Technique Clinic

I have been meaning to do this for ages. I would really appreciate any feedback on the YouTube videos of me rowing at r20 and at r32 at the gym today (my C2 doesn't squeak!). https://youtu.be/RRjkCvZ-ClE - r20 https://youtu.be/6yUUYS0VgXA - r32 My immediate observations are: I am hinging at the hips...

Re: The Pete Plan etc

Well done spider. To dive in there without much TT work lately and to beat last year's so convincingly (in hot weather) is a great result. =D> =D>

Millionaires club - 2021-22 Season

A new topic in the forum to capture the achievements of those of us who row a million meters or more in a season.

Thanks to those Free Spirits who maintain this thread. =D> =D>

Re: The Pete Plan etc

June ctc - 3 miles / 3‘r / 2 miles / 2‘r / 1 mile, first rep standing start

You were absolutely correct about the 2-mile interval Iain. I intended to do this session as a trial to get a feel for it, and then to have a second attempt later this month. I am still feeling ok after my second COVID jab, but didn't want to push my luck. As you all know, plan and execution never r...

Thanks for starting this thread Iain. I have often seen these annual threads and thought about writing a post but never got around to it.

The Pete Plan etc

I've had a couple of steady UT2 session this week and then did a Rowalong session this morning. I had my second AZ jab on Friday. After the last one I was tired for a couple of weeks and my HR was through the roof as soon as I even sat on the erg, so I was interested to see what happened this time. ...

Re: June ctc - 3 miles / 3‘r / 2 miles / 2‘r / 1 mile, first rep standing start

I’m thinking 10k-3 as a possible pace?? It may be better to ramp up the pace through the intervals given there is a reasonable amount of rest early on, but I’m a believer that the opportunity with these type of CTCs is in the longer intervals, so hitting those hard and hanging on later is probably g...

Re: The Pete Plan etc

I would really struggle to get this done as 28SPM for me would be 3+S / 500m faster than I could currently do a 5k. If I have a go, i think I will ignore the SPM recommendation and go with the pace alone. Iain - to be more precise. The recommended rating for the piece is your 5k rating. I have just...

Seventh time lucky Iain! =D> =D> I certainly wouldn't have the tenacity to keep having a go after six failed attempts. I am becoming a big fan of the Rowalong Mid Tier rows from the 5k programme. Today's session was 8x3mins 1:30r at r28 with a target pace between 5k+1 and 5K+3. I have not been doing...

The software on our server is due for a scheduled update. I will probably do this at some point this week. The site, including forum and Meterboard, will be unavailable during the upgrade, which [-o< shouldn't take more than an hour or so.

Well done Ian. It’s a shame we didn’t get to meet up when I was over your way at the Dyson 7s, though I have to say it was a pretty hectic day. Enjoyable though.

Not a problem at all Paul. I'm glad you find it helpful. Iain asked me to have a look at the average column. There are now two of them. One is the average of all scores. The second (Avg9) drops the lowest score if you have a full set. I have put hover text on the table headings to explain what each ...

Everyone gets their own benefits and motivation from events like the Nonathlon. For me it has the attraction of some friendly competition, a reminder of wh...

I had a sudden urge as I was meant to be cooling down on the erg after a weights session today #-o I literally gave no thought to this at all. Just sat down after the session and blasted out 3:20 at r34. At the time ...
