How many meters did you row/erg today? - Page 35

Admittedly not. I'd say about 65-70% of my work meters come from L4-type pieces, but a lot of that work is done out in my single. Because I don't yet own a SpeedCoach, I can't monitor stroke rates or splits very accurately on the water, which makes doing real L4 workouts effectively impossible.

Hit 4:03 today for my boatclub's 1k course in the single. The old PR was 4:08. Fuck of a lot harder to pull 2-minute splits in a single than on an erg!

Also, I did a 10k on the erg the other night, cycling through 18/20/22 spm. I think I went balls out for the last minute or so. Finished with 1:55 avg. split.

Still out of shape.

3k x 2. First was 1:55.0/20-22spm, second 1:53.5/23-24spm. 3 minute rest in between.

Even though I'm very out of shape to rowing standards, I can easily outwork everyone on a b-ball court. Stupid people don't know how to hussle smile.gif

Haven't posted in a while. Got really sick for about a month and pretty much got no real training. Working back up to old levels. Doing a lot of steady state and some cross training. When it gets to August going to start upping the intensity.

30k today in the single. Went a little nuts, haha. I'm now past 500,000m for the summer. I think I still have a chance of making it to a million before fall crew starts up.

30 min steady state today. 20SPM, HR ~140, splits between 2.00 and 2.10.

Felt good. A solid piece, not all out by any means, but I'm happy with it.

Been training every day this week as I have a week off and home alone. Back to work next week means a return to 6am sessions and more effort required to find the time.

Happy rowing/erging...

Pretty legit 8x500 there! Keep up the good work, you're making a lot of progress.

Haven't been doing a lot of erging/rowing lately, mostly been focusing on cycling. Trying to break it up a bit.

did a 6.30 2k a couple of weeks back after 4 years of not setting foot in a boat, this was on a machine at the gym btw. a steady regiment of pull ups helped. i guess it's like riding a bike or the machine sensors are off, because that struck me as extremely good given the fact that I havent done it in so long.

Wow, that's pretty damn impressive. Good work!

As for me, getting back into the erging. Been traveling a bit, so just trying to get some steady state in when I can. In Chicago now, but found a local gym that's doing a 7-day trial, so been erging there.

Dude, you should stop by for some kind of NESCAC erg bash. A couple of my high school buds are going to Williams and Trinity; we could have 4 11ths of the conference represented!

Haha be careful what you joke about, My 7 day trial ends after tomorrow so I need to find a new place to erg for a few days.

2.5 weeks off from exercise, went and pulled a 1:28 flat 500m. the ergs at my gym are messed up though, there's so much dust in them that they only go up to drag factor 95 when the resistance is set to 10. i bet i could go faster if the drag factor was 130+.

dude.... what. i would check to see that the machine is working properly. concept 2's sometimes have an issue when the performance monitor thinks it's hooked up to a different model than it actually is. you can tell by being way faster than you should be and if you go to the display mode where it shows your force curve, it'll look like a bunch of points scattered all over the place instead of a consolidated line.

it should look like this:

if your machine is working fine, well congrats and i hate you.
