I set off today with an aim to keep an average pace of 2:26 or less.
About 2k into the row I realised I was good for much more than that; here are the splits:
I knocked the original time out of the water by nearly 90 seconds with a new time of 47:41.3 with an average pace of 2:23.0. I noticed my heart rate peaked in the last split at 184 bpm - I think the highest its ever been is 189, so there is still room for improvement.
As for the after effects of my row:
- I have not been this sweaty for a long time (even after the marathon).
- My face went a lovely shade of red, and remained so for a good half an hour afterwards.
- It makes me think that I can get an even better time if I continue with my training.
I am currently ranked 11th out of 23 lightweight 30-39 females in the C2 world online rankings.
I also reached 6 million lifetime metres today too!
