Out in the garage before 9am.
Year of the Engine – Speed/Threshold
Went 930 calories and 18.6 km. Beats my best for 30 minutes, which was 18.19 km. Wanted to average 80 RPM, but probably hovered between 77-80 most of the time.
Spent about 4 hours helping a friend move, signed online to do a little work, and then was out in the garage around 4:30.
Year of the Engine – Rocket Race
- 1:00 Row
- 1:15 Rest
Checked the drag factor on my rower, which was at 133, so I went down to 130. Tried to use more leg drive, with a 1:36-1:37 goal pace. I just don’t seem to have the leg drive I had a few years ago. I’ve definitely lost lower body strength since I haven’t been able to squat or deadlift heavy in years.
Just look at those stroke rates. I used to be able to do something like this around 25 s/m. At least my engine is better now so I’m able to keep a high pace with having to do a lot more strokes.
