Run 1:20:00 [3]

w/ Karl from Norbuk and then around. We weren't moving very fast, and I didn't want to go faster, but I wasn't stressing and time went by quick enough.

Row 1:00:00 [3]

A: 2/3 + 2/4 + 1/8 + 1/3 + 2
SR: 30 / 32 / 34 / 38 / 30
HR: Maxes at 175ish

Workout was supposed to be 2/2+2/2+2/4+1. However, a strong south wind meant I had to do laps, ie, do the two minutes then row back to where I started, then repeat. Going back on the rest takes longer. I didn't want to just rest in place and do an interval in the opposite direction because then I beat beating into the wind, whish is why I ended up with the 3 and 4 minute rests. Why the 8 min rest? The piece at 34 spm was supposed to be 2 min and I was rowing along well when my port oar hit a wave, skied, and then I didn't get it square in time for the drive... whiff, splash. Effectively an ejection crab sculling style. I got back in the boat but then I had to bail with my shamwow and that took a little time. Finally, I got going again, did the piece at 38, then because I felt cheated by spilling on the 34 spm piece I did another 2 min at 30.

Other than the crab I was very happy with how this went. The pieces at 30 and 32 felt relatively comfortable. I nailed the piece at 38, actually I was bouncing between 37 and 38, at a pace near 1:40. I don't think I've rowed the 1x at that rate for that long before. Overall, particularly given how I've felt of late, I am happy I could put down strong strokes.

I was rowing back and forth behind the dam and there were a lot of people running a biking and many waving and saying "Hiiiii!!" Very friendly day at the lake.

Run 40:00 [3]

Right after row. Luckily there was some cloud cover.

Core 10:00 [3]

Right after run. Did burpies, jumpies, pushups, crunches, planks and oblique planks out on the dock. After that and all of the above I drank a few gallons of liquid.

Row 1:18:00 [3]

D: 3[(8+8)/4]
SR: 20/22
HR: 138 - 148
Got out just as the thunderstorms cleared and had nice water and relatively low temps (71). Power through the workout with good speed and technique, and my HR stayed reasonable. I wish I felt fresher though.
