1) As usual, if you can't come, please 'reply all' so someone else can nab your seat.
2) Videos from last week have been circulated!
3) This week's sessions....
Wednesday: Will be 3 x 12 minutes on 2 minutes rest, rate 20, intensity increasing slightly for each piece.
The idea here is that we are continuing to build the total work (36 minutes), but reducing the rests slightly, and then also working on increasing the intensity and lowering the split by increasing the drive rather than upping the rate - fitting into the idea of using this time of year for 'distance per stroke'.
Suggested second session: A long boring, mental-fitness one - a 30 minute piece. But to make it slightly more palatable, put some rate changes in - do it as 6 minute blocks at 18/20/22/20/18. Thus it ends up similar to the 33 minute pyramid we did last week, but slightly less fun (and therefore more mentally taxing!).
