Rowing (Erg) 50:00 
2*25mins on sliders.
To begin with we were all a bit out out but once we got into a rhythmn it was really good and together!
Backstops build, front stops build, rate triangle and 1min on/1min off.
Need to work on keeping back still at the catch.
Knee didn't bother me at all, that was without painkillers too.
Knee felt really good this morning and thought it was maybe fixed-was hurting a bit later on but significantly better than it has been doing. Almost no limping now!
Made it into W1!! (First college boat). Pretty full on rowing now but it will be mainly in the mornings so running will still fit in absolutely fine when I can finally run :)
Knee has been lost totally fine the past week and a half rowing but every time took ibuprofen before the outing/erg so not sure if it was due to that or because it actual isn't aggravated by it.
Physio today said it sounded like the bursa under the knee being a bit inflamed (but was quite surprised it still hadn't settled down). Got to try rowing without ibuprofen and see if there is any pain.
Sometimes it's totally fine othertimes I can't walk or cycle pain free.
Rowing warm up/down (Erg) 10:00 
Rowing race (Erg) 7:52 
2k test. 7.52.3
Was so scared/nervous before as it dictates which boat you will get into for next term and wanted to prove I was half decent! Once going nerves settled and didn't actually feel too dead by the end-power was a struggle at the end but kept rate high-aim is sub 7.50 in near future. The next best ex novices got 8.25.
Rowing 2:00:00 
Harder session today. More experienced crew so less faffing and boat much more sat which helped.
Drills up and down the reach then to lock and back working on increasing rate by 2 every minute.
No coaching points as no bank party for majority.
Rowing (Erg) 10:00 
1250m test in prep for 2k. 4.50.9, 1.56.8/500m.
Went off at what I thought was too fat at 1.56 but managed to hold it quite well but defo wouldnt manage a whole 2k like that.
Rowing 1:30:00 
Sliders dodgy so messed up my rowing a bit-quite a few coaching points given but not sure if they would have been a problem had sliders been ok.
Points: moving before catching, leaning too much at catch for extra distance and leaning too far back on stroke-pretty sure first 2 were to do with dodgy slide.
Rowing 1:00:00 
Worst outing of the week by a fair way-boat so unsat and didn't really get any better throughout. Tried to keep technique solid but it was a bit impossible.
Fliss picked up on my dodgy slide too-need to power all the way not just at the front.
