Feeling it from the weekend, but went in after 3 anyways to get in the first rowing session of the week. When I planned out my week yesterday I fit it to the week instead of paying more attention to my body. Bad idea.
Row – 2k Pacing
- 3x1250m (5:00 rest)
- Set 1: 1250m at 5 splits slower than 2k pace (1:46)
- Set 2: 1250m at 4 splits slower than 2k pace (1:45)
- Set 3: 1250m at 3 splits slower than 2k pace (1:44)
- 12:00 Rest
- 600m for time (first 200m at 2k pace – 1:41)
It was a battle even get keep that first 1,250 meters on pace with a needed push at the end. I was able to get the second one close somehow, but it all fell apart in the third. My legs were smoked.
We could take 8-12 minutes of rest so I took full advantage because I was a bit out of it. Not too bad on the 600 but I had no more to give. Took me a long time to be able to leave the gym after that. I thought I might squat after rowing, but there was no way in hell.
I definitely should have rested today. Now I need to rest tomorrow so I don’t overreach after this lousy performance. Listen to your body!
