Rowing WOD 6/8/13:
10 x 1:00 On, 1:00 Off
- 1k Goal Pace!!!
Three Weeks until our next 1k! Today is the day to commit to a goal and dial in your splits. Those with experience know the benefit of pacing, gaming, and executing a plan to produce a personal best performance. In the end a game plan facilitates mental toughness and focus to deal with pain when things get tough.
Today’s focus is executing your goal 1k race plan at high intensity. Set the monitor for intervals distance with 1 minute of Work and 1 minute of Rest. Row the first two pieces as if they were the start of the 1k. Row the next three pieces as if they were part of the second 250m, Row the next three pieces as if they were part of the third 250m, and finish the last two pieces with a sprint like the end of a race.
This should not be an all out Max Effort, but rather a calculated effort at a split close to your goal split. The goal should be to pull the lowest split possible, consistently through all 10 intervals. If you have a good start and settle in the first two pieces and a solid sprint for the last two pieces then you’re average split for all 10 pieces should be that goal split you’d like to hit on the 1k.
Post your Splits and Distances for each piece to comments.
