Inside, on the erg. I originally planned to do it on slides, but I couldn’t get them set up so they were sliding freely. They kept binding so that I would end up banging against the end while I was warming up, so I took the erg off of them for the rest of the workout.
The plan was
- 4 x ( 6 x 1′ / 1′ rest ) / 5′ rest
- Rate target: 30
- Pace target: 1:40
While I did the workout, I had enough time to think through the plan. That would be 24 minutes at faster than 2K pace. Even with the generous rests, that seemed a bit excessive. Compared to other sprint workouts like a 4 x 1k or 8 x 500, they have about 14 minutes of work. Anyway, during the first 5 minute rest I decided to stop after 3 sets. It certainly felt like enough.
I wasn’t all that sure about pace, since I haven’t been doing many sprint sessions on the erg lately, but 1:40 turned out to be a good pick. I was able to beat it by a bit, but the last set really stung.
I am very happy with that.
Now I am over Germany, about to descend into Munich. I’ll be connecting over to Stuttgart, and then going straight into meetings all day. So no training for Tuesday. Hopefully, I will be able get a workout in tomorrow morning.
