: Woops looks as if I'm having a bit of trouble with this computer
: thing:) Anyways, I was wondering if anyone could provide a little help
: in preperation for an upcoming 2,000meter erg test? Running? Stadiums?
: Lots'o time on the erg? What is the best (mental/physical) preperation
: to kick some serious _____? Thanks in advance.

My advice is as follows: (whether or not you should follow it is for you
1.) Get lots of rest
2.)Don't drink any milk/dairy products (Lactic acid)
3.)stop eating sugar for a few days.
4.) Basically, I would simply tailor a workout program to get
myself in shape. Chances are that upping your workouts for just a little
bit before an ereg test will not do you much.
5.) I have found this year that longer pieces on the erg tend to
have taught me to keep the split even throughout the piece, with the
splits getting better as I get farther into the piece. In the past, I
would start at a split tenseconds below my average split (/500m), and
finish the piece with a split that was ten seconds above my average. I
was always more tired than I am if I keep the splits steady, but I had no
improvement in time to show for the extra effort.
I hope that helps, even though I don't think it was very understandable
there towards the end.
