Today I did a Taper training as prescribed by our coach.
- 3km Warming Up
- 6 times 15 hard strokes, rest 2 to 3 minutes
- Start+250m at 2k pace
- Cooling Down
I wasn’t sure if the 15 hard strokes were to be done at a high stroke rate or a low stroke rate.

One thing that I am thinking about a lot is increasing power by stroke rate, rather than by increasing the drive force. I see that in my “power” intervals, I go substantially higher in “Work per Stroke”, which means that I increase the average drive force. A risk of doing that is that your muscle fatigue sets in earlier than aerobic fatigue (if that is a valid term). For tomorrow’s 2k, I want to rate high from the beginning (above 30spm) but keep the power checked at 1:44 pace, at least in the first 1500m.
Here are the charts that show what I am doing:
