Being a Dutchman isn’t something to be proud of, this last week. At least, when you’re talking football. The Danish beat us by surprise with a 0-1 victory, and the Germans walked on our barily living corpse with a 1-2 victory. Only by sheer luck does Holland still have a minute chance of going through to the next round: we would have to beat Portugal with at least a two-goal difference, and Germany would have to beat Denmark.
So yeah, these are today’s results. I went below the magic line of 2:10min/500m twice, and the second set was even below 2:09min/500m, at 2:08.6. I was afraid that after the first set, I would be too tired to pull it off for a second time. I was wrong, in a positive and satisfying manner. I’m actually pretty proud of this. It did help that people where watching me, that spurred me on to put in just that little extra effort. But as you might be able to imagine, my body couldn’t get off the machine for the first few...
Another day, another post about rowing it seems. Well, yeah, but these results as seen above were actually from Tuesday. Not today. I did row today, but I decided to give it its own post. So there are going to be two posts about rowing today, of which this one is the first. And as you can see, I went below the magic line of 2:10 with an average per 500 meter of 2:09.8. I was actually pretty proud of that.
It has been a while since I posted anything about my adventures on the rowing-apparatus. It’s not as if I’ve done nothing at all. As you can see, this is ‘Day 5’. The last post I made was ‘Day 3’. How is that so? Well, that’s because last friday I didn’t use a machine, but an actual boat. And you can’t take pictures of your statistics when you’re in an actual boat. So here it is, day five, with three sets of ten minutes rowed.
