The new plan is being executed. Uh, not “bang bang” executed, but hard work executed. You get my drift. One thing for sure – all this workout has sure left me tired! I was in bed last night by 9PM!!!! Back up at 6AM. And I’m still physically tired.
Here’s all it took to drive me into the depths of fatigue:
- Monday: Up on the ergometer. 5 minute warm up, 20 sets of 1 minute on, 30 seconds off (stroke rate progression of 24 spm (5 sets), 28 spm (5 sets), 22 spm (5 sets), 30 spm (5 sets)). 5 minute warm down. Total distance rowed – 7750 meters (4.8 miles). I followed this by a resistance training routine.
- Tuesday: Intervals with Cal Coast. 1.25 mile warm up. Intervals of 1X1200 (5:53), 1X800 (3:55), 2X400 (1:58, 1:48). 1.75 mile warm down. Total distance – 5.1 miles.
I made it home, had dinner and settled in to watch the Lakers and Dodgers on TV (this time of year is wonderful for a sports nut – even the NHL is on!). A few minutes later (at least it seemed a few minutes later) I noticed a big wet spot on my t-shirt’s left shoulder. Drool! I know when I’m beat – so it was off to bed. Yeah – getting old sucks.
Actually – I can’t tell you how nice it is to be physically exhausted because I should be!
