Re: Meta-nonathlon 2020-2021

Still quite a gap, just failed to complete a 30', would need to improve that by 140m to match your score. I don't think that is going to happen any time soon. Many thanks for fixing this and I hope you are recovered soon, (but thanks for lending me your boat II spot in the meantime :twisted: . - Iain

Re: The long road back

Great to see you back. Personally I don't see the need for lots of intermediate distances. Yes you have to train >an hour and have at least one successful HM at a 4-5S/500m quicker time, then when you feel fresh go for it! As for blisters, I rarely have issues on HMs, but marathons are different. Th...

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2020-2021

No, increased 500 to 822 points on Friday, changed on Nonathlon site and in the analyser, just not in the meta.

Re: The Pete Plan

Tried 30', but HR went way up so aborted after 2k, did 4k @ 2:05.7 R24 and 3k 2:02.8 R25, second hit Max HR.

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2020-2021

Jon, after 5 days, my Meta hasn't been updated for my improved 500. WOrked in the Nonathlon analyser 'though. Is there something we have to do to update it?

Re: The Pete Plan

Spider, best of luck with the 2ks. Wolfie, hard luck, must be catching! But great comeback with the 500's. My Tuesday session was 3x(7x30S r1 min) r4'. Attempting to start at 1:45 and get faster.

Re: Strapless times

I have known some people claim that at R25 or so they row at the same pace. Personally I am lucky not to have to clamp onto the rail at some point which would definitely slow me down, so I always strap in for any TT and have no data to answer the question from first hand experience. However, the pur...

Re: The Pete Plan

I don't do this as target the average that quickly gets very difficult through the middle despite fa...

Re: The Pete Plan

Spidermac, is that session supposed to tax threshold or be steady state? Strange mix of a harder than ideal SS row ending with a short threshold session, doesn't fit into normal training types, but well done to do that in this heat. Wolfie, impressed you managed this so evenly and even had something...

Re: The Pete Plan

Nice 1500s Wolfie & Spider. My Waterfall was poor mental preparation, normally I find the last interval the easiest. My HR wasn't even as high as in 2.5k when I H/D, heart just not in it (or more precisely brain not on it!) I also did half an hour today in my weekly online session, but of intervals ...

Re: The Pete Plan

Sensible choice Spidermac. Steve, impressive to beat the 500s, I found these were faster even when I upped the number to 15! I tried a Waterfall. Last time 2:03.2, but after 2:01.2 4x2k thought I could go quicker (and probably could have on a cooler day), 2:01.8, 2:01.2 then H/D only 560M in. Did a ...

Re: July ctc - 2112m

Well my first ctc for several years! Truly dreadful time but just about broke 10 minutes and was pulling 1:46s in the last few metres. Based it on the first row on my new machine about a month ago which 10 mins for 2000m exactly. This time I went through 2k in 9:35, so its improving. Onwards and up...

Personally I have always struggled to row even below UT1 limit and my Tuesday coach has been pushing me to row slower. I have...

Re: The Pete Plan

Spidermac, well done persevering with the Waterfall and taking off a significant chunk. We all have our least favourite sessions, for me this is the one I currently lose less sleep over, but I prefer distances. Its the next up for me, so hope I I am not making bad luck! That 8x3'r1' looks brutal. Si...

Re: The Pete Plan

Not a PP session, but today's online session was 7 x 1' r4'. Idea was that the minutes were not far below standalone 1' pieces with full recovery between. Tried to pace to avoid the loss of leg movement from lactate build up usual for last 15S of 1' flat out, managed to avoid this until the last. Tr...

Jon welcome, Mine is both modified and includes many other things, but all you need is the 6 interval sessions down left and date and average columns across the page in successive cycles.

Re: The Pete Plan

Not had a PM4, but I think PM3 just shows the HR at end of interval. Looks a tough session if done all out, an L4 on acid! As my Tuesday sessions have been at or above 2k pace, did next long interval session, the 4x2k. Still sore from Tuesday (probably over taxed myself on LSD 75' Wednesday as well)...
