Re: Alcohol and erging/training

FWIW, If you can drink in moderation and enjoy it, the benefits when considered in the round may be more beneficial than not drinking. If your drinking to get drunk or alleviate stress id suggest stopping. Drinking wine, especially a good red is one of life's great pleasures. IMHO, it does little ha...

Re: Sprint training for 1 minute and 100m efforts

I'm not sure whether I'm qualified to give advice my 100m is 15.1 on static a d 15.0 on slides.for 100; 335m o Static and 356m slides. For me I don't think strength training made any difference, I improved my 100m pb set about 13 years ago in steps from 17.x over a period of x 6months to what it is ...

Re: Endurance erging - A place to discuss 42, 50, 100k upwards.

I mostly agree with this, Glenn. The one caveat, imo, is nutrition. Personally, I can get through about 2.5 hours (uncomfortably, I don't recommend it) with nothing to eat/drink. And, if I add even a few hundred calories and a bit of fluids, 3 easy hours ain't too bad. But, if if the aim is 7, or 1...

Re: Endurance erging - A place to discuss 42, 50, 100k upwards.

I have come to the view some while back, that = we are not training to row a particular distance per se, but training our bodies to row for long periods of time. Whilst this may seem a bit pedantic because our targets are usually a defined distance, this concept becomes clearer when one thinks of ul...

Re: Endurance erging - A place to discuss 42, 50, 100k upwards.

There are differing plans, i followed the Eddie Fletcher FM plan, the longest session was 90mins, with one being completed in the final week of training, as well as 2 x 30mins sessions over the week.. My las FM was 3hrs 11mins so it equated to roughly half distance for me. Not sure what others do, i...

Re: Endurance erging - A place to discuss 42, 50, 100k upwards.

Cracking first FM. Now a few days into recovery and reflection, I really do think the difference between FM and 100k is much bigger than just the meters. It’s also much greater than the difference (say) between a 2k and a FM, IMO. I suppose it’s because in everything up to FM, we’re pushing hard to...

Re: Endurance erging - A place to discuss 42, 50, 100k upwards.

For the most part, we did Andy 550m then me 450m. We had a couple of stints at 1100/900 to allow toilet breaks and replenishing snacks, but I found that these seemed to add fatigue a lot faster. Andy didn't have the same perception but was fine keeping it shorter. I find it astonishing that not onl...

Re: Endurance erging - A place to discuss 42, 50, 100k upwards.

Yesterday I completed the 100k. TLDR: 7:43:28.2. Be happy to finish. Unless you are experienced at ultramarathon efforts, don't target a specific time (I'm not, I did, and it almost cost me). Pre-event and Goals I got a solid night's sleep, but woke early at 0400 (I usually wake up around 0430). Th...

Re: Endurance erging - A place to discuss 42, 50, 100k upwards.

I had a go at an ultra-row, myself yesterday. I managed 12 hours, and just a touch under 169km (avg. pace of 2:07.9). Had hoped to maybe target the 24hr WR. But, knew 2 hours in the was out the window and just tried to hold on as long as possible. Well done, thats a great pace, would have seen you ...

Re: Endurance erging - A place to discuss 42, 50, 100k upwards.

Quick shoutout to 'Elizabeth' (Gilmore) and Andy Tomlinson for destroying the tandem, mixed, 100k world record, yesterday. Finished it in well under 6 hours. Avg pace of about 1:45.8. Bonkers. Wow, Wow, wow, and its not as if Elizabeth hadnt been quote busy of alte either. Well done to both, that s...

Re: Endurance erging - A place to discuss 42, 50, 100k upwards.

For those of you who have done 100k+ rows: how often, if at all, did you pee? I didn’t go or feel the need to go at all during my 60k, despite taking on (but no doubt sweating out) adequate fluids. Trying to figure out my pit stop strategy for the 100k and whether I need to plan on a trip to the re...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

10k in 39:43.2 today. Not a distance I do very often at all but I managed to beat my 5 year pb of 39:48.1. At 47 I feel like more PBs going to be hard to come by so happy with that! No point if it was easy, Ive just beaten my 13 year old PB at WIRC last Saturday in the 500m MHW60-64 cat 1:30.6 vers...
