Lazy Saturday: 4 x 20′ / 3′

I got up around 9 and wasted time until around 11.  Then I thought it would be a good idea to get my training out of the way.  So, down to the basement.

I haven’t been mentioning it, but most days, before I erg I am doing the corrective exercises that my PT prescribed for me.  Today that meant.

10 x 10 sec of this…

I should have, but didn’t do the exercises for my oblique abdominals.  In addition, during the rests between the 20′ pieces, I did 10 reps of an abdominal exercise that he showed me.  With feet unstrapped and at the finish, assume a hands away and body over position.  Then hinge back at the hips and bring your arms over your head until you feel your feet start to become unweighted.  Hold for a second, then bring hands back down and hinge back to body over.  It’s a really good way to remind myself of good hip motion and back position during a ling session.

The session itself was not at all notable, and that’s kinda the whole point. Respected a 155 cap all the way along until the last minute when I want to finish with an even 4800m for the piece.

One other note, I received a new PM5 from Concept2 as a warranty replacement for the one that was constantly throwing errors.  It worked perfectly.

Tomorrow:  I’m scared of this session.  I haven’t succeeded with it yet.

1 x 40-60’
Rest between: n/a only briefly to rehydrate
Rating/Pace: Shift every 3’ Cat III; SR 28+/7’ @ Cat VI; SR 18

I’m hoping to do this as 6 x 10′ / 1′  The Cat III is at 1:48 and the Cat VI is at 2:06.  Seems like it should be doable, but it really kicked my ass last week.
