2 weeks of group training

Posted by thepeteplan on September 9, 2009

I’m taking part in a physiology trial at work at the moment that a couple of rowing friends are also doing, so this is giving us the opportunity of training together most days after the trial is over. Good for motivation, but spending the day time sweating in a chamber is perhaps not ideal for the performance.

Tuesday:

30mins = 8189m / 1:49.9 / 20
5min splits:
1:52.0 / 20
1:50.8 / 20
1:49.9 / 20
1:49.4 / 21
1:49.0 / 20
1:48.3 / 20

A good solid endurance piece. Today we were less inclined to do a proper session, so instead decided on a bit of sprint play, and I tried a 250m piece for a facebook monthly challenge:

250m = 39.3 / 1:18.6 / 51
Splits:
100m = 1:19.0 / 50
200m = 1:18.5 / 50
250m = 1:19.0 / 53

I then thought now I was more warmed up (I did a solid 2k warm up for this) I could go faster, it turned out 90seconds was not sufficient rest after a fast 250m sprint…

250m = 39.6 / 1:19.2 / 51
Splits:
100m = 1:18.5 / 54
200m = 1:19.0 / 49
250m = 1:21.0 / 52

But not bad for a second effort. The plan for tomorrow is currently 2 x 20mins, first rate restricted, second negative splitted with increasing rate and pace.
