Re: Meta-nonathlon 2020-2021

Thanks for fixing this Jon, although we still do not completely know what the problem was/is. Maybe the analyser only accepts your command to update :D The 500m were pure coincidence. I updated my hour yesterday with the same (non) effect but didn‘t want to bother you again. Peter - when you access...

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2020-2021

This is a really odd one, and unfortunately is being made difficult to fix because of the "observer effect". I can see in our Nonathlon Analyser database that your score had not been updated, which is why your Metanonathlon score was incorrect - it was using the old score from the database...

Re: peak force, avg force, DF, stroke rate, cardiac adaption and the role of muscle fiber types

Claudius, This is way beyond my comprehension of physiology and training. In terms of what I am focussing on: I have definitely shifted towards larger volumes of UT2 training, towards the top of that range, which is around the 75% HRMax that you mention in your post. I used to do far more work close...

Do you recommend mobile users install 'Tapatalk'? I've avoided it until now, another app, another logon etc ... It has its fans.

Re: Meterboard 2 - bugs and feature requests

Hi Jon, there seems to be a discrepancy with my C2 log and the meter board. Log shows 931,622 so for some reason the mtb is giving me some extra meters :-k I'm not too worried about it, but thought you'd want to know (and I won't claim my 1M m until it actually happens :-) ) Cheers, Steve EDIT : ju...

I don't usually dip into the Sanctuary, so I missed this I'm afraid. We spent a month in NZ quite a long time ago and had a fabulous time.

Well I finally convinced myself to have another go at this after the previous attempt was lost when the PM5 crashed. #-o As discussed in this thread, I had in mind a 2k-2 row, probably trying to alter the pace slightly between the different length sessions. It went pretty well with the following fig...

Re: Training to lower heart rate

Biggest thing you need is time and heaps of patience. Lock your ego in the bathroom before any session because the only number you look at is HR then possibly spm. See my comment only today in the Pete Plan thread! My "easy" sessions are ones I try to row in UT2 with 70% HR max as the cap...

My thinking on this is that the rest after the first interval should allow this to be done pretty fast (although not all out), got stung on 3' intervals today, they are tougher than you would think.
