Sunday morning 25th about 9:30am

12,000m / 47:56.8 / 1:59.8 / 20spm / 133avgHR

Conversational row. Done nothing longer than 10k for a fair while so will build it back up to regular 60min rows to give the body and brain a recharge.

Tuesday night about 8:30pm :(

13,000m / 51:07.4 / 1:57.9 / 21spm / (relaxed) avgHR

To soon after dinner but time was limited, paid the price in the row. Dropped my drag back down to 111df - (still playing around after a couple of years) - I think it helps my leg speed which is not great.

I really like that. for me, doing 10min no variation is something that is difficult. Does anyone have anymore workouts like this?

5.5k run. First this season. just a slow jog with a pick up in the last k. 4:07 average, Final HR 164/200 after the quicker finish. Then I had a good stretching session! First runs can be tough afterwards!

Ben,

My main goal is to get 30' "in zone" (HR over 110) each day - as recommended for post-op cardio rehab. My workouts include a couple of days a week each of treadmill, walking at moderately high altitude (8000-9000 ft) and erging. For the erg sessions I like to include sufficient time for warmup and cooldown.

Currently I have been doing two 40' trapezoidal erg pieces a week, starting at 12 spm and increasing the rate every 2' up to 20 or 24 spm. Then I stay at 20 spm for 28' (or 24 spm for 20') and decrease the rate at two minute intervals to taper off at the finish. It takes several minutes to get up into the zone, but even with the taper, my HR is always still well in the zone at the end of the 40' session. I stick to rates that are easy to maintain by using the clock: 12/15/18/20/22/24. I also do a daily 10' skewed pyramid wakeup that is similar: 2' each at 12/15/18/20/12. The wakeup is done at a pace that is probably too slow to get my HR up into the zone - I haven't checked it.

Bob S.
