Saturday: Half Marathon (21097 m) 1:36:45.8 (almost 2 minute improvement from first Half Marathon back at beginning of Sept).

I used the ReRow feature from that piece and used the Paceboat function focusing on pace and not Projected Finish time. I also just recently purchased a Xeno Mueller Techniques DVD and it is making a difference in the way I feel on the erg. The first time I did the Half I basically bonked bad in the last 5000 m but with improved technique and focus on pace I got off the erg feeling great after Saturday's row.

Sunday: 10000m 43:09.5
(without trying improved my best time in this distance by 2 seconds again because I was focused on pace and using better technique). Used a REROW of a 48 minute moderate effort 10k and used the pace boat.

Again I felt great even though I had hard effort on Sunday. With cool down and warm up both days I did a total 35000m's for the weekend and I am stoked. Today will be another 10000 tonight but at an easy pace.

Hey, this rowing stuff's addictive...anyone tell you guys that? ha ha

5 minutes rest

Have a 2k test on Wednesday ( I know it is idioitic to do a sprint test in the fall but the coach feels it is important for colleges to have recent erg scores). Any ideas on some race prep I could do tomorrow? I'm shooting to hold a 1:48 for the first 1k, then negative split the second half (I haven't done any speedwork so I have no expectation of a PB ).

From all that I have heard, the college coaches are much more interested in your 6k times than the 2k. They do want both, but it seems that the 6k time is much better at predicting your success at college level rowing.

I know the coaches are interested in the 6k, but that doesn't prevent my high school coach from being stubborn :-/

Any ideas though for what I can do today?

I did a pre-2k acclimation this morning piece, just to get used to the pressure and rate.

3 x 300m w/ 1:20r

3:11.7 900m 1:46.5 @ 27

Then on to the good stuff..

2000m 1:46.1 7:04.4 @ 28

Splits went something like

333m 1:47.8 @ 27
666m 1:47.9 @ 27
999m 1:47.5 @ 27
1332m 1:46.6 @ 27
1665m 1:45.8 @ 28
1998m 1:41.0 @ 30
2000m 1:40.0 @ 30

The piece went right to plan, controlled negative splitting. It felt really easy through most of it, until the last 200m or so. When I finished, I felt great, and then when I tried to cool down, I had trouble getting the split below 4:00.. heh. I feel that this score shows that my base building is really paying off (getting close to my PB without any speed work what so ever). Sub 6:54 seems quite attainable by the end of the spring season if I keep up this base work and then do my speed training. Overall, it was pretty good, certainly better then the day of dread that preceded it.

Way to go Neb! Good luck with the team.

I am an old dude new to rowing and am just getting into the erg. Hoping to get on the open water this fall as well to try it out.
