Pie charts:

I rowed it as a “just row” which was good, because in the second set, I forgot to start the second interval. My thoughts carried me away and when I looked at the PM again, I was 30 seconds late, so I decided to start one minute late. Luckily, the interval editor on rowsandall.com allows for that. There were a few other intervals where I started a few seconds late, leading to a worse average. I basically pulled 1:41 or 1:42 pace, occasionally 1:40 or 1:39.

Again, I didn’t really know how to pace this, but the long rest between the sets made this quite irrelevant. The main constraint was the stroke rate. I personally would have rated up a bit, and you can see from the stats that I did hit 30spm most of the time, and rarely went down to 28spm.

After that, I did a 2km cooling down.

As I have two lighter weeks, I stay with this plan, but I will have to diplomatically ask our head coach how he determins this plan’s intensity.
