    6x 9:00/2:00 rest

    4min @ 22 s/m
    3min @ 20 s/m
    2 min @ 18 s/m

    The focus for today was body positioning during the recovery

    Can't tell you how heart warming it is to see a nice, sensible, normal rowing workout here, instead of pretty much "30 minutes all out, damper on 10, monitor on calories" (the latter usually at some split the writer could beat pretty readily if they knew how to do workouts like the one you posted, with decent coaching). I maybe exaggerate, but only a little. ;)

    Apologies for the digression from the thread.

    I will always welcome your digressions into rowing - always :)

    And no, you don't exaggerate - see people at the gym. I do calculate the calories I burned via the calculator on Concept2's website, but I never look at it while I'm on the erg and I care more about technique and pace more than anything.
    You will be even more pleased to know that I warmed up for 5 or 10 min with the damper at 1 and did the rest of it with the damper at 3 or 4. I also apparently did well in terms of body positioning. The coach had a notebook with everyone's name/initials on it and put notes for the first 4 intervals (a checkmark-100%, 1/5-50%, or 0). I got 4 checks, as did probably most people (I only scanned down the list so I could make sure that the checks were in fact a good thing).

    The last 2 min were full pressure and I managed to be able to really focus on suspension during the last two minutes of the second, third, and 4th intervals especially. By the 6th one I could intellectually tell my body to push harder but it really wasn't happening.

    After several challenging days of lifting and running I’m taking it easy on my body and will be hitting the pool after work. Probably about 2500 yards, maybe 3000 if I’m feeling perky. They’re letting us out of the office at 2pm for thanksgiving so I can still get in a good swim while it’s nice outside (ps I love living in San Diego because I can swim outside and then lay out in the sun even in late November).

    Rowing machine 4 x (2K on, 2' off) in two sessions = about 38' actual rowing not counting CD, trying to get it in efficiently while getting ready for Thanksgiving dinner/drive. Various tech focuses during pieces (heels down first, quick arms, . . . and a certain amount of "just get it done, already". Must be Holiday Challenge season, eh? ;) ).

    An hour of interval training on an indoor bike trainer - I'm missing being able to ride outdoors. :(
