8 week to go – speed work begins

Posted by thepeteplan on December 26, 2010

Today marks 8 weeks to go before the world indoor rowing championships in Boston USA. I have booked to go partly because I am coaching a number of athletes who will be competing there as the conclusions of the BIRC to Boston training group, partly to socialise with old friends who I haven’t seen since last year, but also because I enjoy the pressure of racing and the motivation and focus it brings to the training. So despite anything I might say to the contrary over the next 8 weeks, my intention is to train such that I can row 2000m as fast as possible on that one day in 8 weeks time.

Today was the first session since before the British Indoor Rowing championships focussed on the 2k.

8 x 500m / 2:30 rest:
1:35.2 / 32
1:34.9 / 32
1:34.6 / 33
1:34.4 / 33
1:34.2 / 33
1:34.0 / 33
1:33.8 / 33
1:33.8 / 33

4k = 12:34.8 / 1:34.3 / 32

The baseline is set, now 8 weeks left to work hard and put in the hard metres.
