An even faster 60mins

Posted by thepeteplan on November 17, 2008

I hate days like today. I decided to set 60mins on the clock rather than do a “just row” and aim to beat the 1:47.8 average from Saturday. So I set off just under that for the first 10mins, then gradually negative split up to 20mins to go. For some reason then, with 20mins still on the clock, something in my head said the finish line was in sight, and I kept speeding up. Then with 10mins to go I put the hammer down…

60mins = 16955m / 1:46.1 / 28
10mins splits:
1:47.7 / 27
1:47.1 / 27
1:46.8 / 28
1:46.4 / 28
1:45.6 / 29
1:43.3 / 30

So why do I hate days like this? Two reasons – even though it’s pretty cold I won’t stop sweating now for 2 hours, and because I pushed so hard I have about a 75% chance of feeling crap later (headache, sneezing etc). Oh well, it was a good row.

And Paul who replied to yesterday’s entry – I know a few people who went to UPS, including one rower.
