For reference, as of last Friday(1) I had rowed(2) 50 km in the previous seven days and the extra weight I don't want(3) *is still here*. So frustrating.
1) Because we took the weekend off and went to the beach. But there was kayaking and hiking in steamy heat, so. 2) Technically erged. I live in Taipei and can't get on the water as much as I'd like. FWIW, the women's coach at UCSD (who also does masters clinics) says erging is ~20% more effort. 3) 5-10 lbs, not thirty, but I'm hoping to head it off before it gets any worse.
