The plan was a (pretty long) steady state workout, but a rest day seemed the wiser option. I came back from work really tired and just couldn’t get myself to sit down on the erg. A rest day.
So, today I was double motivated to do that workout. Also, I had the urge to do a full out minute as a stand-alone piece, even though I had done a one minute effort a month ago. So I modified the Pete Plan Pyramid to suit my goals:
- stand-alone full out minute
- one minute rest
- 2min/2min, 3min/3min, 4min/4min, 3min/3min, 2min/2min and finally 1 minute
This is a bit longer hard rowing than the original session, and a bit shorter rests. Also, starting with a full out minute instead of pacing this smartly makes it a bit harder. Actually, it turned out to make everything after the one minute effort pretty slow and painful. But it was a good experience. Sometimes the painful place is a good one to be in.
Here is the one minute effort:
And here is the entire workout (the two separate rows glued together on the Rowsandall.com site):
Holding something between 1:47 pace and 1:52 pace in the intervals:
Today was pretty bad weather. It snowed hard all day. All roads into Brno were blocked by accidents.
