I have my "training course" which is 4.3 miles and I've set my little HR
monitor to beep if I exceed the training zone - my rules are I then stop till
it's back under and start up again. Anyway, the times are coming down and the
average HR too so I must be getting a little bit more efficient.
Following the excellent tip about the legs / arm sequence I thought I'd
cracked it then a guy on the RI board chips in that he can see I’m just pushing
my arms out straight and the button is about 4" away from the oarlock. I think I
took your advice too enthusiastically.. Now trying to keep a little thumb
pressure on the recovery and that's giving a better arc. Been rowing easy with 2
fingers a bit and trying to get things more horizontal - still not there but
A major leap forward this week was taking my gloves off for the first time (was
getting blisters) - oh what a difference being able to feel the square on the
oars. Just letting them drop in at the right time - much cleaner. Still got soft
hands so that is a target.
All in all, I'm having great fun. Just waiting to recover from the aches and
I'm off again.
