First training with Radek in the double

Tuesday was planned ambitiously, with a cycle to work and back followed by a 4x1000m session on the erg. It was too busy to go to the lake. There was a too strong wind to row anyway.

Cycled to work. At the end of the afternoon I cycled to the pub where one of my teams were having an off-site workshop. Of course they asked me to stay for dinner, which I did. Then I cycled home, and I was not in a mood to do an erg session on top of that. Besides, I had to tell Romana of my new US trip early May. :-/

Today Radek and I went out in the double. Time to get some kilometers together, because in less than two weeks we’ll row Slovak Open. Radek being a garden architect, this is the top season for him, and his training has suffered a bit under the overwhelming amount of customers he has. Not a problem.

It was raining lightly and the lake was mirror flat. No need to take out the wind meter. Zero meters per second.

The session was “three lakes” of 30″/60″ rest. Originally I planned for four lakes and 45″/60″ but I made a small concession to my double partner. Spent some time making phone calls before the outing, so my phone died after 28 intervals. I guess now I could tell you I did 28 more but I didn’t. Just a 1k cooling down. I did cheat in another way, though. I took my brand new low i sculls which are actually meant for the single. Made it much easier to tap down and rate up. Remarkable difference.

Some new pictures from Saturday’s races. I think they give a good impression of the place where I row:
