How many meters did you row/erg today? - Page 37
Been a while since I posted here. Winter training is going well. Pulled 1:53.3 on a 15K today, at 23spm. Felt pretty damn good about that. Also, recently pulled 21x1' at 1:38.1 and 4x8' at 1:47.5. Doing a 2k on Saturday, then another on 2/19 at CRASH-B, then possibly another on 2/29 if I'm not satisfied with the first two. Pumped about spring season.
Damn! Getting fast, looks like you should be comfortably under 6:40. Congrats on that 15k.
I haven't posted in a while either. Winter training had been going well, then first week of December I came down with mono. Missed about 5 weeks of real training, now working on getting it back. We also have a 2k this weekend.
I have less than 200k to go til 5 million meters on my C2 logbook. I didn't start keeping track til my sophomore year. I did roughly 3 million in 3 years, then have been slowly adding to the total. I'd like to get to 5mil before the April 30 cutoff for the C2 "year".
Craigslist or go to www.row2k.com and they have a classifieds section. I got my Model C from that site. I'd like to get the dynamic rower sometime.
You should get model C, D, or E. Model B aren't worth it any longer (in my opinion).
Think I coulda gone a bit faster on the 2k erg if we'd tested at all during the season, but our coach is big on not having us pull any tests once spring racing starts. Think I'll need to go in the low 6:20's to make the varsity for next spring and at or below 21 flat on the 6k, so this'll be a pretty brutal summer of training. Working with this really old-school Ukranian sculling coach who's got me doing all kinds of strange lifts, hundreds of pushups a day, and an hour each day of technique drills in the single on top of 15-20k of steady state volume.
I'll be racing a lot of regattas across the Midwest, so let me know if any of you guys happen to be out racing this summer.
Pulled a 2k (maybe the 3rd or 4th time in 10 years) on an erg the other week and managed a 6:19 @ 23 SPM. Was pretty happy though I had zero ability to bring the rate up and just relied on my power to turn the wheel. Makes me think I may need to get back in "rowing" strength and maybe even get back down to lightweight to see what I can do.
Coaching all next week at youth nationals if anyone else will be there.
