Sunday: Half Marathon on the erg

To make Boris happy, I’m going to try to work up to some longer slower sessions on weekends.

Today was a Half Marathon for the Concept2 challenge this month.  I’m somewhere between planning, hoping and dreading doing a full marathon in  the next couple weeks.

Nothing to exciting to report.  Wanted to keep it a low impact, aerobic row, so i set a hard HR limit at 157.  I started at about a 2:03 pace and held that nearly an hour.  I slowed down to stay under the cap until I got bored with a thousand meters to go.

I’ve done a lot of 4×20′ sessions, which is basically the same thing, but it seems a lot easier with the breaks.

Tomorrow:  I think a good hard 4×2500 at head race rate (>26), then I fly off to Orlando for a couple days.

        Had to look up for “shucks”. No seriously, Greg… I find it really very amazing how hard you work on yourself, technique wise and training wise. From different conversations in FS forum, I know that you bash your head very hard to pass trough. I honor that you ask AND that you try it, even if the result of the answer it’s no “that funny”. Sincerely… kudos for this behavior. ^O^
