A PB is better than nothing

Posted on: Monday September 27, 2010

I feel like I’ve been fighting something off lately. A combination of high churn work during the day, a race to get the new Baum site up by night and general life bizniss has got me surfing on the edge. So when I decided to go up to keep Pete and Sam company, it was with the intention of rowing a quick 500 and the good ol’ six minute DB C&J.


Skip ~5min


Row 500m = 1:35.2 PB (1:35.7)
Row 500m = 1:45.7

6:00 DB C&J (one arm, long cycle), change hands every 5 @ 20kg DB


500m PR was a bit of a surprise given intentions and conditions. During the second effort I tried to push of my toes more, to shove my feet ‘up’ the pads more, as I’d had with trouble coming off the slide during the first 500. The new method only made things worse. Not sure what to do about that … maybe focus on quad extension? No idea.

DB C&J was harder than it should have been. I had to set the bell down twice and wasn’t setting any kind of blistering pace. No biggie.
