Feels like a short week after camp

actually a long week though……. it’s 13 days

Tuesday water – race starts – with Nina, packed away in record time

Wednesday water – power strokes – fun with Joe


Thursday – recovering from kidney bean poisoning

Friday rest day

Saturday Petone Regatta – 4 – shelly B, novice 8 win, quad cancelled, no sunburn

https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/944879467 – v stressful being stroke in a 4, the first time I’d been in one since we last raced in Porirua. Went ok, we didn’t die or fall out (just about didn’t anyway……

https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/944879482 – the horrible 8 we had at Corporate – Shelly B, crab-a-rama, but awesome cox, nice and calming and we got there to a win!

Sunday – up stupidly early to watch the All Blacks, snooze, 10am on water working on the legs

Monday 6am start “gentle run” and then sprints on the ergs


Tuesday 2km test – I knocked good 3 seconds off my last time, again an awesome cox who kept me going – getting closer to being under 8mins – I WILL get there

Wednesday – can’t remember – something inside – certainly on the ergs……..

Thursday on the water in an 8……. need to keep up with this blog……

Friday boat loading

Saturday, up at 5:30 to head to the Manawatu for the day. Row, BBQ breakfast, more rowing – amazing, lovely flat water and lots of time to work on technique – loved it. Somehow managed to burn the back of my legs though……
