Went 1:53 on that 6k last week, was pretty upset about it. Temporarily lost my seat over it. Anyway, I spent the rest of the week in the JV8+ at 7 seat (it's a starboard-rigged boat), laying down technique. Monday, we did 4 x 1500m and I averaged a 1:45.5. HOO RAH. Then Wednesday, did a 20' piece at 22spm with feet out and pieces of looseleaf paper between my shoes and the footstretchers at 1:55. Finally, last night, our coach gave me the chance to win my seat back. We seat raced over 1000m, with our 2V and JV boats. I started in the JV boat and only gave up a seat of open. Then, they switched me with 2V's 4 seat, and we beat the JV boat by 2.5 boat lengths. OH YEAH.
Way to go! Congrats dude, not much feels better than dominating a seat race.
What happened during the 6k? Looks like you pulled right around what I did, but you're killing me on all your other pieces.
