500m intervals

Tonight was a CrossFit Endurance night.  We did 6x500m intervals with 2 minutes of rest between intervals.  So far that has to be one of my favorite rowing workouts.  The 500m distance is just about the right distance sprint for me.  Not too long, and not too short.  By the last 100m I am usually fighting to keep the pace I have set, and yet for the last 50 meters or still feel like I have enough in the tank to finsh the interval.  It is a little disheartening for me durning longer intervals when, towards the end of the interval, I feel like I am pulling as hard as I can and yet my pace keeps getting slower and slower... 1:50, 1:52, 1:55, 1:58... ugh!

It was also pretty cool tonight at the gym to have three separate groups working out at the same time,  Three of us doing an Endurance WOD, three people doing a trial workout, and another group doing the normal CrossFit WOD (which, after seeing all the burpees involved, I was glad I took a rest day this morning!)

Tomorrow should be a double-duty day: CrossFit WOD in the morning, and a 10K row in the evening.
