Tuesday: Steady State

Sunday and Monday:  No rowing.  I was at Yale attending my son’s graduation.  I’m very proud of him.  He finished his bachelor’s and master degree in four years and made Phi Beta Kappa doing it.  I can only assume that he got his brains from his mother.

Tuesday, I was back on the river but feeling a bit under motivated.  I decided to take a step back from hard core sessions and focus on technique for a few sessions.  Today, I basically rowed the whole session doing slow roll ups.

Aside from being cut off by a kayak, it was basically uneventful.  It is very difficult to stay focused on technique every stroke, but I think I am starting to make some progress.
