Dec 2 2016
I arrived around midnight on Wednesday night, and the last 2 hours of my travel was in a car through a snow storm.
I was tired form the trip.
I had a lot of things to do.
I didn’t feel 100%. The feeling that a cold is sneaking upon you.
So I decided to skip the training and spent the evening implementing, testing and debugging Empower Oarlock data. All of you who already own this great oarlock, I invite you to register, upload the CSV file that you can export from the LiNK software and start playing.
I cannot show you any pictures, as I don’t have my own data yet. Also, you may find a few undiscovered bugs. In that case, drop me a line please. Apart from bringing power based training to OTW rowing, the oarlock records a bunch of other useful data, and I am really excited about visualizing these data for you.
Managed to get all my work work done by 4pm and drove home quickly for a Steady State workout. This time, I chose a 2000/1750/1500/1250/1000/1000/1250/1500/1750/2000 format which is exactly 15km and a bit over an hour in my version:
Workout Summary - media/20161202-1630100o.csv
I rowed this as a “Just Row” on the erg, using Painsled to record the data and send it to workouts @ rowsandall.com, and rowsandall.com to split this up in the right segments after the row.
And here are the plots:
I ended at a slightly higher Work Per Stroke (“SPI”) than I started. All in all I am happy with the workout, even though I found the heart rates a bit on the high side.
