Last Friday's 2x1500m time trial went quite well. Percentages were much higher due to better conditions (and hopefully better rowing), and we had the second highest percentage...... Ironically we switched places with the heavy women's 2x and they beat us by .5% on each piece.
This week is a little more lonely as I am back in the 1x. Kate took my spot in stroke and Lisa was brought into the boat. I always find this part of selection the most nerve wracking (the part where you are not in the boat) because there is nothing you can do. Correction: There is something you can do, and that is make the boat that you are in go as fast as possible. That is my goal for this coming week. We have time trials again on Wednesday and Friday.
