Monday – steady state

There is a lot going on at work so I couldn’t leave early and row on the lake. Couldn’t row in the morning and arrive late either. So in the evening I just sat down for an uninspired steady state row on the erg.

To force myself to row at least for an hour, I dialed up a 14k. On the erg, I have a strong preference for distance based rows.

To make it more interesting, I did a 10 stroke push every 1000m, at varying stroke rates. That generated this beautiful plot:

Average pace was very slow. Over 2:08, including the “warming up” and “cooling down” 2k on the beginning and end of the row. Total time was 60:00.3. Damn. I rowed 0.3 seconds more than I wanted!
