I've been doing the 2k program from the concept 2 site recently:

http://www.concept2.co.uk/training/interactive.php

It kicks off pretty slow with a lot of long intervals, so not been doing any tests. However last night my flatmate gave me some stick about being faster than me over 1km, which is actually quite a useful distance for the regattas we're doing at the moment. So although this lunchtime was "shoulder rehab" workout, I thought I'd kick off with a 1km row. First 500m was under 1:30, but last 250 was tough and came in over 3:05 :? The effort also ended any hope of a meaningful shoulder workout :(

Don't panic fredrik, I'll be back on the water tonight. Doesn't look like much chance of a tan though :?

well i'm embarrassed to post my times here really :oops: but i think it might give me something to work for, see if i can improve.

I also use a Concept 2 machine, i'm not a rower, and i only started using the gym in June this year, so don't snigger too much, ok :lol:

I do 2 sets of the fish game on the Concept 2, back to back, so that's a total of 8 minutes, and so far the best i can manage in 8 minutes is just over 1500 metres. I'll get faster though! :) .

I've had a quick shot at that, it's quite a lot tougher varying your pace on the game than just keeping a steady pace.

Would you like a category for the fish game? I'm not too sure how it works or what you'd put on a table for it though (distance, score?)

funny thing is that if I'm not mistaken this is the same Maria Stevens who's a Vega ambassador, vegan and member of VF (but haven't been online for a while).

No worries. What information should be in the table? Should it be like:

PinkFluffyCloud 2 games 1500 metres

and we'll order the table based on distance?

I think it would be better as maybe 2 fish games but with open distance, so that distance and score can be recorded. I managed 1600 metres today, for example. I forgot my fish score though! (will have to write it down next time! :lol: ).

I hope what I just wrote makes a lick of sense, i'm really ditsy today :oops: .

Thanks for helping me with my fish game table :lol: :lol: .

What is it that most gives men faster speeds than women- greater height, greater weight, or what?

Sorry I've not got the fishing table up yet PinkFluffyCloud, I was wanting to have a little look at it to see how best to order the table. Soon though, promise :)

Moggy - height and bodyweight do play a large part in ergo times, also men are stronger I suppose.

We could produce a 2k table which takes age, sex and weight into account - http://www.concept2.co.uk/racing/correction.php

If anyone fancies this post up a 2k time along with age and weight and I'll make it happen.

I suppose if it shows that I'm nearly twice the age of the youngsters on here (or more than, in some cases), I can use age as an excuse! :D

I've just looked at your link- I'm 19 years past my prime age :oops:

Couple of Britain's gold medalists lay out the 100m challenge.

Anyone up for this?
