Notes: Today I stressed to some training partners the importance of controlling intensity. That you should be able to pick your finish time within a very specific limit based on what you know about your own inefficiencies. It is simple really reps/min of x for this long (y), Adjust for transitions and fatigue. I said a good pace would be between 8-8:30 for a "training" stimulus, I got that from knowing a 3:30/1000m row would leave me fresh and that I could hold 20reps/min of those 2 movements for up to 10min 3:30+ transitions and 4:30 =8min(ish). The transitions were faster than I expected and closer, I came in under that. This however is better than telling yourself you can do it in 9, imploding and finishing in the high tens. I was not "racing" I was never panicked, I made a strategy, knew what would feel the worst and contended with that before it happened.
