Monday: I shoulda taken a rest day

I was wiped out all day after my 20k adventure.  (Maybe I pushed a bit harder than I thought).  Monday was a holiday, but the weather was terrible, so my wife and I decided to head back a bit early.  Apparently everyone on Cape Cod decided to do the same thing because we were in a massive traffic jam and it took us over 4 hours to get hour (vs the normal 2 hours).

Once we were home, I decided to do the  next M2 session.

M2 3 x 20′ / 2′ MP, 10KP, HMP 90.0% (167)

I was doing this on the dynamic (and I am beginning to really dislike the machine).  I felt awful.  Just rowing the first 30 minutes at marathon pace was torture.  My HR didn’t climb that much but my RPE was through the roof.  I decided to bail after the first 20 minutes.

Part of the problem was that I didn’t respect the fact that I get more watts on the static than I do on the dynamic, but really, the big issue was that I was just spent.
