Tuesday: I had to work through exercise time yesterday morning to prep a presentation for a meeting later in the day. I hoped to sneak off to the gym between meetings during the day, but everything ran long. so it was a Bonus Rest Day! I didn’t need any more rest.
Wednesday: Still dealing with high workload, but I managed to plow through it in time to squeeze 60 minutes on the erg. I decided to no “waste” any of it as rest time, so I just rowed straight through.
Good session. I was bumping up against my moveable cap. The rule I’m using is:
- 145 or under during the first 20 minutes
- 150 or under for 20-40 minutes
- 155 or under beyond 40 minutes
I was fine through about 30 minutes, then I needed to slow down to stay legal. At 40 minutes, with another 5 beats to play with, I went back to 175W, and then slowed again after 5 minutes or so. I decided to reward myself for being such a good boy by allowing me to make up the lost wattage in the last minute.
Tomorrow: 3 x 20 or 4 x 20 depending on how much time I have.
