Thursday on the water in an 8……. need to keep up with this blog……
Friday boat loading
Saturday, up at 5:30 to head to the Manawatu for the day. Row, BBQ breakfast, more rowing – amazing, lovely flat water and lots of time to work on technique – loved it. Somehow managed to burn the back of my legs though……
Sunday – weights and watts – really enjoyed it – not done weights for ages and really pushed myself with the arm work. Not worked out the watts on the ergs yet – managed 308 need to be closer to 400…….
