Rowing WOD 3/12/13:
5 x 800m w/ 2min Rest
1st @2k Pace (w/ Start)
Some of our best results are found when training at high intensity. In order to develop as an athlete you’ll need to develop an ability to go hard and bring your “A” game. Today’s Rowing WOD provides an opportunity for just that. Set the monitor for 800m of work and 2 minutes of rest. Use the first piece to practice the start of your 2k and the last to practice the finish. There should be a focus on power per stroke and solid intensity across all five pieces. Write down the splits you would like to hold (ex: 2:00, 2:03, 2:02, 2:01, 2:00) prior to starting and make a commitment to attack each piece and execute every stroke. Know what mental cues you will go to when it gets tough – breath, legs down, sit tall, swing, smooth, breath…
13.2 will be announced in a couple of days! Will it be a 2k? Better get ready just in case. For those of you fighting to break that 8min or 7min mark today is a day to get after it. Try to pick a slightly faster split then you rowed on Saturday.
