I was inspired today when I read Row2k.com’s article on “A Quiet Example of Excellence: Dr. Lawrence Klecatsky – 1941-2018”. Larry Klecatsky rowed for the NYAC and recently passed away. The article captures the spirit that Larry brought to rowing and his impact on those around him. If you have a few minutes, I highly recommend reading the article.

The workouts for this week are below. Jason will be leading this Saturday’s group workout!

As always, please be sure to exercise at your own pace and take your time. None of the workouts are required and the following is only intended as suggested workouts to try.

Good luck to all of the athletes who are pursuing the Concept2 Holiday Challenge. Visit the Winter Rowing for Adults page on Sagamore Rowing website for more info.
