As I am still nursing a healing calf muscle, I laid off the running again today. While I am not running, it is crucial to get some LSD (long slow distance) to increase my overall volume in preparation for Selection. I know that I should be running 10-12 miles today, but if I dont let this calf heal properly, it will be a nagging, frustrating injury that will prevent proper training and probably resurface in Selection.
Believe me, I would rather run 10 miles than do a 15,000 meter row.
At any rate, I gave the guys a choice today and Trevor, Clay and I chose the full 15,000 while Robert and Blythe also stayed back for a long row. Keith, Jay, Will, Justin and Turner ran and the 7.12 mile, 4 bridges course was completed within 1-2 minutes of the 15,000 m row. Interesting.
I rowed 15,000 meters in 1:03:00 and Trevor came in at 1:00:17, Clay 1:06:00. For me, I had a goal of keeping my splits under 2:10 for the entire row. I saw 2:11 a couple of times as I lost concentration but was able to bring it back down. Mostly I was around 2:02 but my overall average split was 2:05.6. I am sure that I could improve on my technique alot.
Sweat index on this one was a 9.7 and I was completely soaked.
