🚣 50 minutes with no rests – changing between 18 and 20spm every 10 minutes 🚣♀️
➔Pace Guide = 2K+20-24 (18spm) and 2K+18-22 (20spm)
➔Effort = 5-6/10
➔Speech = Comfortable
❗ Both stroke rates have a wide pace range. Based on your current fitness when it comes to rowing for 50 minutes non-stop, that’s how you know where you should be. If you haven’t rowed many 50 minute sessions, even at these low rates, then sit on the bottom end of the pace guide. You don’t wan to go too hard and turn this into a MID intensity workout. It should start bottom, and although the intensity will rise – because it’s 50 minutes worth of rowing after all – the bulk of this row should be a bottom tier, fitness building ‘feel’. ❗
🚥Either use Ergzone to pre-program your Concept2 monitor (search for RowAlong, and under the RA icon, pick RA67) but if you’re concerned about a delay, or you’re not rowing on a Concept2 – just set the main session as a single 50 minute row change rate and pace with me. 🚥

As always, follow me for stroke rate. And I’ll keep you company for the row with training tips, technique tips, and my usual general waffle.

ℹ – 2K training paces are based on your current best performance to row 2000m. Set your monitor to 2000m and row it as fast as you can. When you’re finished either look at the memory screen for that row, and note the Average /500m pace – or just divide your time by 4 to find that out.
For instance – if you rowed your 2000m in 8:20 – the average pace for 500m is 2:05. It doesn’t matter if you started at 1:50 and then slowed down to 2:20 by the end – your average across the whole row is 2:05.
So when I give a pace guide saying “2K + 18 seconds” – that means that you take your 2K time, and add 18 seconds to it (in the above example, 2:05 + 18 = 2:23 pace.) Just be sure to set your monitor so it displays your /500m pace so you can stay on target.
Every time you think you’re getting faster, rather than just arbitrarily changing the pace guide – do another 2000m test to find your current 2K average time – and then work from that. ℹ
