Week 8 Summary   115′ HIT
385′ LIT 
 105′ HIT
296′ LIT
  • 91% of HIT minutes, but I missed the key “hard distance” session
  • 76% of LIT minutes, based on taking an extra rest day this weekend.  I am not able to allocate as much time to training as I had planned.

 

This takes on greater urgency now.  I just received an email letting me know that my bid for a slot in the Men’s Master (50+) 2x for the Head of the Charles was accepted.  So, there’s a good reason to train!

      I’m planning to row with the guy who got me into the sport 5 years ago. He’s been rowing for years, but he missed last season with a torn bicep tendon. He’s coming back, but we will have to set reasonable goals for the race.
