Another 1k simulation. We’re in Račice for the youth national championships. We took our double and this morning, before they closed the canal for the races.
We did a warming up in the parallel canal up to the start, then a few practice starts, and after 2750m of warming up we got ready for a hard 1k.
Romana didn’t want to row in front of the grandstand. So we rowed from 750m to 1750m (as the distances are marked on the canal, which I as an old fart would call 1250 to 250).
We rowed a 3:42 in windstill conditions at a relatively low rate my legs still hurt from yesterday’s effort but on the races that will also be he case.
I have a feeling that this venue is slower than our lake. Perhaps because our lake is deeper? Our lake is harder in the catch but faster. Might be just imagination.
