Re: Anyone had any SEASON's bests recently?

That's a good result at that rating Paul =D> . I know from many, many 30min UT2 rows recently that I can't get close to 7k at r20 while keeping the HR down, which I am assuming you did.

Re: Indoor Rowers League 20/21

I think I've managed 1 x 10k and 1 x 60 mins this season. Generally, my spirit to continue on starts to wane rapidly at a bout 15 minutes so 10k is going to be a major effort to complete it. Maybe starting with the 6k and building to the 10k is just the motivation you need to get a bit of your old ...

Re: February ctc - 3x2k, 5‘r, no restrictions

I didn't get around to doing the 3x2K with a rest period this month so I put in a straight 6K time that I did on the 10th of Feb in order to float another boat. I hope that's not bending the rules too much! Now I see that next month is a straight 6K #-o Well done for getting another boat floated Sh...

Re: ErgZone

This is a Strava issue Ian. It's a strange thing for them to do, but as you suggest they seem to take the total elapsed time and total meters (including those from rests) and use those to calculate overall pace. This happens if you are using ErgZone or ErgData. Rowing is the poor cousin in Strava I'...

Re: Indoor Rowers League 20/21

Lads, it's looking increasingly like I'm going to let you down this month. I pulled a muscle in my back a couple of weeks ago and it appears to be healing at middle-aged lady pace (rather than the superfast speed I anticipated in my fantasy world where I am still young and fit!). I may have a very ...

Some good sessions here folks. Iain, that looks like it was tough from the start. By the way, I hadn’t realised that the PP paces were Pete’s best results! That session really drained me. I should have pulled out. Spider - I wouldn’t bother with the CTC if I were you. After all you wouldn’t want to ...

Re: what training have free spirits been doing today?

Boring I know but now at just over 8 weeks post surgery I have been allowed to row for 10 min a day, gently. Biking is allowed so now doing an hour on the bikerg most days as well. Taken me most of the last week to settle back into a passable rhythm and now doing 5 x 3 min. I realise that is more t...

Re: Strava Club - come and join

I use Strava for recording cycle rides. Would joining for rowing create a bit of mess? Not at all. I use it to record cycling, running, refereeing (!), walking and rowing. To be honest the rowing support is pretty poor and doesn't really impact on your overall activity. So, joining the club on Stra...

For those of you who use Strava, I have created a club which you can join without an invite. I just thought it was another way to share with others what you have been up to on and off the ergo. Link to Strava Club P.S. Strava wouldn't let me set the club location as "Planet Earth" or "...

Re: The Pete Plan (other training plans are available)

I wanted a hard "endurance" session today so opted for the PP 4x2k. As you can see I faded after the second interval, and to be honest was amazed I even started the last one. I felt exhausted and was so close to HD, but decided just to plough on and paddle gently through if required. I'm a...

Re: February ctc - 3x2k, 5‘r, no restrictions

I finally worked up the courage to do this CTC. 11 weeks post rib fractures it was a challenge and the longest I have rowed in over a year, but we floated another boat. I will not be reattempting this one! Great to see you managed to conquer this one as part of your recovery. [emoji1303] Sent from ...

CTC - Carole McNally Memorial

I am assuming the CTC will be remembering Carole McNally with a one-day 1402m row. No restrictions, no complications simply record the time taken for 1402m.

It isn’t showing as the challenge at the moment, but thought I would post a reminder anyway.
