Sunday: 60′ Steady State (3×20’/1′ rest)

My wife and I had plans in the afternoon, so I jumped on the erg as soon as I got up to get some meters in.  I was quite sore from the race on Saturday.  My ribs, my adductors and my arms were all quite sore.  I guess there was a lot of “conventional” movements.

Like Saturday afternoon, I started at lower power and ramped up over 15 minutes.  Again, my HR stayed nice and low.  A little bit of drift in the last 20 minutes.  Lactates were 1.2 at 20′, 1.1 at 40′, and weirdly 3.2 at 60 minutes.  It might have been a blown reading, but it might indicate that I had crossed over to building up some lactate in the last few minutes of the last 20′.  No matter.  I think rowing at a 2:04 (183W) pace for steady state until I see <2.0 at 80′ is the safe bet for now.

      Two data points. In 2014, I was training at 200W and my season best 2K was 6:37.6 (355W). A ratio of 56%. I haven’t done an all out 2K for a while, but I think I would probably pull about a 6:48 right now, which is 330W. If you take 180W as my training power, that is 54%. So, an initial guess of 55% would be a starting point.

      Interesting change from then to now. I was at about 80% of HRR at the end of the 200W workouts and I am at 75% at the end of the 180W workouts, but with similar lactates. Shows the change of HR correlation to lactate as fitness improves.
