2k training group – Boston 2013

Posted by thepeteplan on December 17, 2012

Due to popular demand I will be running a short training group leading up to the World Indoor Rowing Championships. The Crash Bs are being held on Sunday 17th February 2013 in Boston, USA. The training group will run for 8 weeks, beginning on Sunday 23rd December 2012.

As in previous years the 8 week plan will be focused on a 2k race or time trial to be held on Sunday 17th February, but racing that 2k in Boston is not a pre-requisit to be able to join the group training.

Training will be sent in 4 two week blocks, with each session laid out in detail with personal target paces, and guidance about how to approach the session. The plan will consist of 3 core sessions each week, with the core sessions being predominantly interval sessions with progressive pace targets over the 8 week period. Advice will be given on how to approach further steady distance training to supplement the harder sessions. All sessions will be set using pace and stroke rate targets, no heart rate limits will be set.

Optimisation of technique, stroke rate, drag factor, pacing and race preparation will be discussed during the 8 weeks. You should come to race day with a good appreciation of your current capabilities, and the tools to enter the race with the ability to execute a solid race at the limit of those capabilities.

The cost to take part in the group is a one off fee of £40.

If you are interested, or want to register to take part in the training group please email me at by Friday 21st December 2012 at the latest. No late additions this year due to the short duration group.
