Re: Row off the Holiday pudge

Team is definitely in for the World Erg Challenge. If you're on the team just confirm on your page that you're in and it should log your meters to the challenge.

I could only do the Valentine challenge last month. Not military and I don't have a Skierg. I bet the 10k was a mental challenge.

Re: Atlanta Erg Sprints

Ha! Yeah, I've never been comfortable at the higher ratings. I can hold ~33 for a couple of minutes but the lungs give out before the muscles. I honestly think a focused effort to get into the higher 30s for a full race distance would put me pretty competitive. I'll start with 250m pieces and work u...

Re: Atlanta Erg Sprints

I got a 6:52.3, for a 1:43.1/500. just looked on the c2 rankings, and that's the 25th fastest time in the galaxy for skinny guys your age. that's seriously impressive. Many thanks! That will change tomorrow at 11:40 for sure. That's when my group races at the World Indoor Champs. I'm going to watch...

Re: Atlanta Erg Sprints

Thanks guys. JohnDoe, I wouldn't mind picking your brain on what a year long plan would look like with a goal of a 1:40/500 for next year. Types of workouts at specific times of of the year, weight training worth it vs. specific on-erg strength work, etc. Looking at what my invitation time to the Wo...

Atlanta Erg Sprints

Wife and I spent the morning at the Georgia Tech student athletic complex racing the erg sprints. She was just along for fun and hadn't done any training. I decided a month or so ago to try it and added in some specific speed work over the last 4 weeks on top of a fairly substantial base of 80+k met...

Most of the people who end up in prison are minorities who get caught with minuscule amounts of drugs. Keeps the for profit prison beds full, and the cheap labor flowing.

Re: Row off the Holiday pudge

Good hate or bad hate? Just did 5K on the SkiErg. I guess like anything, there's a learning curve. And a serious need to build up specific endurance. It took me 31 minutes and change. I probably spent 20% of the time "double poling" with the remainder single or "traditional" poling. It just ain't i...

Nice!
I'm thinking of picking up a ski erg to compliment the rowing. Would be nice to have a change of pace, and to have something weight bearing that doesn't screw with my knee now that I can't run anymore.

For sure. I have everyone's email that's on the team. I'll send out a group message so everyone will have mine and can get in touch if needed.

Re: Future of IGx

Not sure where it goes from here. It's too damn slow to justify kicking in any real money to keep it afloat. And my goals are so simple that I don't need an expert to help with them - row a bunch, maybe do a few races. Stretch a bit. Lift some for balance. I'm not on the facial books, so no way I ca...

Re: 2018 Goals

My goals are simple this year. Keep minimizing the amount of stuff I have, and drill down to only having the things that really matter to me. This is to both declutter the physical and mental space. Not looking to be one of those dudes that only has 100 possessions, but just looking to not have dist...

I'm jealous - I loved my long, slow jogs for years (especially in the dead of Canadian winters doing trails) and a couple of terrible marathons.

Re: Time pressed endurance training

Agree with BD to go with drills over hill repeats if the goal is to get faster on your limited training time. Running hills get the HR high quickly, but alters your gait enough that it doesn't necessarily train you to go fast on the flats. Think of hill repeats as specific strength work for runners ...
