I know I was a bit "flat" with my training for a few weeks after reaching my first million meters, which was a big goal for me. That's why you'll see me encourage people who post their accomplishing their first million to set a new goal ASAP ... to hopefully skip the down cycle that can occur. I've heard this from a number of people, so I feel it's a common occurance that people need to be aware of and try to proactively combat.<br /> </td></tr></table><br /><br />The anticlimax syndrome can be a real problem. After reaching a major goal, I find that my mind is just not ready to pick up on a new one. The 80+ sub 8' that had been my goal even as long as ten years ago was a major peak for me and I was left with a void afterwards. I literally "crashed at the B's" three weeks later - mostly for lack of incentive. Since then, I have reduced my erging time to about 20% of what I had been doing for the previous 7 months. Fortunately, some of that time has been well spent boosting up my weak records in the non 2k rankable events. I am probably coasting on the conditioning that I had done in the 7 months and I assume that it is going to run out on me soon, but it was nice to pick up some PB's this month (especially since they seem to be WR's as well). Now it is time to look for non-erging goals that will get me outdoors to enjoy the coming spring weather.<br /><br />Bob S.

There is a nice discussion going on regarding Paul Smith's s10ps (strapless, 10 meters per stroke) training on this <a href="http://concept2.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=3974" target="_blank">thread</a>.<br />I, for one, don't remember Mike ever mentioning it was relevant to the WP. <br /><br />Would it be beneficial to do some of the L2 or L3 workouts at 10 mps ?<br /><br />Thanks<br /><br />Francois
