ROWING: Day 7 0

ROWING: Day 7

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...

ROWING: Day 6

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...

ROWING: Day 5

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...

ROWING: Day 3

Can you hear that? Yes? Wonder what it is? It’s the sound of progress! Yeah baby! After yesterday, I didn’t think I would row again today. Guess what. I was wrong. Pure Madness. But look at those numbers. Despite my blistered fingers, my stomach that hurts like hell, I’ve beaten my times from sunday. The first set of 10 minutes went in an average of 2:10.2, as opposed to 2:12.4. The second went in 2:12.9, which was previously 2:16.9 seconds...

ROWING: Day 2 0

ROWING: Day 2

Today, some housemates that have been rowing for over a year now, invited me to come and train with them. Big mistake. Remember how I only did 2x 10 minutes yesterday? Their normal training regime consists of 2x 22 minutes. Being stubborn, I would do the same. Another big mistake. Well, I did hold it together for the first set, but the second was miserable. I was about to throw up, my head was throbbing with each heartbeat, and stars...

ROWING: Day 1

Today I felt like rowing. No, I’m not the rowing equivalent of Forrest Gump. But I did went to Njord to row. It’s been almost a year since my last time on one of these machines, so I expected to fail miserably. But, as it turned out, I wasn’t that bad. Yeah, it could’ve been much better, but I was still able to keep a steady pace. Results are after the jump:
