Another training in the quad. The program called for steady state and technique, so we decided that we would do short bursts of technique at high rate. 🙂
We are a talking quad. There is a lot of commenting going on, especially from 3-seat. In the end I commented that with a maximum of three trainings to go before the race, it’s also important to get relaxed and just focus on moving the boat. Then I let us row with eyes closed (.except for bow who has to spot swimmers and confused recreational boats). We even did a closed eye start and that worked out pretty well. And after 500m with closed eyes, three seat commented that that felt good. 🙂
Sometimes we can be overcritical.
