Train Hard : RowPerfect Session

So, back on it and getting warmed up for next week’s testing.

Tonight’s piece was the 40 minute favourite!

10 minutes warm up at rate 18 followed by 6 sets of:

  • 2 minutes, rate 18, 5km split time + 20 seconds
  • 3 minutes, rate 26-28, 5km split time

So tonight I thought I’d go for it, and the aim was to see how low I could get my split in the 3 minutes.

I’m rather pleased to say I broke the 2 minute barrier, and was able to keep it there consistently!

My final split for the last 3 minutes was 1.58.9, although I went over the stroke rate slightly, but that’s the over-excitement of the final few strokes kicking in!

My leg managed to pull through the full 40 minutes, so I’m happy with that, however I still get the start of cramping in my glutes which is never pleasant. But fingers crossed I’ve now worked out how to push without triggering my adductors. I just need to focus on strengthening my glutes!
