Rowing 8:36 [5] 2.0 km (4:18 / km)

2K PR - 8:36.7 - 2:09.1 avg per 500m
Analysis for myself so I know what to improve on:

My start was fine, I shifted to my base rate really quick since I didn’t want to burn out at the start. I think for our next 2k I will try having a faster start and see if that helps bring my total time down. There were some points, however, in the first 750m where I felt like I couldnt hold onto the split I wanted but then it felt more attainable towards the end. This could be a mentality thing where I need to mentally push myself at the beginning and tell myself that I CAN go faster and I CAN have a faster start and not collapse because of it.

The sprint was really fast compared to the rest of the piece (avg 7 splits better, got to 13 splits better for last 100m). This means I need to push more in the middle of the piece so I don’t have much left in me to sprint at the end. I think my sprint needs to be something where I literally have nothing left but I need to break through barriers to keep going for the last 300m. Something positive about the sprint was that I started bringing my split down a bit earlier on compared to past 2ks. I want to continue doing this. Overall, the 2k went by really fast which was nice!
A PR is a PR, however I believe with the faster start I could have gotten a 2:08 split and I believe I had it in me to do so today, but I know this for next time.

Rowing 30:00 [3]

Warmup and cooldown
10 min steady state to start
Did some builders up to rate
1 minute at goal pace
10 minute cooldown

Running 35:33 [3] 3.95 mi (9:00 / mi) +100ft 8:47 / mi

Was supposed to be a jog but I really want to beat Green Lake (our top competitors) so I didn’t take this as an easy run. My body felt like collapsing though since we had just done our 2k but I ran with some people which helped me push through.

Sunday Apr 14 #

Rowing 2:19:56 [5] 15.34 km (9:07 / km)

Rose City Invite
Combined warmups and races of both of my events

Novice A - 2 Seat - 7:53.41 2nd place. We beat a boat by one second! This race generally felt good so I was really happy.

3V B Boat - Stroke Seat - 8:20.83. This lineup had never practiced together until today and probably will not practice together again because it was a group of people with a lot of different experience and strength. This lineup was more for those who didn’t have a race yet. We lacked consistent press in this race and since I came straight from the previous race I was pretty tired.
