Hi,
I started the topic 'the ideal resistance' and learned there for the first time about the draf factor. The drag factor is displayed on the monitor, if you press rest and ok buttons at the same time and then row a few strokes.
The reasons for the change are also given in that topic, though opinions differ.
Before starting that topic I allways rowed with the damper level at 10. I.e. a DF of 190.
I think rowing with a lower DF one uses one's endurance more. With a very DF you train the muscles more ( Biceps ). :wink:

morning: 2- for 9k
evening: running 5.5k 3:52/km. finishing HR 172/200.

A 15sec/k progress with the running since the first run @ 4:07/k B) . My HR was higher today than first time, though, but my comfort was the same.

I think much is due to the 4x400m @ 1:12 , 2min slow between, I did during last friday's session to get something "speedish" in the legs without pushing too hard and getting injured or psychologically burned. It was my second running session this season so I had to be careful. Today was my fourth and I was faster without trying to be.

It would be nice to do a sub 3:30/k run for the 5.5k distance, since then, I could possibly do sub 35 for 10k aswell. Also I would like to better my 4:30 for the 1500m. That's just 3.75 laps at 1:12, gulp. :?

I was so pissed off at my 30min 'attempt' yesterday (where I put the handle down) that I had to do something to tell the brain who was in charge so I sat on it:-

21097m / 1:23:19.1 / 1:58.4 / 20spm / HR141 (80%)

and now the muscles in the left cheek of my arse may never talk to me again. After my shower I am definitely tightening up in an unpleasant way :( - still i started and finished and have no intention of doing another one soon (can put it on the nonathlon as event 9). Definitely my first in over a year and probably only my 2nd 60min row in 6 months plus.

Now I am having a beer !!!! :D or 2 or 3

actual: 23:00 @ 169.8 W 20s/m


i dont understand how i pulled this off, i wasnt feeling well and i really had no determination. i had to really sit myself down and do it. AND my mother came downstairs and told me i had to get off!!!!! i was already 8 mins into it! (i had to find my wallet). but after that i started again and actually had some determintation.

Ben,

Glad to see you are sticking with the plan. I was curious why you decided to lower the Wattage and Rate after each 5 sessions. It looks like your SPI stays the same but your overall workload is lower because of the longer rest.

Ben,

When I started my first cycle, 20 mintutes at 188 Watts was a huge challenge. By the end of the cycle I was AVG. 192 Watts for 40 minutes and could definitely have gone longer.

That is the idea of adding one minute per session but keeping the intensity the same throughout the entire cycle. It is a slow gradual build up where you keep intensity a constant but increase time. Over the course of the 20 sessions, your endurance and stamina at that intensity will increase.

If you have set the initial intensity (Watts) at a correct level (80% of 2K TT at r20 or 75% of TT Unrestricted) Then your physical and physiological systems will adapt.
