2k Pace Building

2K at 5 seconds faster than race pace. You must get to that pace in 3 to 4 pulls. Once you can't hold the pace, stop and rest 2 min, then begin again until 2K is completed.
Rest 5-10 minutes then:

1k at 5 seconds faster than race pace. You must get to that pace in 3 to 4 pulls. Once you can't hold the pace, stop and rest 1 min, then begin again until 1k is completed.

I messed up and rested 2 minutes in the 1k segment.  I dont think it would have mattered as i had very little to go.

Did much better than last week.

Endurance pyramid

Endurance pyramid:
Row a time pyramid of 1/2/3/4/5/4/3/2/1 minutes ‘on’ with 1 minute ‘off’ after each. The ‘on’ segments should be done at 75-80%; row easy on the ‘off’ minutes. If this workout is done properly you should be just about able to maintain pressure and form during the last minute ‘on’.

So row easy for the minute off was subbed with lie on the floor and try to recover before the next interval.    I clearly fell apart at the final 2 minute interval.  Who cant come back for the final minute?

6x 1000m / 3 min easy rest.
Row 6 x 1000 m. Row for 3 min at low S/M between each 1000. Be consistent across the board.

Endurance Row.   5-20 seconds slower than 2k.   Messed up input of wod into monitor. From the look at the data generating 270 Watts is hard but not red lining.  Once Im up over 300 then its a short fuse.

ReTest - ROW Series II Light the Fuse

Re-test of "Light the Fuse"

Row 100m, Rest 30 seconds 
Row 200m, Rest 30 seconds 
Row 300m, Rest 30 seconds 
Row 400m, Rest 30 seconds 
Row 500m, Rest 30 seconds 
Row 2,000m                           

Scores are:
A) Time for 2,000m
B) Total time

I made a mess of this workout the first time I did it, totally under-estimating how little the 30 sec recovery was actually going to help.   Going out way too fast ended up burning me out completely.    My plan for the event this time around was to stay close to my 2k pace and hold on as long as possible.   I knew I would be giving time back in the first 4 intervals but the last 2 would be more than enough to make up for it.
