Rowpro has it’s upsides and downsides. The downside is that it tempts you in to rowing when you really should be resting. Sunday is generally my scheduled rest day, but yesterday I saw a 5k planned on rowpro, and took it as a good opportunity to put a first score in for the CTC. Aim to just break 17mins.
5k = 16:59.1 / 1:41.9 / 30
Then today’s scheduled session for the PP08 group was 4 x 10mins with 2min rest between reps. The first 3 reps were to be done at 1 second faster than 60min pb pace <- I have only just remembered this as I write this entry, as I mistakenly did them at 60min pb pace instead!
4 x 10min / 2min rest:
2851m / 1:45.2 / 28
2852m / 1:45.1 / 28
2853m / 1:45.1 / 29
2873m / 1:44.4 / 29
Ok, so I actually did the first 3 reps 1sec slower in pace than I told the others to do them. Though it was far too hot and stuffy in my living room, and I did them on rowpro in the hope that someone might join me in the later reps (they didn’t). So in reality the average pace I actually rowed at was probably a few tenths faster. I really should consult my targets spreadsheet before rowing!
