Race WU

2.5 (250m / 250m)

Beautiful evening to row. The first half were at 27-29. I actually got stronger as I went along and the second half was at 28-29. There were lots of juniors out with their ding-a-ling coaches. Thus, I thought I'd go back and forth on the buoy line and stay out of their way. But on a couple of the last pieces the coaches parked themselves and their rowers right on the route causing me to have to stop. A little annoying but not the end of the word. What is more annoying is that the two coaches in question would be the first to flip their lids if anyone got in their way.

All that aside, it was probably my best rowing performance of the fall. We were going to hold a little race on Sunday morning but the wind is not behaving. And now it is time for more skiing. Alas, this is probably my peak for the 2020 season.

Around the lake + Fisher Rd loop. My butt is tired from yoga. All the traffic that has been detour onto Fisher the last year has really degraded the asphalt.

Completely different subject... It's hard to top the scenery during the Tour de France but the views they are showing around the Pyrennees for the Veulta is doing it for me. I might just have to visit Spain.

Bike 1:05:00 [3]

Tipped the Bianchi's seat about 2deg forward and drop the stack about 1cm. Reach feels comfortable but I can tell there is a little more wight on my hands. I think I might lift the seat back up a touch.

Riding in the mist. I couldn't feel any drops but I was wet by the time I got home. Pleasant.

Row 1:02:03 [3] 11.61 km (5:21 / km)
ahr:122 max:150

Nice and easy. I didn't turn on my Speedcoach so that I wouldn't fixate on strokerate or pace.

Farmersville Trick it Up

45F and cloudy at the start, 55 and sunny at the finish. I dress perfectly. I was a little cold at the start, at little hot at the finish. Brynje shirts are amazing.

I start out trying to be zippy but my legs were actually a bit sore. Not sure why. I dropped off the front group at about 10k. Later I hooked up with John from Sulfur Springs and we were together the rest of the ride. At times we had a few others with us. On the whole I did probably 70% of the pulling. Sore legs the whole way though -- weird.

At the Onion Shed pavilion we got BBQ and a pretty good band was planning. I went back for a sausage

Nice day.

Things I forgot:
* Jacket for after the ride.
* Blinky lights
* TP+mask baggy
* Chamois Buttr
* Extra car key
I wasn't planning a hard effort and so my brain turned off.
