Today's rowing workout from Mr. Computer: Strength/endurance
500m w/u. 750m c/d.
12,000m with 9x500m at a low stroke rate (18-22spm), high intensity (114-140 heart rate). 750m recovery (23-25spm, 105-131 heart rate) between sets.
Let's face it. Getting up every morning at 4:30am so you can sit on a rowing machine in your attic and row till you almost puke isn't exactly something that makes you jump out of bed with excitement each day. I don't listen to music when running, but for indoor rowing, music has been a Godsend. Once you get the basic technique down, ergometer rowing doesn't require a whole lot of concentration, other than making sure you keep within the stroke rate and heart rate parameters for the particular workout. It's a perfect time to zone out with your favorite music, which makes the whole process more bearable. I try not to go too crazy with buying tech stuff, but did invest in a nice pair of wireless bluetooth earbuds for rowing, and a day rarely goes by that I don't use them. Well today, just a few minutes into the row, I started getting the low battery beep from the earbuds. Now that my rowing sessions have gotten longer, I need to charge them more frequently, and I guess I went too long between charges. So after just 5 minutes into a 50 minute row, I was without my music.
Man, I dig those rhythm & blues
I was a lonely, teenage broncin' buck
With a pink carnation and a pickup truck
But I knew I was out of luck
The day the music died
But somehow I survived.
