Sunflowers are good.

Just an easy 20 minutes this morning. Depressing how quickly performance deteriorates after a week or so off. Oh well, just marking time at the moment while I tackle other stuff.

Marking time is fine, Muttley, especially when you've got other stuff taking up your energy and attention. Good luck with the house move. Are you moving far?

I am moving literally across the road, CW. It's a long story but briefly, I bought a newbuild a year ago and there's a problem. So the builder's taking it in px for another place. I could do without the hassle but it solves the problem!

Anyhoo ... another easy 20 mins this morning. I've decided to try a change of tack in the hope it will tackle a long-running and nagging twinge/ache in the legs/hips. Instead of a decent sesh rowing or running on alternating days, it'll be a brief row in the morning and a brief run-jog-plod in the afternoon. I'll see if this is beneficial.

I've just done a 1 hour session of 10 minute stroke sequences from the Wolverine plan.

16-18-16-18-16, 18-16-18-16-18, 16-18-20-18-16, all of those changing on 2 minutes.

4,3,2,1 of 16-18-20-22
3,3,3,1 of 16-18-20-22

then 16-18-16-18-16 to begin warming down.

I think doing this stuff is making me think more about stroke length and form and is going to make my stroke more efficient. Physiologically I think its building a bit of strength too as the aerobic load isn't too drastic but to hold, say 2.09 pace on 18 strokes means you're pulling pretty hard.

Interesting. Every day is a school-day.
