This is the mirror post to this one, so I suggest you read Greg’s observation first. The training was 2x10x500m/80″, with 4 minutes between the sets of 10. And with a rate cap of 26spm.
This was on my training plan and Greg agreed to do it as well, so we could test some of the new “team” functionality on rowsandall.com.
I will go straight to the results.

And the graphs:
It was a doable workout. On paper it looks very brutal, but I didn’t have any problems rowing it. Hence I accelerated in the second set, by focusing on long strokes.
While rowing, I was wondering how Greg was doing. I imagined 1:44 pace. After we both uploaded our workouts to rowsandall.com, we could compare:
So you can see that we were really close in terms of heart rate and power. On the dynamic, Greg upped the stroke rate a bit.
Here are the metrics plots, just because I have them. Nothing special to observe, except that I did a good job holding length.
