Training weekend

This past weekend our rowing group had coach Carlos Dinares in from Seattle to do some intensive training. And it was intensive! My main takeaway was: stop being weak. Stop hiding behind my pretty okay technique and actually put some power into that sh*t. Since then, I've really felt it in my upper body, which I think must mean that I'm working harder. I knew that I had been slacking, I just really needed something to get me back to pushing myself again.

Here's a video of Fran and I AFTER a little work. Better on the strong finishes, I personally still need to work on getting more "bite" on the catch, as Carlos says. But this was only the first day, so it was decent progress!


Ok. All right. Ok.

I'm here. I'm here!
