Sunday: 2 x 45′ / 4′ rest (HR cap at 155)

The plan called for:

5-Mar W8-D M3 2 x 30′ / 3′ MP or slower 80.0% (149)

But I have been missing endurance sessions and cheating down the durations, so I decided to go long.

5-Mar W8-D M3 2 x 45′ / 4′ MP or slower 80.0% (149)

I did this session at home on the dynamic.  Still not sure how I feel about it.  I feel like I am slower, and it sure is “grindy-er”.  It  makes a lot of noise and it does not feel smooth.  I still wonder if something is wrong with it.  I have to find another dynamic somewhere to compare.

The workout was uneventful.  My HR shot up a bit quicker than it should have, but plateaued around 150 for the first piece and 155 for the second.

3-5a

I did this same session on a static erg back on January 27th.  Here’s a comparison

  • Power was the within a couple watts.
  • Stroke rate was a bit higher on the dynamic
  • HR was persistently higher on the dynamic.
