05 nov 2012: sunday bloody sunday

following yesterday’s marathon row, I gave myself the day off from the gym today. not surprisingly, i was very tired by the time yesterday evening came around, and slept very well. resting up today will give the muscles and joints more time to recover, ready for a weigh-in and training session tomorrow afternoon.

overall i pulled up well after the row; the main things today are a little soreness in the butt muscles, and a few dull aches around the upper body and legs. nothing that won’t be fixed with a little rest, staying hydrated, and moving around.

one thing that dawned on me this morning was that i averaged a pace of around 2:34 per 500m. there was a time that i would have been very happy to hit 2:30 for 500m full stop. from there i was happy to be able to maintain that for a kilometer or so. to hold 2:34 over 42.2km is frigging awesome!
