Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

122! Thats pretty good max speed Rod! I agree - no way I could get anywhere near that low I don't reckon! Rod did you up the DF to get that? For me today: 7500m - 2:02.8 at a strict 20spm. Was not planning to go quite that fast and in fact average was still sitting on 2:04.0 with 1,500 to go but up...

Re: Why can I do intervals but struggle with TTs?

Last point, I my view shorter intervals, do not match well with TT. Make the intervals longer with also, much longer rest and they will. Example not 250 reps, 500m for 1k. Not 500m, but 1k reps for 2k For 5k use 2/2.5k reps. Above 5/6k don,t think interval work helps that much more. Henry on the lo...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Great stuff Rod - another incredible display from you there - congratulations!

You speak about being braver with the early pace - for efforts like this and your recent HM record what sort of pacing strategy are you employing? I'm assuming some sort of negative split?

Re: Why can I do intervals but struggle with TTs?

Gammmmo (always need to count carefully I've got the number of 'm's right), Not coming from a position of a large number of TTs, but here's one idea - do some 'almost-TTs' - so the distance under question (1k for you at present) - in the 90-95% range of target Watts - just to get more used to the di...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

4x2000m/5:00r Average of 1:57.3 across the 4 intervals - certainly not super punchy but haven't done much in the last week and a bit so was happy enough with this. I reckon this is about my 'favourite' hard workout - in that I look froward to it, it sucks while I'm doing it but then has a good sense...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Marius, not sure how long ago you did it but can I for one say I appreciate you putting both the erg and ski numbers in your signature block!

And obviously also congratulations on the continuing great times!

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Great stuff on the 10x2,000m Rod - and as Gammmmo said thanks for sharing the details - most appreciated and look forward to seeing your progress over the middle distance efforts once you finish up on the HM phase! I've done very, very, little low HR work this year - my longer sessions have pretty m...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Pulled out an old classic today - 8x500m/3:30r. I felt like trying to get all 8 under 1:45 pace was a fair target given recent training load/form - and turned out it was about spot on - was a real struggle to go even half a second faster on the last here. Having said that, I do also think that a 1:4...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Always happy to get over 7.5k in 30 minutes. Was aiming for this to be closer to a strict 22spm but suffered some rate creep as I got tired!

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Rod one place you would see some discussion of SPI is if you read any of the old Wolverine Plan threads. One of the characteristics of the Level 4 (L4) workouts (the ones with very prescribed stroke rates and paces) is that they have a constant SPI (within some rounding tolerance). For example in my...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Did a hardish 6k today, in 23:46.5, so 1:58.8 average pace, spm somewhere between 24 and 25.

RPE solid, but the 24 minutes went by pretty quick, probably slightly easier on the whole than I expected.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

That's pretty quick Gammmmo - how tough were they? I mentioned last week I've not been doing enough sprints and so struggling to get the spm up - thought today I'd have a go at something to just get the feel of a higher rating - so did 30x:30/:30r r30 (15 strokes on each rep) - a workout that certai...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I missed the British Record for 60-69 Lwts by a measly 5.6 seconds! (0.1 on pace) Impressive as always Rod! Shame to have missed the record but no doubt you will get it next time! Did you know what the record was going into the row? Today I did a 60' WP L4 - 176/188/188/184/184/184 for 1,104 total ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Nice row, Ro. Interesting to see how many 1:57.4 and .2s there are even though you were blind Glenn I have been doing a bit of WP L4 work using a 1:48 reference, for which the r24 pace is 1:57, so I'm guessing the reasonably consistent SPI (= Watts/spm) across those workouts has just made a power p...
