Is it race day yet?
My name is Emily, I row for New Trier in Winnetka, Illinois. I'm a junior on JV/V. Rowing is my addiction.
OH MY GOSH GOOD JOB!!!!!!!! Pretty sure that’s better than my PR as a freshman!!!! Obliterating your coaches goal is the BEST feeling, you know they have to be proud of you and you know that you deserve to be there :) I’m so happy for you, keep me updated on your 2ks!!
2k’s without music do suck, but in reality the helpfulness of the music is all in your head. I don’t know what your 2k is obviously, but you have to go into it thinking “I am going to kick that 2k’s ass and I’m taking no prisoners”. Do the 2k mentally multiple times throughout the day so you are well prepared. Whatever your goal spit is, stay at it, don’t too much above it cause it will just mess with your mind. And make sure you don’t fly and die!!!!! Go out hard for the first 100m and then settle into your split, and then the last 300m haul ass and hold nothing back. Let me know how you do!!!!!
