Phase 1 complete

Posted by thepeteplan on December 24, 2011

Phase 1 of the World Indoor Rowing Championships build up ended yesterday with a 5k time trial. The aim for this was to break 17:10, and it went as follows:

5k = 17:09.3 / 1:42.9 / 28
500m splits:
1:42.8 / 28
1:43.3 / 28
1:43.3 / 28
1:43.4 / 28
1:43.5 / 28
1:43.4 / 28
1:43.5 / 28
1:43.4 / 28
1:43.2 / 28
1:39.5 / 30

I finished the week off today with a steady distance piece. To make it more interesting I rowed a random distance and tried to pace it to finish in an exactly round time, it went well !

14243m / 1:55.8 / 22 = 55:00.0
2500m splits:
1:56.0 / 22
1:56.0 / 22
1:55.9 / 22
1:55.9 / 22
1:56.0 / 22
1:54.7 / 22 (last 1743m)

Next is an 8 week phase leading in to the Crash B’s in Boston, USA. This phase is solely aimed towards that 2k race. The hard work begins here!
