Thursday: October Cross Team Challenge 15 x 1′ /1′ rest

Landlocked due to boat damage.  So I decided to substitute my OTW short interval session with an erg based short interval session.  The CTC looked like a pretty good match to what I needed to do.

Plan: (erg on slides)

  1. 20 minute fletcher style warmup
  2. 15 x 1′ /1′ rest
  3. pace target: under 1:40
  4. rate: over 30

That went better than I thought it would.  I beat the target and had enough oomph left over to deliver a punishing last rep.  I thought I was going to puke, pass out and wet myself at the end of the last rep, so I guess I pushed it hard enough.

This puts me in about the “right” place in terms of team and overall scoring for the CTC.  And it was a really good workout.

      Yep. If this challenge is 2k-2 that would put my current 2k at 6:40 which would really surprise me. I would have guessed my current 2k is more like a 6:50 or so.

      I was thinking about it and I think the challenge would not scale the same for different athletes and has more to do with how quickly you recover during the breaks than a direct link with 2k performance.

      Either that, or I am not digging deep enough in 2k trials!
