#Paddling workout of the week is called Mixed Pace Repeats. Designed for late base phase training, this workout let's you ease into speedwork and play with different "gears" as you paddle. There's a bit of self-coaching involved here, as you get to decide how much speed you will add to each repeat. We say go faster on each, you decide how much faster.
This workout works great for #OC1, #OC2, #OC6, #SUP, #dragonboat and #surfski, by the way.
TIP: Don't be surprised if you find you're actually faster when you're not going "all out". Sometimes when we go all out, we lose form, and the speed vs. energy expenditure tradeoff isn't worth the effort. Pay attention to your effort levels and see where you're feeling most efficient during this workout.
