You know you need to improve your 2k erg scores for college admissions and for speed out on the water.
You love to row… usually.
All you want is to jump in the boat and go for a great row…
Letting the wind rush against you as the adrenaline pumps through you, balanced with the tranquility of the water…
Each powerful stroke taking you further and further away.
But rowing isn’t just about being on the water. There’s training, performance.
You know you have to put in the work to fully enjoy being on the water.
You have to do your 2k erg test.
You feel mentally blocked on hitting a certain time.
Or breaking a 2 minute split.
Or breaking 8 minutes or 7 minutes.
You feel like some split times are impossible or unattainable for you.
You feel like maybe you’ve plateaued at a certain split and you can’t get any faster.
You’re going out too hard at the beginning and unable to sprint at the end.
And eventually, you start to dread the 2k test.
That is absolutely not what you want.
What you actually want… is that sense of accomplishment you get after finishing an excellent 2k…
That feeling of power from having hit your target you set for yourself, you planned for, and you trained for…
And the confidence boost you get as you notice your body sprinting at the end, edging out even more seconds off your best pace.
So how do you get back to that?
