How many meters did you row/erg today? - Page 28

Thanks, guys. I did PR, with a 6:49.7. Actually wasn't a horribly painful piece (compared to other 2k's), though I was pretty nauseous for a few hours afterwards. Not a big PR by any means, but I'm glad to know I didn't get any slower over the winter.

Andy, how'd your 2k go on Friday?

Good work on the 2k! Nice looking PR there, I'm sure you'll take off even more on the next one.

Got moved to tomorrow! That way I got to have 2k dread all weekend. Hoping for a 6:45 or so, but I'd be happy with anything 6:48 or below.

Had it today. Didn't go great, but I PRed with a 6:47.9. Never got into a rhythm and didn't have a great sprint. Will have plenty more chances though!

Well done Andy!

You and wmmk are real close there... we need to have a tale of the tape, height/weight etc to see whose got more power!

A shitty thing to do to wmmk, posting that slightly faster time just after he posted his pr.
post #411 of 567
He's a couple years younger, so I can't say I'm feeling too bad about that one. Also, based on some of his recent intervals it looks like he's going to make some pretty serious improvements over the next few weeks/months.

Height: 5'11.5"
Weight: 165 (trying to get back down to 160)

Good work, guys! Wish I was still rowing or even coaching. Spring break training was always fun. I'll be back in the single shortly after the time changes this weekend and the air/water temps start to come up (not allowed out in a single with cold air/water for safety reasons).

Good luck on your upcoming racing seasons!

Well done on the PR, Andy! Let's see sub-6:45 next time! No hard feelings, of course, and thanks for the kind words re: improvement.

Anyway, for the record, Andy's definitely got more power per pound than I do on the erg: I'm 6'2.5", 180 lbs. All the more reason to keep bustin' out those pieces.

Tonight, did about 90 mins. of drilling on the water. We're still in mixed lineups, but I was stroking a starboard rigged 8 (I'm typically a port) with a couple Eastern Sprints recruits sitting in the stern. It's always beneficial to row with such talented guys.

At home, I swung it out on the erg for an hour. Was at a 20, focusing on form, pulling a light 2:07 for the first 55 minutes or so. Then decided to DROP THE FUCKIN HAMMER and brought the average 4 seconds. I think I did the last 500m at a 1:36.

2:07? Come on, girls on my old team did better than that, even while working on their form. I mean this in a good way. Trust me, your body can do so much more than you think that you can

It's your mind that holds you back. Especially a guy your size. FWIW, I was 6'3" 182lbs when doing all of these PRs and workouts that I've posted here. Heck, I did a marathon (42,195) at a 1:55.x, ended up around 2hr 40min. So you definitely can do 2:00 for an hour.

Happy I found this thread, didn't know there was rowers on SF! Currently just chilling out having the morning doing a nice two hour work piece, 2 hour break and then a nice hour and a half technical paddle. Feeling pretty lazy now though.... an unproductive evening is in order i think! Some interesting scores here guys. Not sure I agree with doing 2k's every week though!! But that's another story. What are most of you guys rowing in this year? I'm in an 8+..... my natural habitat! hha

If you're doing that kinda practice load and in NYC, I assume you're at Columbia??

Also, doing 2k's every week is a bit detrimental. We did training in 3 week cycles during winter training to get into on-the-water 2k racing season.

Yea he's gotta be at Columbia or rows masters or something. I only remember doing that amount of work on a handful of occasions.

And 2k tests were rare. Maybe 5 max over the course of a season.
