3 x 10mins / 2min rest

Posted by thepeteplan on October 4, 2013

I haven’t rowed since the 600m reps on Tuesday. I said then that I was feeling like I had a lingering illness, so decided that 2 days of rest from exercise was the best course of action. I would have eased back in with a steady session today, but as some of my coached athletes were signed up for the final core session of the week on rowpro it was a good opportunity to join in. I set up my new erg in the living room (did I mention I had a new erg?), with rowpro then on a 32″ TV rather than the laptop screen.

It was a good job I decided to use the big screen as there were 16 people signed up for each of the 10min reps. The new erg is a black Model D with PM3, picked up barely second hand with less than 15k on the clock! So I have a well looked after Model D with PM4 for sale if anyone is interested? I don’t need two ergs at home!

Anyway, on to the session. The target pace for this one was 1:46 to 1:47 for the first two reps and a faster last. I still have in mind that I am pushing for a 1:45 paced straight 10k though, which is why I have been doing the sessions in this progression at 1:45 or just under. But with 10min reps, and having been under the weather this week, I decided that this would be a step too far, especially with rowpro starts. So I decided that 1:46 was a better aim for the first 2 reps.

3 x 10mins / 2min rest:

2832m / 1:45.9 / 28

2834m / 1:45.8 / 28

2862m / 1:44.8 / 29

I enjoyed that session.
