Thanks Paul - I will get back to erging pretty soon I'm sure - I've come to accept that my PBing days are over due to my heart issues but the allround health and strength benefits realised through the rowing are sufficiently strong motivators.Paul Victory wrote: ↑Wed Feb 24, 2021 10:54 am Sorry to hear about your injury Paul. I’ve had several visits to the physio about my lower back problems and I may have to consider alternative solutions if things don’t start to improve. I’ve done hardly any erging (none so far this month), although I don’t think erging makes my back any worse. It’s more a motivation issue and frustration at how slow I’ve become.
Woj, well done on your continuing weight loss. At that rate, it won’t be long before you’ve passed me. I don’t think I’ll be able to establish a clear downward trend until I get back into erging regularly.
I've had this happen a few times before, only once as a result of erging and funnily enough it happened on a session where I had lowered the DF significantly(I think it was a CTC) - from my previous experiences with this back twinge I have found that moderate exercise is actually Ok - it is being stationary for hours at a time, in front of the work computer sceen, or TV, that causes the most aggravation.
