Went in to CFi around 12:30 or so.
3 Rounds NFT
- 8 Reverse Hyper (210#)
- 5 Back Squats (45#)
Strength: Pause Back Squats
E2M with 3 second pause in the hole
After the first set with 255# I had some negative thoughts of getting hurt and went to my bag to get out the belt. But I was able to switch gears and told myself not to be afraid; I’d be ok as long as I concentrated on good positions each rep. So no belt and Nanos all the way today.
- 4:30 Rest
Prescribed stroke rates:
- 2,000m at rate 19, 2,000m at rate 20
- 2,000m at rate 20, 2,000m at rate 21
- 2,000m at rate 21, 2,000m at rate 22
With no pacing recommendations I’m still just making shit up for these longer slower sessions. I looked back and saw that I did about 2:00/500m at 19s/m for a straight 2k with resting last week, so I added 10 seconds and went from there. Wrote it all on the board before starting.
The pacing I picked worked out really well. It was by no means easy, but I wasn’t falling down exhausted when I was done either. Tough session though.
