When I am paddling, I am feeling life. K1 Sprint Kayak, Surf Ski, Outrigger Canoe, Marathon C1, C2, Wilderness Tripping. My boats are in the garage, my truck is not. If free time permits, I'll go up to the mountains or bicycle till I'm pooped.http://www.knorth.com/

Kurt, your paddling pursuits are impressive!!
Thank you Vincent! It's what I enjoy. Happy running to you!

Tabata HIIT, 12 pieces with 1 minute recoveries in between.
Kayaking 1:22'21.9 Average heart rate 160 bpm, 14.23 km.WaveChaser at Bair Island. Third overall ski, second place Men's Master.
Kayaking 1:21'53.2 Average heart rate 159 bpm, 14.94 km.Lake Tahoe Criterion

Course Time = ?
Race Speed = 7.3 mph average and 10.47 mph maximum.
Race HR = 166 average and 177 maximum.
Altitude = 6225' ASL
This year I monitored my HR more than ever. I thought that the altitude would cause my heart to race much higher, but that did not really happen. Kept my rate below 170, as planned and my speed was the same as at lower elevation. I cannot say that I hurt less though...:)
Canoeing 1:49'32.3 Average heart rate 152 bpm, 17.06 km.OC-6 Race: Alcatraz, Round the Rock. Flood tide, windy with rough conditions on San Francisco Bay. TE 5.0 and hit my max HR of 184 during a killer finish sprint.
Canoeing 0:07'28.8 Average heart rate 175 bpm, 1.12 km.OC-6, 500m Mens Senior Master Finals.
First Place NCOCA Championships 2011. About two and a half minutes of total effort getting a 400 pound outrigger canoe up to full speed, turning the 40 foot canoe around a buoy and then get her up and humming again! Six men all working together as a team. We had a powerful start, hit the turn well and accelerated back to take the win! A super HR spike - not much time to breathe. Yee-HA!

"It's always further than it looks. It's always taller than it looks. And it's always harder than it looks." - The 3 rules of mountaineering
The World groups are the best groups with monthly virtual competition reports for their official members.
Movescount sends a perverse meta-message by featuring duration as a positive dimension of exercise. You’ll notice that “the most active members” of the HIIT group are listed by descending order of workload. A much better measure would be to list exercise by intensity. A Swedish study of 44,000 men showed that men who exercised for 5 or more hours a week at age 30 were 19% more likely to develop an irregular heartbeat by 60 years of age than men who exercised 1 hour or less weekly. A German study found that people who exercised every day were more than twice as likely to die of a heart attack or stroke as those exercising 2-4 x a week. Research shows that 2 weeks of interval training can increase VO2max as much as up to 2 full months of endurance training.... Even with 90% lower training volume.Your goal when exercising should be to get the most intense workout in the shortest amount of time...then let your body fully recover. Maximize intensity, not exercise load.
The Ambit3 Connected family is launched and kicking!

The Season is coming alive! Hope everyone have done their winter training properly and ready to meet all the adventures the summer has to offer!
Folks, lets try and get this group moving! Let everyone in on your adventure plans and what you are doing to prepare for them. Ask questions, help each other out.

Karvonen method The Karvonen method factors in resting heart rate (HRrest) to calculate target heart rate (THR), using a range of 50–85% intensity: THR = ((HRmax − HRrest) × % intensity) + HRrest Example for HRmax of 180 and a HRrest of 70: 50% Intensity: ((180 − 70) × 0.50) + 70 = 125 bpm 85% Intensity: ((180 − 70) × 0.85) + 70 = 163 bpm Zoladz method An alternative to the Karvonen method is the Zoladz method, which derives exercise zones by subtracting values from HRmax: THR = HRmax − Adjuster ± 5 bpm Zone 1 Adjuster = 50 bpm Zone 2 Adjuster = 40 bpm Zone 3 Adjuster = 30 bpm Zone 4 Adjuster = 20 bpm Zone 5 Adjuster = 10 bpm Example for someone with a HRmax of 180: Zone 1(easy exercise): 180 − 50 ± 5 → 125 − 135 bpm Zone 4(tough exercise): 180 − 20 ± 5 → 155 − 165 bpm
Classic timer for 8 repetitions of 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off. It will display "Work 1", "Work 2" etc during the 20 seconds on and then "Rest " and a countdown during the 10 seconds rest period in between. It will also beep during the rest period. At the end of the 8th repetition, it displays "Again?". If the lap button is pressed, it resets the exercise counter and starts again.
Standard Tabata protocol interval timer. 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest, 8 Reps. Beeps on each change. Not compatible with the original Ambit. Image from http://www.flickr.com/photos/paperpariah/
