That's fast!

I just did an 85% effort after my bike session.

500m 22 1:58.3
1000m 26 1:56.4
500m 30 1:53.2

7:44.4

Not great numbers. Can probably do 7:30, but not much faster on current form. Need to use the machine more.

Been using it a good bit, lower rate is also proberly in my favor. Think you can do better, takes a bit getting used to.
Ski btw compared to rowing (for me) is less taxing. Recover much faster from it.
Was 95% for me.

Yeah, I do decent low rate when fit. Ive done 30r20 in high 1:58s, 30r22 in mid 1:55s, and 30r25 in mid 1:52s. Not remotely close to that currently though. Will eventually get back to using it more regularly.

CTC SkiErg 82 Drag

500m 1:52.7 r22
1000m 1:52.5 r26
500m 1:48.5 r30

30 secs rest between both.

7:26.2 1:51.5 r26

Can probably get into the 1:48 averages but maybe not much faster at these low rates on this machine.

Pretty ok, its a short one, can do it a few times. You need to be a real monster and be able to handle high drag to pull this off good.
Will give it a go next week orso. Or...... Today.. Talking about following a plan.
:roll:

Tried 105 drag for a 500, gave a bit more oompff.

First real ski ctc for me.

500 r23 messed this up at the finish 149.3. So penalty for this.
1000 r26 3:35.2
500 r30 144.6

7:09.1 26 (plus p time)

Find this already pretty ok.

Nice!

I had a third go but I took a 5 sec penalty on the 1km, so it ended up a little slower than my second go.

500m 1:51.4 r22
1000m 3:43.0 r27
500m 1:48.3 r30

7:22.7 + 5 secs.

Couple more sessions and I can get the paces for the 1k and second 500m much faster. Don't think I can improve the first all that much.

Drag 82.

Putting to much energy in the first leg won,t help much. Maybe even holding back a tad could help. The starts are also super slow. Expect some very strong rowing times in general, rating for that is a lot less limiting.

Yeah, I rate higher for the first few strokes to get the average down, but still make sure I've only taken 11 by 30 seconds gone. I probably do some 25s then drop back to 6 - 7 strokes at 21 to even it out. Same for the other reps.

But yeah, I probably went too hard on the first rep. I was pulling the whole length of the cable until it wouldn't pull any more. :D

Not there yet, on the rower close to 25 mil. though

Training in general not going wel, tweaked my back last month and have trouble recovering from that. Don,t row much, same for weights. Ski bit better.

Tried 2 30 mjn this week. One rate 40 dr66. Kept 40 for 18 min. Overall 155.5/39

Today free rate, drag 80, was very warm today, which did not help

153.1 rate34, was a positive split first half 152.3 ish.

Was away for a long weekend, no training except walking. Wanted a 30 min, did a short wu felt ok enough, also nice cool weather so started faster.

Got 151.0/33.7 dr81. 8102m pos split, with a solid last minute.

3min splits between 152.7 and 148.5, the last. Tend to rate a bit low, point of attention.
