That is quite a formidable piece. I was struggling to hold it together for 5K yesterday. An hour is quite an undertaking. All those daily sessions have made you strong.
Yes, you put up a very respectable piece yesterday. Congratulations on completing such a long row! Wish I had your discipline to maintain a respectable pace throughout the piece. Well done!
Very impressive again that you could come back the next day and do another 5K. I think the pickups will prove fruitful. When you come to wanting to race, or to approach a PR, I think you will do better if you take 2 or 3 or even 4 days completely off before. I find it remarkable how much sparkier I am on the rower after a short layoff.
Well it is not without a bit of pain, getting those creaky joints and ligaments moving each morning. But your impressive come-back pieces have me motivated. Hope you keep it up.
