interesting day today – woke up reasonably early and with no time pressure for catching buses etc. the long row was open to most options.
so I set out at a slow, easy pace, with the intention of going for as long and/or far as possible.
but the body had other ideas – aches and fatigue in upper and lower body from the past two days, and backside muscles that had enough after just a few kilometres.
in the end I called it a day at the 1 hour mark – the fact that I only just slightly exceeded the 10km mark should give a good idea of how ‘easy” the pace was. I usually do 10km in about 45 minutes.
but that’s fine – my body knew what it was or wasn’t capable of, and a 10km row is quite sufficient in terms of the training schedule. looking forward to a (hopeful) lie-in for tomorrow’s rest day!
