Preparation for the visit of our company’s president in full swing. Went to dinner with the President and a few other people in the evening. No time for training. Temperatures in Brno: 32 degrees C.
We had a nice private ride in the Honeywell tram:
Good review with the President. Very useful and time well spent, but of course exhausting, high energy, and once he was on his way to his next destination, I needed to relax a bit. Finished some chores and then headed for the lake.
I didn’t feel very energetic so I binned the original plan to do a 4x1000m. Somehow, 8x500m at 3 minutes rest looked much more achievable, so I settled for that.
It was still above 30 degrees when I pushed off from the dock a little before 5pm.
The 500ms felt lousy. Also, there was some wind and there were a lot of motor boats and sailing boats on the lake so there was chop combined with wake, which made for awful rowing. Not happy at all.
I lowered the rate drastically in the 2 headwind 500ms that I did and I stopped after 6 intervals. Rowed back feeling tired, but at least I had done some sort of session.
I was shocked when I saw the colorful graphs. I didn’t realize there was so much red. Not sure what’s going on. Perhaps it just getting used to the high temperatures. Definitely this was a “hard work with little reward” session.
I did shoot video. Will upload once I have time.
