The end of this week marks our first competition against other schools! Much like the first races of an outdoor season, we are still a work in progress, so we tend to look at this as a training session and not to give days off in preparation for it. That will come later, before the Canadian Indoors and Ontario Indoors. So pre-race training volume will be normal.
As for speedwork, I’ve done my training map for three weeks out from the Canadian Indoors, one of those regattas we ARE targeting as a big one. We will do speedwork on one of our erg days this week, on one of our erg days next week, then two of our erg days on each of the following two weeks. RADAR athletes can expect to follow a similar schedule as to what is published on the Rowing Canada site the week of the Canadian Indoors.
