Re: Awesome Nonathlon History

The “sea of purple and blue” may well be more extensive as I took part in the Nonathlon from 2007 to 2010 using the name Gremlin. Jon, you will not have been aware of this. Keep going with your experiments on the table. The colour scheme is very striking. One of the things that had taken me ages to...

Awesome Nonathlon History

As some of you will know, I have been honing my programming skills on an analyser for our Nonathlon scores. One of the pages that I have been developing gives you various views on your rowing history, including a table of all of your historic scores with the same heatmap as you see here. I'll just l...

Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

That’s a strong start to the season Dave. A 2 million season on the cards maybe?

Re: The Pete Plan

Jon, the only ything scarry about PP is the paces that you set yourself. If you follow the suggested starting paces (for interval sessions - the tough bit - the pace you have done for the total session without rests, so with rests they are fairly easy) then the sessions are quite gentle to start wi...

Re: Nonathlon 2021

Are we though saying that people sometimes take their 5k time as simply 50% of their 10k time? If so, what please is the point in/reasonable justification behind interpolating scores for the nonathlon? Regardless of that though, given that one has 365 days to register merely 9 scores, ie one score ...

Well done Crushy (at some point you should tell us your name!). Nice effort to keep going and push at the end. I fell a 2k SB coming along very soon =D> =D>

Re: July ctc - 2112m

I put a marker down last night (undoubtedly for JonT to chase down). As my 2k SB was at 1:54.2 pace I figured I should be somewhere around the 1:55 pace and managed 1:54.8. If I could pull the overall time down to sub 8 mins it'd probably be a new SB - and therefore by default actually a 2 year SB ...

Re: what training have free spirits been doing today?

Inspired by all the advice to Paul V re slowing the rating, I have been trying to get my rate down to 20 in an effort to correct my technique. At the same time I have been creeping the damper up to get to my preferred df levels so that I can build my strength back up. Today I had a minor breakthrou...

Re: Training to lower heart rate

Thanks for the replies guys. I'll have a dig around on the web. I've started on the training, doing 3x13min r2 @ 20spm. It's quite novel not to be copmpletely spent at the end of a session. Keeping the HR capped was a challenge though. I can't do this in front of the tv because the ergo is in the ga...

Re: what training have free spirits been doing today?

I'm not sure I'm 6'1" any more - probably 6' at best. I've been told I have a truncated stroke, but I don't know how to measure it. It is one of the data fields in ErgData if you use that Paul. In case of my other post. Anomaly? The last figures were meant to be meters is that what you meant?

Re: what training have free spirits been doing today?

Thanks for the encouragement. I’ve always struggled to get decent results at low ratings. It’s probably at least partly due to a relatively short stroke. Paul, you have far more experience than I, but I took some advice from a very experienced ergo and otw rower last year and he persuaded me to slo...
