In the fitness center around noon.
- 4 x 12′ / 1’30”
- Rate: 22
- Pace: 2:01 – 2:05
- HR Limit: 155
The intent of this session is to work at a specified pace and stroke rate. For me, it is also a chance to focus on the new stuff that I need to fix in my posture and technique.
The biggest challenge I had was getting to the target stroke rate and rowing lightly enough to avoid going too fast. I ended up failing on both accounts. My stroke rate ended up a bit low, and my pace ended up a little fast.

It got a bit better as my legs got a bit tired. But I feel like I can do a better job with it. I was happy to see my HR plateau around 150 in the workout. That’s a hopeful sign.

I’m curious about these CAT V and CAT VI designation.
Are they from your new program? How do they compare to the L1, L2 etc. nomenclature?

Hi Ivan, I am working Marlene Royle and those are her terms. They don’t line up exactly with the L1,L2, L3 world, but span a wider range.
Cat I: all out sprint
Cat II: 2k pace (L1)
Cat III: ~ 5k pace (L2)
Cat IV: between 6K and 10K pace (fast end of L3)
Cat V: intensive endurance pace (slow end of L3)
Cat VI: extensive endurance pace
