Going Crazy On My Day Off

Yes, I know. It's actually my second day off. Kirsten and I were both a little stir crazy and needed some activity. We went skiing at MTU trails for a quickie. The same balance drills - they're helping! Then we took a little tour of the Oak Loop. After watching the Olympics online, we wanted to go faster than we had originally intended. At the top of the last rise, we stopped to catch our (well mine, anyway) breath before finishing up. Then V4 drills all the way back down. Back to the house where we did a few Crossfit type mobility things, mostly hips and shoulders.

And that was it. So why all the caution, the easy day? You see, tomorrow is the Erg Monster, a 2k race on indoor rowing machines. I originally set a goal of achieving a 7:30 2k. Tomorrow will provide a good test of my training, or lack of it. I haven't been on an erg for a month. We'll see what I can do. I promise to let you know.

Prepared list of excuses:
1. Oh, I haven't really trained for this. (Truly, my schedule has been on again, off again. But, thinking back, it usually is.)
2. I've had to work a lot on skiing technique. Mine was lousy.
3. I did too much of a workout yesterday.

Do you think that will fool anyone?
