Dan Burpee spreadsheet next generation

We all know the Dan Burpee Row Pro extractor. You know that Greg and I have been playing with Python to reproduce those colorful graphs of Dan Burpee. In the meantime I have developed this a little further. I will very soon have a web interface where you can upload your row files (CSV, TCX) and crea...

Re: Fitness Matters Training Programme

I'm on the verge of bailing out on it (or at least bailing out on reporting the session results). After an exchange of thoughts re the 18SPM stuff Sam elected to send a a general post containing the words "Dipping in and out won't work " which I've taken as directed straight at me owing to the timi...

Re: Anyone had any SEASON's bests recently?

I did a 500m, just in time to get a >900 nonathlon score before the OTE season ends. The full story is here: http://blog.rowsandall.com/2016/04/25/new-sculls-and-a-hard-500/ I managed 1:33.8. Not sure how I did that 1:31.6 a few years ago. Well, sprint training is only now starting so perhaps I will...

Both ErgData and ErgStick seem to have a vested interest in NOT doing that. ErgData really wants to g...

Colorfull graphs now in python

Courtesy copy of what I posted in another thread: In the past few days, I have been playing with some Python code that gets data from a TCX file (captured with CrewNerd, for example) and create nice plots. I've also successfully used it to create plots from RowPro CSV files, as well as Painsled (bot...

Nice work sander! I don't know how you guys get your heart rate so high. If I stay around 150 for very long (which is only just into AT for me), I'm panting, wheezing and just want to stop rowing. Thanks. It's genetics. Maximum heart rate is different for everyone, as well as how the heart reacts t...

So Greg, that is actually slower than your 2k pace, right?
