Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Monday morning and feeling well rested but tired.


Plan – AAB calories = for time (but there is a long way there first) and a lot of fun.



Warm up
Clean 2 rowers and then row and test what was to come.
I would say we spent 10min on this.



AAB – on our way there
So the first part of the day was to Row as close as possible to 100, 200, 300, 400 & 500 meters.
For every meter under = x1, for every meter over = x2.

Here the difference: change the screen so that is shows the total time at the top, estimated time/500m, meter counter in the middle and strokes in the bottom let hand corner. Place a piece of tape over the meters. So now you can only use what you see to reach your goal.

So now it is game on…. How close can you get?

Wife = Row
100m – result = 102m = 4
200m – result = 192m = 8
300m – result = 302m = 4
400m – result = 391m = 9
500m – result = 494m = 6

Total = 31


Myself = Row
100m – result = 101m = 2
200m – result = 202m = 4
300m – result = 312m = 24
400m – result = 412m = 24
500m – result = 511m = 22

Total = 76


Exactly the same thing again but now with the Ski-erg


Wife = Ski
100m – result = 101m = 2
200m – result = 192m = 8
300m – result = 272m = 28
400m – result = 380m = 20
500m – result = 494m = 6

Total = 64


Myself = Ski
100m – result = 192m = 8
200m – result = 201m = 1
300m – result = 293m = 7
400m – result = 389m = 11
500m – result = 496m = 4

Total = 32

After all that we now know how much we have to do on the Air bike… and boy were we close to each other. I came out worse off, that’s for sure.



AAB calories for time:
Wife = 31+64 = 95 calories
Myself = 76+32 = 108 calories


Times are in:
Wife – 12.04
Myself – 7.56

Where we were going to hit the AAB there was only 1 free so I told the wife to start and once a second bike becomes free. It felt as if I was waiting for ages and as soon as a bike was free I jumped on. The wife had already burned off around 35 calories. I could see her speed was a constant 50 RPM’s so I was thinking she is going to finish way before me. I jumped on and kept the bike between 61 and 63 RPM’s the whole time, I started to catch her up and I was getting closer and closer, she finished 1 second before I did, I must have been 0.3 calories short of catching her…. It was a lot of fun to do this today.



Cool down
General stretch for 20min
