Guy - given the approach, that's astonishing. Well done!

Sorry you've got a frustrating conundrum there Dave. If your neighbourhood is anything like here, I've been dodging chesty colds left, right and centre (while not catching one, I'm sure there's something underlying). In any event, hope whatever it is clears soon for you.

Re: Rowpro training plan

Three days in on the plan, and three "technique" rows logged. I settled on half marathon pace for these, and sought to hold 20spm. Yesterday this proved ideal and straightforward, while today and Monday's traces were a little more lively. In any event, its a controlled way back into my daily rows. h...

Very well done to all the FS rowers in the challenge so far. This was the first "sprint" set I'd completed after my side strain, so in much the same vein as Dave (hope your injury is not lingering too much) this was much more measured than I would have liked. 14.33.2 (29spm; 1.49.2). I'd like to thi...

Rowpro training plan

After an enforced rest, I'm going to go for a little change from the concept 2 plan to a rowpro plan (aiming at longer distances, which I "prefer"). In a inauspicious first step, I found myself fibbing to rowpro in order to get access to the slightly more intense work outs - I'd rather not drop week...

Re: Injuries.....:(

I've succumbed to a troublesome right hand side strain, the same location as what was probably a stress fracture a few months back. Nothing like the level of pain, but it's going to get I way of march madness and this months ctc in all likelihood.

Re: February 19 CTC - 2801m

Seems like there's a preemptive change of challenge on the website, so there may be some gremlins on the prowl.

A mere 3 free spirits short to get 6 boats afloat. Well done everyone ^O^

A bit scrappy, but pb is a pb: - 15s off my 10k.

Because next year's nonathon clearly was looking far too easy already....

Re: February 19 CTC - 2801m

I thought I'd keep the LWT seat in boat 1 a little longer [emoji6] This pretty much matched the pace predictor's pace, and for shame there might have been enough to sneak under 20s had I been a smidge more confident with the sprint finish.... https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190221/d3b3d7c57916d84...

Re: Perceived exertion vs heart rate training

Well that didn't go to plan...... My excuse is that my new gym shoe were sufficiently slippery that my feet kept on slipping out. As a result, the flat out rep was a slightly odd paced beast: definitely sub 2km pace but way off what the step test required (trace attached). Second attempt is called f...

My recommendation is you bias it towards male, light, older rowers.
I suggest no one outside of that definition looks at any of the spreadsheet code :lol: Joke - promise!
