Holy shit!  That went well.  Comparing the stats from last time on the 5x2k

  • Avg Pace: 2:09.6 (2:12.9)
  • Stroke rate: 26.9 (25.9)
  • Avg HR: 166 (169)

I certainly faded a bit in the last two reps.  In the last rep especially, I just couldn’t get the boat moving in the middle of the rep.  I was having paranoid fantasies about weeds on the fin and mythical head winds in the whole middle 1000m.  Once I got to about 500m left to go, I started pushing harder and counting down the strokes.  That helped pull the avg pace down a bit.

Tomorrow:  The plan calls for 4 x 3000 / 1′ rest r20 (HR limit at 80% HRR).  That would be a HR cap at 157.  I think I will row to a 75% HRR cap instead (150).  Should be interesting trying to keep the rating up, the strokes long, and the pressure light.
