Speed work begins

Posted by thepeteplan on August 26, 2010

It’s time for speed work to begin. The British Indoor Rowing champs is now within 3 months, so it is about time to start to remind my legs what faster rowing feels like.

16 x 250m / 90sec rest:
1:32.0 / 33
1:31.8 / 34
1:31.4 / 34
1:31.2 / 34
1:31.2 / 34
1:31.2 / 34
1:31.0 / 34
1:30.6 / 34
1:29.8 / 36
1:29.8 / 36
1:29.8 / 36
1:29.6 / 36
1:29.4 / 36
1:29.2 / 36
1:29.2 / 36
1:25.4 / 39

4k = 12:01.5 / 1:30.1 / 35

Obviously a conservative starting pace judging by the sub 1:30 second 8, and the final rep at 1:25.4. These are the sort of sessions I need to begin with, then increasing the rep length at this sort of pace, in order to get my 2k pace back down again. An enjoyable session that I can definitely attack harder next time.
