22 Aug 2012: Woman Is a Devil

Notes

This one’s for you Britt 🙂

So anyway, “pick a long row” day again and Britt has laid down the challenge – 2 x half marathon rows before the end of August – or 100 burpees per day added to the next training schedule… like the song says, Woman is a Devil!

My aim this morning was to take the time down to the 1 hour 45 minute mark. To do that it would be a simple case of keeping the rate around 2:30 per 500m. I actually kept the rate a little below that, and finished off about 2:00 per 500m in the final 500m to 1km.

The net result was a great personal best that took over 5 minutes off the previous best. Gotta be happy with that.
