Monday: Totally blind 40 minutes

Well, sometimes you just have to improvise.  I went to the gym at lunch and settled in on the one erg.  I found the batteries dead in the PM5, so I replaced them.  Then I got all set up and started pulling.  The PM would not register any strokes.  I reset everything, and the PM would dutifully show me my HR, but not the pace, meters or stroke rate.

I was losing time, so I decided to just set up my iphone to show me my heart rate, and then I counted strokes per minute using the elapsed time there.  I tried to hold about 20spm and I pushed hard enough to do most of the row as UT1.  I backed off the pressure a bit as my HR passed 157.

Very unsatisfying, but at least I rowed.



Tomorrow:  Back to Fluid in Newton.  I think I will do an easy rate ladder session to get re-acclimated to the flat water rowing.  I’m not entirely sure, but I don’t think I have been in my Fluid since June 21!  :-O
