Why logging matters 

1000m attempt #1 – 4:02.5

1000m attempt #8 – 4:00.8

Day 4 of consecutive 2x1000m rowing. In between attempt #1 and #8 were heaps of 4:08. 

There are also some failed attempts. I had two failed attempts at finishing 1000m this morning and only managed to complete attempt #7 when I stopped looking at the time. 

Tomorrow is “rest” day. Probably going to go for a morning paddle. Next week’s target is to try 5 consecutive days of 2x1000m. 

p.s. managed to do 5×5 pull ups last night after 2 weeks of training. Started from doing 2 reps so I’m pretty pleased with that too. 


Third consecutive day …

Third consecutive day of 2x1000m. It’s somewhat between 4:08-4:10. The plan is to bring it down to 3:35-3:40 over the next 6 months. At the moment I’m happy aiming for a sub-4.
