The intervals that never end…

Posted by thepeteplan on August 24, 2009

I worked out before this session that 1:49.5 would give 23k total distance, and 1:45.0 would give 24k total distance. After working that out to be a possible target pace for 24k, there was really no going back. I knew early in the first rep it wouldn’t be possible today though, but decided to stick to pace for the first rep anyway.

The session:

24mins = 6861m / 1:44.9 / 27
6min rest
20mins = 5505m / 1:49.0 / 26
5min rest
16mins = 4385m / 1:49.5 / 26
4min rest
12mins = 3288m / 1:49.5 / 26
3min rest
8mins = 2194m / 1:49.4 / 26
2min rest
4mins = 1120m / 1:47.1 / 27

Totals: 23353m / 1:47.9 / 26 / 84mins

A long session that’s for sure! The first rep at sub 1:45 was a bad idea, and made the session tougher than it needed to be. I had laptop troubles on rowpro at the start, but luckily the other guys waited around for me at the start when I lost connection, making us start about 10mins late in the end. I was praying for those laptop problems to re-surface in the second half of the session, but no such luck.
