Re: July ctc - 500m/2'30

Unfortunately my new Garmin HR monitor on the wrist struggled to catch the first intervals, while the breast belt connected to erg performed well (see above). I've never had any success at all with a wrist heart monitor on the erg. Just doesn't sem to get anything close to real heart rate. I have s...

Re: June ctc - 20 x 300m / 1'r

I need an unusually (for me) structured approach to this one because it looked so painful and I had no idea about pace. I decided to do this at a 2k pace and to cap my HR at 177 (for mo particularly scientific reason). The HR capping worked really well for me. It stopped fly-and-die behaviour which ...

Reentered all the details in the concept 2 logbook but still didn't push the workout to garmin connect
Not sure what else to suggest. I've checked the C2 forums and there doesn't seem to be much chatter about issues.

Last suggestion - are you running the latest firmware?

Re: May CTC - 3 x 1k / 5 min rest

BW Rowing announced their CTC choice for May: "3x1k 5min rest". I take it that means 5 minutes in both rest intervals, 10 minutes rest total. Looking at the c2ctc forum thread, it is going to be described as 3x1k with 5 min rest between intervals. Unrestricted pace. Rolling starts for interval 2 an...

Re: Logging Results

I personally rely on a combination of the Concept2 Log, Strava and Garmin Connect Dashboard. I have all three of them linked up, but if I want to get a diary/summary of my rowing I usually end up on Concept2 Log. The Log will give you PBs if you look at the History tab and will also give you SBs if ...

Re: Indoor Rowers League 2018 / 2019

Despite setting a new HR Max of 192 8-[ I still only managed 1:45.3 which is way off my SB and PB. Then again, I did do it straight after the c2ctc 1,500m #-o

I would have another go, but will me heart stand up to it?? [-o<

It needs a few eyes on it to test (and indeed to say whether this is helpful), so please feel free to view. I can't tell if its my PC being sluggish or not, but the update on open takes a few seconds to process.
When I look at this I see Forum Flyers and Free Spirits Ian.

Re: March ctc - 666/333/666/333/666/333/666/333 - 10' 30" total rest

I had my first go at the CTC since October. Weighted 76.5 kilos this morning, so had to revert back to my hwt user name. The time (16:20.8 or 2:02.7/500m) is nothing to write home about, but actually exceeded my low expectations. It's a new start anyway (I hope). Great to see you back rowing Rodger...

Not much left afterwards. Which brings me to a kind of noob question: I understand the feeling HD stands for, but where does the abbreviation stand for?
HD = Handle Down. It and many other terms are defined in Plummy's Lexicon Guide

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2018-2019

Dear Rodger, I have been a good boy and done my IRL 10K today. I really tried very hard even though my legs and the voices in my head told me to stop this nonsense at once. I made a small improvement on my Nonathon time, which left me feeling sad and disappointed. It would make me very happy if you ...

Well, that didn't go to plan. How I didn't HD I will never know. I was aiming for sub-41 but crawled over the line with 41:04.7. A SB for me, but I don't think it will be enough of an improvement to get more meta-nonathlon points. HR was horrendous for 30 of the 40 minutes. This will be my only effo...

Re: Free Spirits CTC Participation and Leaderboard

I have been bold and added a fractional weighting to the scores to avoid ties but not distort the core value (at the moment this is derived from the lifetime CTC total, but I'm very happy to hear thoughts about the preferred way). Fractional weighting is the future! My recommendation is you bias it...
