Rowing WOD 6/4/13:
6 x 650m w/ 2:00 Rest
- FOCUS: RACE STRATEGY
- Hold 1k Goal Split
Are you ready for the CrossFit Rowing Trainer Course at CrossFit Boston? We’ll be tearing it up on the Concept2 Ergometer at CrossFit Boston Iron and Grit this Saturday. Then we’ll take our new-found skill to the water at Community Rowing Inc. on Sunday. If you’re interested in getting in on the fun sign up here!
Our next testing day will be June 29th with a 1k, so now is the time to dial in your race strategy and build your confidence. You’ll definitely want a game plan going in. This is a Rowing WOD we did over the winter and today is a chance to test your training and see if you’re progressing. Use today’s Rowing WOD to test out your race strategy. Perform the first two pieces with a focus on consistency in stroke rating and splits. If you’re feeling solid try to go a little bit faster each consecutive piece. If you have your splits from the winter try to improve upon them and finish stronger on the last couple of pieces. Ideally your splits will be a little faster because we’re focused on the 1k instead of the 2k and there is a little more rest. Over the next two weeks we’ll be dialing in our speed with shorter intervals, so get after it today. Now is the time to see what you’ve got and push yourself.
Post your average splits for each piece to comments!
1:49.8, 1:52.5, 1:53.4, 1:55.2, 1:53.6, 1:47.3
Solid work Larry. Nice job digging deep and finishing strong. Keep it up!
