Three distinct yet convergent methods to achieving a 2k row at your desired pace. While all the methods do work, the interesting part is deciding how to attack this goal without spending too much time for this specific goal and in turn, spending less time on other areas of fitness.
- The Glassman Method
- The Hinshaw Method
- My own Ferrara Method The Glassman Method (You can do this one as the below picture shows or just hold your desired 500m pace that will allow you to get your 2k goal). Below picture is for a 7 minute 2k (1:45/500m pace).
The Hinshaw Method (This is all based on a 1:40 pace per 500m and a 6:40 2K time) To change the pacing takes some math and a separate spreadsheet which I have that you can message me if you need more details.
The Ferrara Method (This way I think works best for me as I’m gradually getting myself used to that pace over a longer period of time.)
Everyone is different so have fun experimenting to see which way works best for you. I will be experimenting with my own method once a week starting next week and will log the results on here. My goal is a 6:40 2K. Happy Training! -Anthony Ferrara
