Taking Charlie's advice, I ran this morning instead of rowed. All the way down to the Loop for the Chicago Women's March. Joined in for a few blocks. Huge crowd, moving very slowly. Finally had to break away and look for an L train to take me home. Sun was very warm, so lots of radiant heat reflecting off the wet pavement, but still cool and windy, so conductive and evaporative losses more then compensated for the sun. High for this January day was in the 60's! Wore the Allendale hat sent to me by Soupbone's wife...with a stick to perk up those pussy
Very strong feeling of community, intelligence, and shared ideals. Lots of very creative signs and slogans. This is Barack and Hillary's home town after all. Mr T is going to have a tough time selling Chicago on his programs.
Erg rowing 25:22  5.0 km (5:04 / km)
Didn't get to bed til after midnight. And not in good shape...out in the suburbs at a 'beer dinner' with some of my old triathlon buddies. So I took it very easy this morning...would this slow pace qualify as 'recovery?'
But a great time with good friends and lots of memories. The only clinker: they were all DJT voters, and looking forward to today. Fortunately we didn't spend much time discussing politics. But just shows that even in deep blue Illinois, we're still surrounded by people with much different ideas and philosophies.
Erg rowing 24:37  5.0 km (4:55 / km)
Went for a 2000m PR, but fell short of last month's 8:42 by 10 seconds. Splits were poor:

First golf of 2017! Cool and gray. Only count half my actual time on the course, since I'm standing around the other half of the time. Actual elapsed time for round today: 2:10.
Rode bike over to golf course along Lake and played nine holes. Pretty exhausted by the time I got home, what with the rowing early this morning. But a surprisingly good round, despite the flooded bunkers, patches of ice and snow, and very soft fairways. All things considered, a good day.
Erg rowing 28:57  6.0 km (4:50 / km)
Long, slow distance following yesterday's repeats. Just a couple 20-stroke 'pick-ups.' Generally no energy. Gonna try 9-holes of golk this morning. Pretty wet out, but it is going to be warm & sunny with light winds.
Erg rowing 26:01  5.4 km (4:49 / km)
Another 'Charlie' workout: 8x500m with 60 seconds rest between each piece. A pre-programmed workout on the rower's computer. So very easy to execute. Pacing on each of the eight pieces:
Started too fast. So had to do a 'reset' on the fourth piece. But a minute rest between each is just not enough for me at this point. Perhaps I'll get better.
