4 x 2 mins (2.5 mins) DF 130, avg 1:54.6/500m

Short and sweet, felt natural to hold ~1:54 pace. That would be 7:36 for 2k and I’d really like to go faster than that on race day. I don’t want a DNF or to be so tired I start pulling 2:00/500m and above, but I think it’s more dangerous to row entirely within myself and not challenge my mental strength. I can’t dig deep for 1k but I can certainly suffer a final 250-300m meaning I just need to get myself to 1.7k in one piece.
