4 x 2k with Eddie

Posted by thepeteplan on January 13, 2012

I met up with Eddie “Eventfull” Ventress at my gym in Farnborough earlier this afternoon for some 4 x 2k interval fun. I think this is one of the mentally toughest interval sets, and one that you have to be realistic in your target to row it well. I don’t like getting slower in these sets, so like to pace it tough, but with the last rep being the fastest.

4 x 2k / 5min rest:
6:49.7 / 1:42.4 / 29
6:49.7 / 1:42.4 / 29
6:49.6 / 1:42.4 / 30
6:46.4 / 1:41.6 / 30

8k = 27:15.3 / 1:42.2 / 29

Happy with the set, better than I’ve done recently. Eddie is strong, his slowest rep was quicker (by some way) than my fast last, and he is still improving pretty quickly. For those who don’t know Eddie, he is fairly new to the sport and races in the 50+ hwt category. He has already managed a 6:22 for a race 2k in his first few months in the sport, so is a hot tip for major medals in the next few seasons.

I took a rest day yesterday in order to be fairly fresh for this session, but on Wednesday did a fairly strong 8k on rowpro:

8k = 28:24.3 / 1:46.5 / 25
1k splits:
1:47.1 / 25
1:47.6 / 25
1:47.6 / 25
1:47.4 / 25
1:47.2 / 25
1:46.6 / 26
1:45.8 / 27
1:42.8 / 29
