Re: The Pete Plan

End of cycle #6 Friday night with the waterfall and a target pace of 1:53.3: F2AEDB3F-AA7D-44C5-A893-81E4769B6EB6.jpeg This felt like the hardest session since I started my PP training. Especially in the first rep I thought about handling down on more than one occasion. It got better in the second o...

Re: The Pete Plan

It was time for the 4x2k session again last night, with a target pace of 1:53.3: Unbenannt.JPG The session looks controlled and easy, but it wasn't! The first rep felt heavy, so I tried to row the other reps as evenly paced as possible to save some energy for a final fast rep. I'm pleased to have fi...

Re: The Pete Plan

Started cycle #6 last night with another 5x1500 session. Target pace from last time was 1:53.3: Unbenannt.JPG This one felt tough but still controlled in the first four reps and I had something left for quick last rep. Now I'm almost where when I left the PP training for the christmas break (1:54.2)...

End of the fith cycle of my current PP training tonight with the waterfall session. Target pace from last week was 1:54.3: 22402F33-16DF-406B-BAA9-D63CCEC390C4.jpeg This one was pretty hard and for the first time I had to slow done in a rep.

Re: The Pete Plan

Time for the 4x2k session yesterday with a target pace of 1:54.2: Unbenannt.JPG Really pleased with this one as it was exactly as quick as the 5x1500 session from Monday (which is supposed to be 0.5 seconds quicker in pace). I'm now back pace wise where I left before the christmas break. It's anothe...

Re: The Pete Plan

My PP rhythm of Monday: 5x1500, Wednesday: 4x2k, Friday: waterfall had been compromised lately by the trainingbreak over christmas. So my latest „Friday session“ had been yesterday on a Sunday. To get back into my regular PP schedule I had to do the Monday session today, so two session back to back....

Re: The Pete Plan

Second PP session after christmas break today with the waterfall session. Target pace fom last time was 1:53.7 but like with the 4x2k three days ago I decided to add two seconds for a revised target pace of 1:55.7, hopefully compensating the two weeks off the plan. This is how it went: EB3D657E-5577...

Re: The Pete Plan

Thanks Steve, I did enjoy the christmas break, but today it was time to get back to the plan. As I‘ve been off the pete plan for almost two weeks I added two seconds to today‘s target pace of 1:53.4 for the 4x2k session. This is how it went: 569CBA44-92A4-45E1-89CD-02421C084DA2.jpeg Quite happy with...

Re: December ctc - 7 x 1 minute / 70“r

Had a last minute attempt at this as I was hughly disappointed with my first go (1971m / 1:46.5). My aim this time was to simply beat last time‘s pace in each rep.

Very strong row there Max, PB or not! At least you‘re within striking distance to your PB, whereas I am, well, that‘s a different story... Had a last minute go tonight after two embarrassing attempts with 19:53.7 and 19:20.4 and I was hoping to get as close to the 19 minute barrier as possible. This...
