Row Recovery (No Measure)

Focusing on finding paces today, building awareness of speeds. We’ll be moving through 4 rounds of varying speeds, for a total consecutive row of 2,400 meters.

2,400 Meter Row

Meters 0-200 – 2K Pace + 15 Seconds

Meters 201-400 – 2K Pace + 10 Seconds

Meters 401-600 – 2K Pace + 5 Seconds
Not for score, and rather for recovery and pacing practice.

Let’s take an athlete who has a current/estimated 2K row time as 7:00 flat. Their average /500m pace for that effort would be 1:45. So for today’s workout, they would complete:

Meters 0-200 – 2:00 / 500m pace

Meters 201-400 – 1:55 / 500m pace

Meters 401-600 – 1:50 / 500m pace

After completing the last 200 meter portion above, we roll directly back to the first pace. Repeating this for a total of (4) iterations, we have our 2,400 meter row.
