60mins = 16634m (1:48.2)

Posted by thepeteplan on August 13, 2010

As I posted on Wednesday, today was a 60min “test” with a fellow erg athlete. I say “test” because it was never my intention to go 100% for the best distance I could achieve, but more to act as a pace maker for the guy I was rowing with (who was aiming for 16400m+ and a pb) with a push at the end.

10min splits:
1:48.9 / 26
1:48.9 / 26
1:48.9 / 26
1:48.8 / 26
1:48.1 / 26
1:45.4 / 27

60mins = 16634m / 1:48.2 / 26

It physically felt very comfortable for that first 40mins, and I made the decision there to gradually push the pace from 15mins out for the finish. A second at a time roughly every 3 to 4 mins with a strong push in the last 2mins. Casey, who I was rowing with, managed a big pb with a 16499m, which was great work.
