Here are sample land pratices:
ERG: 1: 4×10′ at 28 SR at high intensity, 90-95% of maximum heart rate (talking is almost impossible), 5′ rest if enough ergs. If not, 10′ rest with 5′ of core, 1′ each of these:
2: 5×9′ at 72-80% maximum heart rate (you can say about two words before gasping for a breathe) with 3′ rest if enough ergs. If not, take a 10′ rest with 9′ of core. 3′ at 18 SR, 3′ at 20 SR, 3′ at 18 SR
