Row (S??-In) 1:10:00 [3]

13 x 1 =
5 ( 1 at 30+ / 1) / 5
5 ( 1 at 32+ / 1) / 5
3 ( 1 at 28 / 1)

Another south wind lap day. 1st of each set with a start, following the shore line so turning on some, last of each set into the wind. Felt decent -- better than the last time I did these a couple of weeks ago. Pace was solid. Approx 1:50+ on the first set done at 30, nicely sub 1:50 on the set at 32+.

Lift (CoachK-21) 37:00 [3]

Row (H70-L) 1:23:00 [3]

Just kept alternating 2 at 18 2 at 20. I almost bagged it because it was kind of windy. However, I did south wind laps and it wasn't too bad.

8 AM

Row 50:00 [3] 4.22 km (11:52 / km)
ahr:155 max:171

Jumped in a DRC quad with
Pat Hamner (60+) = stroke
me = 3
John Vorhies (65+) = 2
Bob Houson (70+) = bow

List of oddnesses and significant events:
* Nice calm water that was also very stinky.
* Interesting WU of 10 (somewhat fast) +10 (fast) at arms only, arms & back, 1/4 slide extra, etc.
* Pat and Bob said a prayer before the start.
* On hard turns Pat kept his non-dominant oar feathered and sliding on the surface.
* We caught up to the two boats in front of us at the railroad bridge. Meanwhile, they were banging oars trying to fit through the same span. We had to stop, turn, then go outside.
* At Lincoln street we caught an Austin boat who instead of moving to the shore, moved out into our bow and removing out bow number. We eventually got cleared and move to the lane 1, which was free of traffic.
* After the I35 bridge we were a little too close to shore and hit too big red buoys.
* At 500m Bob yelled, "Sprint!" which was surprisingly early.
* Pat, who was already zipping back and forth at 32, shortened and took it up to 34-35. The Austin boat who was a boat length back slowly moved through us. and finished a boat length up. The DRC guys blamed it on ARCs youth not considering the fact that we were rowing much less effectively.
* Pat then zipped back to the recovery dock keeping us at a 24ish.

All and all, kind of weird rowing that I wouldn't want to do all the time. That said, I still enjoyed it. Fun to do something different with different people. And kudos to them -- they are tough old dudes! Hope I'm rowing that hard, even weird rowing, when I'm 70+.

Row 1:30:00 [3] 4.23 km (21:18 / km) +5m 21:10 / km
ahr:175 max:183

Head of the Oklahoma

Up at 0530 and drove to OKC.

2x with Pat
Steady 28.5. No issues. Decent race but not really an inspired race. Not much to get inspired about though. Just a day to row hard.

1x
Another average race. Weird though. The first 1000 was at 26-27. The second 1000 I eased a bit to 25.5-26 but my pace stayed about the same. The third 1000 I was back to 26-26.5 but my pace slowed; I didn't really notice at the time. Maybe there was some wind. Steady after I35 with a decent kick but maybe too much left. That said, I had a little stomach upset and some heaving.

I was coughing a good bit after the 2x with chest congestion so I used my inhaler before the 1x. I also had a Roctane Gu with the extra caffeine. Could that be why my HR_ave = 175 and I maxed at 184! Yowsa! Almost wonder if my HR was wacko.

An odd day all around. I don't think I'm 100%.

Some historical data
2016: 2x then 1x = 17:10 (Pat = 16:49. First open boat = 15:48)
2015: 2x then 1x = 18:06 (Pat = 17:42. First open boat = 15:52).
2014: 2x then 1x = 16:34 (Pat = 16:20). Strong tailwind
2013: skipped
2012: 2x then 1x= 17:32 (Pat= 17:11). Headwind.
2011: No 2x. 1x = 16:58 (Pat = 16:51) 65s behind the fastest in open.
2010: No 2x. 16:24.2 70s behind the overall fastest in open.
2009: No 2x. 16:35.6
