Whenever you work out for long periods of time you build up lactic acid, its what makes your legs hurt when you go for a run. Today after practice my legs felt like they were nothing but lactic acid.
During the fall season of rowing we row about 3 miles or 6 kilometers. This distance varies from race to race but a distance of between 5 and 6 kilometers is average. So today we did a 6k test on the machines and then a 5k warm up on the water followed by a 5k race piece. And then tonight I rowed about 8k again. So I pulled a grand total of 24k today or 14.4 miles today. So I'm completely wiped out and tomorrow we are going to be lifting which means tonight before bed I am going to stretch out and try really hard not to think about tomorrow. For now it's nap time
