The Rowing Camp

It was a great outing, and fantastic to have a sparring partner. It was also very hot, which I think explains the high heart rate.

On Wednesday, I had a very hectic day. I had to go to the office to do a big demo (which turned out to go really well). Then we had a dramatic row with the eight.

Lots of soul searching. It was also extremely choppy, which was a change after the super flat water we had had for three days.

On Thursday, I did a race preparation workout, combined with some technical exercises and start practice. I also invented a new drill, the “Romanian Drill”. I may explain it later. For now, I keep it as a secret drill for camp participants.

We did a 250m and a 500m at full power, racing side by side. It was great!

On Friday, after the end of the camp. Romana and I took the double and did “one lake”.

Just a nice low rate row to enjoy the lake after we had successfully completed the camp!
