Surprising Row PRs

I did housecleaning all morning and took a break around 2pm.

Warm-up

5:00 Airdyne (103 cals, 2.55 km)

Time Trials

My BTWB rowing speed scores are way off due to intervals counting, which throws off my fitness level, so I’m going to do some rowing tests this week.

Row

  • 100m – 15.1
  • 100m – 15.2
  • 1,000m – 3:09.9

That’s a PR for 100m by 0.4 seconds (back in Dec 2015)!! I used 7.5 on the damper first and then maxed it out to 10 on the second try. Reset it back to 5 for the longer row. I looked up my old 1k time, which was 3:11.2 from March 2015. So I set a goal to hold 1:35 as long as possible. Felt good at 500 meters and then it started to hit me with about 300 to go. Was able to hold on for a 1.3 second PR. I really didn’t expect a PR from either row. I’d say all of the single leg work is paying off since I haven’t done much rowing all year.

Really good splits for the 1k!! I was fucking wrecked after that and rested about a half hour!! Can you say Fran Lung?

Conditioning

4 Rounds

  • 25 T2B
  • 700m Run (around block)

The original version had 25 burpee and 20 toes to bars each round, but I adjusted after the rowing. Went for larger sets and surprised myself by being able to do 9-9-7 every round. First three runs were pretty chill and I picked up the pace on  the final one. Finished in 23:36.

Then I had a really late lunch and finished housecleaning.
