A great Friday - and another RowPro session

It is amazing how energizing something as simple as a day off work can be.  This week my son had off school all week (mid-winter break) and I decided to take one day off myself.  No big plans.  Just a simple day off with the specific intention of not accomplishing anything in particular.  Kind of like the Sabbath day I blogged about a few weeks ago.  It was really a great day.  CrossFit, Starbucks, ran a few errands, spent some time with my son, got a 10K row in (and pulled another PR!)  Now, I think I'm gonna kick back and take in a movie.  Life is good...

But really, the thing that stands out for me about the day was the time I got to spend with my friends.  At the gym, at Starbucks, and later on the phone... I am very blessed to have such great people in my life.

As for the RowPro session... I did a 10K before dinner.   I started off at what seemed like a farily easy pace, but as I hit the 5500m mark, I realized that with just a little more effort I could break 41 minutes.  So the second half of the row I upped the intensity and managed to finish with another personal record... 40:48.6.   Next week, we may see the 40 minute barrier break...

I managed to get RowPro connected to my Concept2 Logbook (thanks for the pointers Johan!) but I think I did find a bug/quirk in the software.  It seems if I program the rowing session from the PM3 monitor, rather than set it up in the RowPro software, the session does not terminate correctly when I hit the 10K mark.   I'll have to try setting up the whole session in RowPro next time.   I am anxious to try setting up some more complicated CrossFit Endurance intervals with RowPro - there have been several that can't be programmed directly on the PM3 monitor.   More playing with the software this weekend.

Hey!  I still have a whole weekend ahead of me!!!  Did I mention that this was a great Friday?
