Row 10,000M (41:41.9, a 2:05.1/500M split, 6000M in 24:40)
10 Minutes of recumbent bicycle (2.69 mi)
I writing this about 5 hours after the actual session. I'm exhausted and falling asleep on the couch. Shedding 5 seconds per 500M for 20 pieces is a little daunting to get to 10K in 40:00 flat. I think if I didn't have a herniated disc and could push off my left calf I could probably do it pretty easily, actually.
Per the extremely humbling rankings at Concept2, for a Heavyweight in the 30 - 39 age range, a time of 40:01.6 would put me at the 50th Percentile. F**K me. The best time in 2010 was 35 flat which is a 1:45 split. I just blacked out. On an endurance piece the weakness in the calf probably wouldn't cause as much a swing in my relative ranking as in the 1000M or 500M where I think healed I can "sniff" the 90th percentile.
