The row went much better than I had expected! Other than some breathing issues at around the 2500m mark (I had started thinking about my breathing and as a result started breathing "wrong" - started to get side stitches), I was pretty strong and consistent. I maintained a 1:50 pace for the first 2000m or so but that dropped to a 1:54 by the 4K mark, which I managed to maintain, picking it up slightly in the last 500m. My final time was 18:50.1 Around 40 seconds faster than a year ago!
My next challenge will be the "Brighton Burn" 2k competition this weekend at the University of Rochester. Johan passed along a great link to some recommendations on preparing for a 2k time trial. I'll definitely have to strategize around that. I'm hoping to turn in a sub- 7:00 2K. Hopefully that's within reach. Honestly right now I feel like I could do just about anything... I love it when I get a PR.
