14275m 1:00:00 (NOMAN Ibiza-Barcelona, row session 10)
*23 days until the race*
Pace: 2:06/500m average
I’m keeping this short and sweet today. I am extremely pleased with this workout – it turns out a few days away from the rowing machine has done me a lot of good!
I’ve just returned from my most consistent row thus far! I’m not sure I could have maintained 3500m+/15:00 splits for another hour but nevertheless I am feeling really positive and strong right now, this workout was just what I needed and I was further buoyed up when a couple of people who have seen me rowing of late came to ask what I might be training for! I showed them some pictures from the London Regatta Centre and talked a little about ocean rowing in general and the NOMAN race and campaign. One of them took this photograph:Tomorrow is a rest day and also payday so I’m going to make the most of it and meet up with a good friend for dinner! I may even treat myself to a new Kindle as mine seems to have given up the ghost over the last month and I really want to get stuck in to Siddhartha Mukherjee’s ‘The Emperor of all Maladies’ because I really want to know more about the disease I have chosen to fight against!
