Im still a bit beat down from the last 3 days of wod and felt that my foot and forearm needed a day off. That said I am on the road in Miami this week so I wanted to get a wod in in case things go nuts on the road. So went to the regular fall back plan of the 2k row. I believe the last time was Jan 14th. I remember I was a bit tired but did a pretty good row. Anthony sub 7 and just finishing the book -The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics
has me a bit fixated on rowing.
2k row for time. My strategy was to not go out too hard, try to pace the thing as best I can and then turn it on. Plan went well until the 3rd 500. It seems that at 1200 meters things always go to hell. Once I hit the 500m to go I amped it up till the end.
Didnt break 7min in fact I would have been fine with 7 min flat. Still a long way to go. Went back and looked at my January score and it was scary how close the TT was.
Jan 8 - 2014 - 7:09.7
April 8 2014 - 7:09.4
I started slower this time around and then even slower the 2nd 500. The third 500 was almost exactly the same 1:51.4 to 1:51.7 The big difference is a really poured it on in the last 500 gaining back 6 seconds. Hmmm where to find 9 seconds. That is a big ask. I can see at least 2-3 in the 3rd 500.
Will try again soon.
On the road or in this case the runway.
