8's demons

Took a slot in an 8 last night to try to exorcise some of my big boat demons... I got plonked in stroke which helped. For a somewhat new crew it came together very nicely, and I got to relax a bit and feel the balance and run of the boat. Trying to feel where and who was doing good and bad things behind me. It was excellent experience and a good workout.

I feel more relaxed again now about getting back in an 8 :o)

Training otherwise this week has been haphazard... did a goodish erg and ROWperfect session on Tuesday, and might be on the water tonight. Cycling to and from work in top gear is getting easier and I think my leg length is still improving - if only my shoulders would follow suit :o)
