      The 28 to 18 transitions are brutal. At the end of the 5 minutes, every fiber in your body wants to stop rowing. The first couple of strokes I had to let the split go. I tried to be under 2:11 by the end of the first minute. As I got into the second half of the workout, I was only feeling OK in the last minute or so of the r18 section, and I was really taxed from about 30 seconds into the r28 section.

      I’m not sure I understand the theory behind this workout, but it sure builds character.

    The other day I wanted to try that workout for novelty, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. It’s a lot of time ‘in the zone’ and the r18 pieces also seem stiff. How’s your recovery after it?

      It’s the hardest workout of the week. The r18 paces are basically a reasonable endurance pace and it’s hard to hold them as you get deep into the workout. I felt pretty drained through the rest of the day and I was glad I had an easier workout to do this morning.
