Racing Tactics

Racing is all about lasting the distance. If you search the literature, the 2km race is described as ~80% aerobic and ~20% anaerobic, so this gives you some idea where your training energies need to be focussed. This also explains why most rowing programmes centre on aerobic adaptations from long, slow, steady state or shorter, harder intensity interval type sessions - the two classical approaches to increasing aerobic capacity.
