Weird one tonight. Absolutely zero desire to get this done. Practically had to drag myself kicking and screaming to the garage.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But when I picked up the handle the numbers came totally effortlessly. So much so that I overshot targets and risked missing the point of the session. Just can’t win, eh?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oh well. Clip from last rep shown.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wearing my new @fmrowing beater, representing my main man @samblythe and having a bit of a dress rehearsal for Saturday. Maybe that’s what gave me my power... 🤔

30 minute tempo ski at 40s/m. A bit more firm than normal, but it’s been a little while since I’ve done some consistent volume on this machine and I felt like giving it more of a push. Nothing crazy, kept heart rate in a good zone and felt comfortable on 1.49’s.

Good session. Will try and sneak in a row tonight 👍🏽 —————————————————————— @concept2inc

“Hard week” of the training cycle and this could not have gone much better. (Just ignore my HR creeping 1 bpm over target max for about 1 second 😬😆) #homegym #indoorrowing #concept2 #ergdata #beatyesterday #training #marathontraining #lightweightrowing

Omg, I managed to get #ergdata to actually work for more than a minute!!! Several rituals involved in the process, shall see how well it works tomorrow morning. Gentle lunch session to round up for the day, with a mild sprint at the end - prep for the final split of the halfie.

This past weekend, the Concept2 SkiErg World Sprints took place as the Row Series was coming to an end. Made for a stressful couple of days, but I’m happy to have hit my goals on both fronts.

A new personal best on the 1k Ski was enough to secure first place in my division and bring home the coveted Cowbell 🔔. The thing I am most proud of is how well our GARAGEATHLETE members did....with PB’s everywhere, we finished with 6 of the top 10 Overall Men worldwide (and 13 in the top 50!). Truly was a great showing by everyone.

As for the Row Series, second place was as high as anyone was likely to get with @ollizeidler in the mix...although it was a tie for 2nd, it’s hard not to be happy when you tie someone as talented as @ivansaric87 - great competition, as every week presented it’s own challenges and required intelligent strategy and effort.

Thank you @concept2inc and @the_row_series for providing opportunities to both train and compete on some badass equipment. —————————————————————— @concept2inc

Bit of a leg and lung tickler coming off a messy week.

Between the Row Series and SkiErg World Sprints....I am feeling worn out!

Not my best tonight, but definitely not my worst either. Dealing with a nagging back/rib injury that has been dull and annoying g for months...but now getting less dull and more annoying. Time for an expert!@drjohnvargo I’ll be in touch! —————————————————————— @concept2inc

That relatable moment when your hairband starts to slide off during a 750 and you just chuck it off and keep going. Amirite lads??
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pretty ugly in the last rep. This felt a LOT like the end stages of a 2k so for that I should be thankful. Train hard, fight easy, right? If only. The splits tell the story - yuck!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nice to train with the @abdnrugby guys again. They did six reps 😰 Hard as nails.

Used today’s <75% max row to experiment with hydration. Even going really slowly I find it hard to drink from a cup or bottle without losing rhythm, so I used some spare climbing gear to hang an #ospreypacks reservoir from the ceiling. Barely a blip in stroke rate on the 15 min marks where I grabbed the bite valve - this should work for the marathon 👍

Today didn’t go to plan. I had promised @anonerger (and others) that I would do a 2k. Well long story short it didn’t happen.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If nothing else, I’ve (re)learned a useful lesson: I feel like I lose all conditioning with two days off the rower, so don’t do that before racing!

Other weak justifications for not testing include the fact that I’ve spent the day on some medication; and also that I can actually get all planned training sessions in if I just focus on the one 2k on Saturday.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Despite having semi-valid reasons, I still went into this session feeling like I was chickening out. But by the end I had come to terms with it and decided that maybe it was the right decision after all - this session felt rough af!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tougher than steady, breathing was a bit laboured... about 7.5 RPE.

Row Series - Event 4

Although I completed this Monday, I withheld the screenshot until today in the event I needed to re-do.

It was a conservative effort to maximize the sprint score, and ended up being enough to secure a second place tie with the great and powerful @ivansaric87 💪🏽 (unless the rankings change then this is a rather foolish post 😂) Thanks to @the_row_series For a great event....it was my first one (aside from the Ski Series) and I’m sure I’ll be back for future events. —————————————————————— @concept2inc

Léopold Gossé from affiliate @crossfitgsteel 8th international leaderboard on the 1000m sprint distance ! Congratulation and keep going Léo 👍🏻🏆👍🏻

@concept2inc SkiErg World Sprints
New personal best...and that’s what matters.

Interesting story.

I paced around my house for hours this morning deciding what to do. My wife finally shamed me into getting it over with so I can be useful. (She didn’t really say that but it’s what I told myself...she was actually very supportive today and a wonderful coach. Thanks babe, the breath work totally helped. I love you!) I started exactly as planned on 1:27s...until I zoned out. Completely zoned out. I was looking at the floor just staying in a rhythm and the next time I looked up I saw 1:29s and was closing in on 600m to go.

The internal dialogue was epic. I almost quit, and then decided that was dumb because I didn’t want to do all of this AGAIN. So I got back on target pace and tried to forget about the early blip.

I kept hitting mental check points... “Get to 500”
“Get to 2 minutes”
“Now 10 good pulls and breathe”

When I saw 2:20 on the clock I just let loose. Sad I had that 2 split mess from 800-600m as it would have helped me sneak under 2:54, but I’m thrilled to be DONE and with a new best in my pocket. —————————————————————— @concept2inc

contrary to the many statements and tests I've found on the internet about the Bose sport PULSE headphones: they DO connect with ERG DATA !
And they measure the heart rate VERY accurately in my first try today. But they DON'T connect to a PM5 via ANT or bluetooth SMART. .

Big goals require a balance of ambition and patience. While Monday night’s workout didn’t go quite as hoped, the test helped us find weaknesses in our process that we have fixed for tomorrow’s run. Sounds kind of like a rowing race, huh? #rowinglessonsarelifelessons

Mental prep.

Low rate power 1k, just to feel it before the weekend effort. —————————————————————— @concept2inc

Cold and wet outside, and a much lower max HR for this workout. Might be time to invest in some industrial strength A/C so I can keep the gym permanently cooled to 55 F 🤔

#homegym #indoorrowing #concept2 #ergdata #beatyesterday #marathontraining #lightweightrowing

The good, the ‘bad’, and the ugly.... The good (pic 1) - solid team effort!
The ‘bad’ (video) - devilishly evil workout!

666 meters/undefined rest
Single arm chest press 10 reps each arm
Single arm row 10 reps each arm
10 rounds total, rep count is on a descending ladder, take away 1 rep each new round.
Goal - finish as quickly as possible!

The ugly (pic 2) - long time client, a total monster on the rowing machine, had constant problems with his monitor. We even had other trainers come in to help! He persevered though and we finished together in 41 minutes.

Last night’s efforts. Left it late after I got caught up in a lengthy phone call and didn’t fancy sacrificing up to an hour at the @gopro app altar before bed. Sadly I smashed my phone screen this morning so I can barely tell what this edit and post look like 🤦🏼‍♂️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anyway the session wasn’t great - felt distracted and so accidentally went too hard on the first split and then stupidly held onto that pace when that wasn’t really the point of the session. A warm-down on the bike was actually good to clear the mind before bed.
