Training derailed today because of a water main break. :shock:
No water. No shower. No erging. Back at it tomorrow.

Good luck tomorrow David. I'm sure you'll secure a really fast PB! Look forward to hearing about it.

Took yesterday off too. My wife had to work last night and it was our 27th Wedding Anniversary!! I spent a couple hours with her before she had to work (and my normal workout is at lunch). Was planning on rowing last night but got caught up with work until nearly 8 PM and there was no way I was rowing at 8 PM at night. I'll do a 6K easy and a harder 6K (or 5K) today. I think my body was also telling me it needed just a bit of a break. Next week was a slight taper week anyway, so not a far deviation from plan.

Good luck tomorrow David!!

Thanks all, happy early one to you also Stu! Yeah, my wife deserves a big ass award for being married to me this long!! :lol: :lol: :lol: All this rowing and working out stuff takes a spouse that's somewhat supportive in your efforts too. I know we get the benefits of better health and we're stronger (and hopefully happier) by exercising, but she's also seen the aches and pains and me hobbling around at times and such. She's also the one that let me get the rower before her exercise bike. I have a pretty awesome lady/wife and she's the best mom I could ask for as well for my kids, so I'm very fortunate!

@ Mike, she sounds great. It's always good to hear people are still in love years on from marrying. Ergers are terrible to live with when we under achieve/ injure ourselves...well I am anyway :wink:

Aren't wives great!? :lol:
I will give a shout out from the other side to balance things out a bit. Been married almost 14 years to THE best guy around. Being married to him gets better (and easier) each year. He is a cyclist mainly, but does some erging in the winter as cross training along with his Computrainer training.

My session today was a 14K alternating pace & SR every 2K to keep it interesting. Happy I was able to hold both. Strapless. Felt good.
Tomorrow I am going to try something new - an "L4" workout from the Wolverine Plan of 15x3:00 on 1:00RI @ 6K+2 pace as the goal. I may die ... or adjust my sails if necessary. Happy weekend, All!

Another great rate changer Lori! Blotted your copybook with that one 2:25 av. :wink: Got my 5k pb on a 22-26-22-26-22 change on the Ks. Not the most efficient approach but it certainly focuses the mind. :shock:

What are the pace and rate changes on the proposed interval workout and where do these fall timewise? Never seen Wolverine L4 work in interval format. 10’ or 6’ segments, changes @ 2’ always is what I remember.

Just flew home from 6 days of skiing. I was itching to erg the whole time I was away but had no access to a machine. Got on the erg when I returned from the airport for a SS 10k just to ease back into the BPP mode. I struggled with a 2:14 pace today after missing less than one week! I hope to move on to my scheduled week 19 of the BPP without too much of a setback.
