    2 x 5,000m/8min rest - steady state

    Didn't feel especially good today though I'm not sure if that was more mental (from having a really awful row on Saturday) than it was physical. More than likely a a combination of both. Either way, being dizzy after 5k of steady state is not ok. The second 5k wasn't as bad but my split was also 4.7 seconds slower (which I'm fine with).

    Goals for today and tomorrow:
    Eat more food (preferably protein dense)
    Sleep through the night
    Be more conscious about drinking water (this shouldn't be an actual issue but I should cover my bases)

    Morning erging on slides
    4x 2000m/6' rest full pressure - rate of 24
    With a 10 minute warm up, "I want you all nice and sweaty!" - more like 15 for me given what time I got there.

    My first two splits were 1:59.8 and 1:59.2 but the third one was six seconds slower - I was so done but had a good rest and got my last split down. In the end my average was 2:02.8. Note the goal was to just go all out, unless you had an average split from last year to compare it to. We're doing the same workout in 3 or 4 weeks at which point our goal will be to row at our average split.
    I'm getting stronger and stronger, I just need to eat more (and figure out how to go to sleep at a decent hour). I felt better than on Monday, but not as well as I should have.

    Today I did kettlebell workouts:

    KB carries complex with 24kg KB -
    1 minute each waiters carry R then L, rack carry R then L and finally suitcase carry R then L with 15 second transition to change carry completed in 7:30 - average HR = 128 bpm (71 percent) maximum HR = 141 bpm (78 percent) - total 68 calories.

    Burpees x 5 plus two-hand swing x 15 with 24kg KB starting new round every 1:45 for 10 rounds = 16:42 - average HR = 153 bpm (85 percent) maximum HR = 163 bpm (91 percent) - total 189 calories.

    That was it, done at local park, a little chilly and windy.

    BTW, I’m a heart rate monitor junkie.

    And evening workout was erging with the men's team. My very long nap and making sure I was well fed worked - at least for this evening. That said, even with the BLT, cider, and fries that I had for my second dinner (I ate an hour and a half before erg'ing as well), I'm still 700ish calories under. Mind you, not counting the minimal meters I erged during the rests, I burned over 1,300 calories today and while I wanted to go get candy on my way home, which would have taken care of some of those, it was too late to stop by the store. Maybe I'll eat a bowl of leftover oatmeal.

    Oh yea and for the actual workout
    10ish min warm up
    9x 3:00/1:00rest
    I didn't have a good reference for a goal for the 3:00. Most people based it off of a 20 min test but I don't think I've done one yet - I'd have to really check. I did mine based off of my goal to have my split be under 2:00.

    The rate for intervals 1-3 were at 20, 3-6 were at 21, and 7-9 were at 22.

    This twice daily team erg'ing is only going to happen through the first week of 2019. Once school starts back up I won't be able to sustain it.

    Yoga, jumprope, pull ups, dead hangs, wall assisted handstands and L-sits. Tried a couple free handstands afterwards. Thought I found the balance point for a few seconds but quickly lost it. Will keep working on it...
