This blog is being devoted to log my trials & tribulations whilst undertaking my new passion of Ergo Indoor Rowing. The blog will act as an on-line digital rowing logbook and to record my rowing training, dedication, motivation and hopefully setting new Personal Bests (PBs). You can also find me on Twitter, as @observerrow, and I welcome more followers everywhere I am.

PPTG Rest Day

PPTG Week 7 REST day as I have a 10k We-Row Web-Race tomorrow and my radial nerve is still sore. Next week is the final PPTG of a 8 week period which covered 3 x Core Sessions & 3 x Steady-Distance weekly sessions. Commencing from 18 Jul there will be a change in emphasis of the training where I will be joining the Sprint Training Group.

The Sprint Training Group as a focus distance will be aiming towards 1k pieces, but will also fit in a fast 500m TT towards the end of the 8 weeks too, as the training will be beneficial for that. The majority of the core sessions will be faster than 2k pace. They will be intense, and it will be tough for the first few weeks. However big changes in training emphasis brings about big adaption gains potentially. Looking forward to this group so that I can focus and improve my sprint distances especially power/torque and be able to pull consistently sub 1:39 pace for 500m - 2000m pieces!
