2k Row @ ~90%
Notes: This was the first time I have every rowed a 2k for time (or at least I can remember). I have done 2500m before, 1k, 5k, and 1 hour, but never 2k. Plan going in was to go negative splits starting at 1:44, then descending from there. Wasn't in the cards today, and by the 1k mark, I was hurting. Kept it right around 1:45/1:46 for the last 1k and was pleased to go sub 7min for my first 2k attempt. The limiter here was MY QUADS. I was seized up for a good 2 or 3 minutes afterward. Lungs were fine but I did feel a bit of firebreath afterward. Tomorrow I have a triple (starting with Open WOD 12.5) so I need to stay fresh and prepare for a solid performance tomorrow.
