One More Day

The rest of the US Team arrived over the last two days, and a few of them have managed to get on the river.  Some are still out trying to find wood to make racks for the cars, some still trying to set up boats.  They don’t have enough time to learn the river for the classic.  One day is not enough to be able to learn and race a 7 km course with hard whitewater.

I trained specifically for the classic this year- preparataion for the 20 minute race is much different than for the 2 minute sprint next Sunday.  For me, tomorrow is the day.  Just over 24 hours ’til I start.  Around 2:00 p.m. I’ll be on the water for the 20 minute run.  My stroke rate must be high, and I need to avoid corrections.  The course is perfectly suited to pacing well- hard whitewater at the begining, easier water at the end where you can hammer.

I’ll post results as soon as I can.
