Up at 5:15.  In the gym around 7:00AM.

The Plan:

  • 10 minute warmup on the treadmill (15% grade, 3mph)
  • L2 Waterfall
    • 3K / 2.5K / 2K
    • 5′ rest
    • pace target: 1:54
    • rate: 24-26
    • Technique: knees together
    • HR limit: none

I’m trying to warm up off the erg to try to make sure that I don’t take any hard pulls until my back is limbered up.  Today was a brisk walk up a 15% grade.  My HR was still below the bottom of my UT2 range by the time I had gone 10 minutes, but I had broken a sweat.


This was right on the edge of my capability.  I eased up a bit in the 1000m to 500m to go in the last two intervals, but just by about a second or so.  It was enough to make it through.  Each interval, I counted strokes from beginning to end.  Between 96 and 100 strokes per 1000m.
