Another training recap

Posted by thepeteplan on February 1, 2009

My lack of blog updates last week was due to a business trip for the majority of the week, so a quick roundup of training since I last updates, and then it should be back to regular updates this week.

Sunday 1st Feb:

30mins on the turbo (bike) early this morning, just nice and easy 200 watts average. I did plan on doing an erg session later in the day but I’ve been too busy (writing training plans for other people).

Saturday 31st Jan:

A 10k rowed with one of the guys I coach, both going for a pb. He made it, I didn’t – it wasn’t there in my legs unfortunately:

1k splits:
1:42.6 / 29
1:43.1 / 29
1:43.0 / 29
1:43.0 / 29
1:43.7 / 28
1:45.0 / 28
1:45.9 / 28
1:46.1 / 28
1:45.9 / 28
1:42.6 / 29

10k = 34:42.2 / 1:44.1 / 28

Still a solid 10k time, but the pace had to be backed off after 15mins or I was risking a more severe encounter with a brick wall later in the row!

Thursday 29th Jan:

4 x 1250m / 4min rest:
4:03.2 / 1:37.2 / 31
4:03.4 / 1:37.3 / 31
4:04.8 / 1:37.9 / 32
4:07.2 / 1:38.8 / 32

5000m = 16:18.2 / 1:37.8 / 31

[w/u 2k = 1:51.9 / 24, rest intervals = 1706m, w/d = 500m]

I think the lack of much zip in my legs on Saturday was a combination of this session, and then a visit to the altitude chamber at work on Friday afternoon for some hypoxia training, the same as this technology reporter did for the BBC website:

And finally on Tuesday last week I did, in a hotel gym in Cornwall:

30mins = 8133m / 1:50.7 / 25
