Steady she goes ...

Post by psychling » December 14th, 2014, 1:14 am

Unlike much of my athletic career I'm approaching rowing strategically. Persistence and consistency. No massive hours or meter mania. So after a bit more than 3 weeks of rowing once a day-ish for an hour ... I find that my endurance and times have improved and I am not knackered for the remainder of the day.

That in itself is a benefit.

Also, hard to deny that the hassle and lack of safety factors of bicycling have an impact.

Rowing is excellent prep for traffic jamming and proving trees are tougher than collarbones. Five or six casually "once a dayish" 1 hr. sessions is considerable volume and should produce at the very least endorphins in the body. Jack

First thing, you have provided no gender, age, weight, or height info.

An hour a day is actually a lot for a beginning rower. What are your rowing stats: avg pace and strokes per minute? What drag factor do you use?

Seems like you are off to a very good start.
