A very nice row.  I felt a lot less tired than after previous outings like this.  I also am feeling a bit smoother at r28.  A lot of the strokes are fully clear of the water on recovery.

Tomorrow: 2 x 30′, Cat V, r22  Medium tempo workout.  I need to fold each 30′ block into 2 chunks to fit it in the river, but I’ll make the turns in less than a minute.

Sunday: 4 x 20′ / 2′ Dynamic

Crappy weather and I was too lazy to go to Newton to row.  Around 3, I decided to do an easy cruise of a session on the dynamic.  The goal would be to work on getting my heels down and keeping them there.  Hopefully also keep reminding myself to sit up tall in the seat and hinge at the hips.

Allowing for how much I loathe the dynamic, it was a lovely session.  I was relaxed and comfortable throughout.
