and bracketed html quotation tags appear.

Place cursor in the space between the Start and End quotation tags and Paste desired excerpt.

Submit (or Preview to check your work). [See example ⬇️ ]

I checked my work and got a surprise! Those markup tags are always charged and never safed, :lol:

Above is the output I got by either copying or typing Citroen’s sentence. How does he deactivate the tags in his original post without giving them a soaky bath? Oh please tell us, Doug.

Went down the rabbit hole this morning seeking the magic that strips the ⏸ tags of their text markup function and invisibility Is it the case that the matrouska’d italicize tags are uniquely capable of effectIng the uncloaking?

(I know this is a vastly off topic but the Planners need some time for rowing so maybe will forgive?)

Hi Everyone -
My mentor suggested I start posting to keep track of progress but mostly because he said you are a great group of people.

Pre-COVID, I worked a lot and didn’t have much time to exercise. Then March, I had to cancel my vacation and got a Concept 2 Rower instead. It arrived March 28 and I jumped into the April Challenge completing it on a lot of Advil and with blisters. But health wise, I felt awesome so I kept rowing.

I did the 1/2 Marathon but my recovery time was 2 weeks. The recovery gets longer after 50!

For endurance and more strength I am going to jump into this Pete Workout!

Excited!

RayofSunshine, you are not the only sunbeam to pass this way. There is another member who goes by the nom d’erg RayOfSunshine. Note the capital ‘O’ in his handle. Haven’t seen his posts recently but If and when he posts, one or both of you and perhaps some others of us are going to be scratching (y)our heads. Forewarned is forearmed and welcome to the forum.

Now everyone is scared to post again...... :evil:

I finished week 10 with a good
8k 2:07.2 @23spm
Week 11 BPP
1) 10k 2:09@23spm
2) 8x 500m rest 2 min didn't went like planned target was 1:48 for the first 7 intervals
1-5 1:48.1- 1:48.5 @28spm
6 struggled with breathing and on the last 100m l had to stop. I don't now what was the issue maybe my asthma is responding to hard intervals. I finished with 4:07
7 1:49
8 1:45.4 @ 29 spm
3) 8k 2:08 @ 23spm

So overall not the best week but I'm happy that I have reached 10k with the same pace.

Pascal, you are clearly not easily deflected from the task at hand. Good on you! I apologize to all the currently active Planners on behalf of those, myself foremost, who indulged a pedantic and disruptive devotion to the communicative powers of HTML tags.

Hey Everyone - I just got my rower in June, a few days after spraining my left ankle. Before SIP, I was bicycling to work 7 mi each way and swimming after work (7-10K yds/week). Of course, all the pools are still closed and there's not much incentive to bike to the office since it's closed (and I have a lot more workload anyway - starting my days at 7 or 7:30 and going to quite late with no time for breaks).

I did my first 3 workouts last week and my ankle is tolerating it pretty well and I'm looking for an easy way to get back into shape, having gained 30 lbs since March.

Reading through these discussion forums - I have to confess: I have yet to find a good basic primer. I don't want a 300 page PDF but some of the terms are super confusing and it's not clear where I should focus my attention.

I found the Pete Plan Beginner 24 week page - and put it into a 1- page spreadsheet so I can print it out and cross things off -- https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

I've got my Garmin HRM strap connected to my PM5, and I have the Erg app on my phone and syncing to Garmin Connect... not really sure what details or metrics I should pay most attention to (other than heart rate).

Looking for links -- is there a short list somewhere?

BPP Week 9

Tuesday : 9k, 2:19.7 @21 spm
Wednesday: 4x800m (2mn rest), 2:08.5 @25 spm
Saturday: 8k, 2:18.3 @22spm

Not really motivated by the optional sessions which were just more distance.

BPP Week 10

Tuesday: 9.5k, 2:18.9 @24 spm
Wednesday: 3x2k (4mn rest), 2:15.8 @26spm
Friday: 8k, 2:17.7 @22spm
Saturday: 8k, 2:17.6 @21spm

I'm trying to add some 1h of low intensity sessions 2 times per week to see if it helps even more. But it's pleasant to be able to do more distance with almost less effort. This week is 10k week \o/.

You guys - I have no idea HOW you do 21 spm - just pushing off with my legs and not pulling too hard, I am at 24-28 spm -- I have to really pause as I push / lean back / pull and reverse - is that normal?

I did 5000 m tonight -- 2:52 pace (vs 2:15 to 2:30 of my previous sessions) and managed to keep my HR avg at 124 ... but at this level, I feel like I should be doing 2-3 30 minute sessions per day (bicycling to the office 24-27 minutes w an average HR of 155 there and 169 back is what I'm used to).

The Peter Plan Beginner doesn't specify HR or SPM -- and I have no idea what to target.
