When sessions go like that then you remember why you got so addicted in the first place... awesome!
The weekend brings only one outting in the senior 2 pairs event on Sunday, we aren't senior 2 but the distance of 500m should give us every chance of putting in a decent showing :o)

Could have been that I was inspired by the new ARA website - http://www.ara-rowing.org/
Their revision looks great, and the little content that I have gone looking for is well structured.
I also noted that Evesham Rowing Club have revamped their site as well - http://www.evesham-rowing-club.co.uk/
Another effort in streamlining and clean looking content. They seem to have pulled it off nicely, and all the content is dated to show the freshness (or indeed otherwise) of their pages. Many a rowing site looks great, but often leave you wondering when last it was updated.

Two sessions a day has proved interesting, and thanks to being unemployed at the moment, easy to fit into the day. The kind of stuff I've been doing with the cross-trainer (xtrainer) is something I could still do on my return to the working life... I hope to get it so engrained that I will make time for the sessions because I'll be addicted to the activity.
Three outting on the river always helps the mood levels. Especially as now the clocks have changed and the days are longer, the options are more flexible. The elevation in mood with the clock change suggests I am more prone to SAD (seasonal affective disorder - not sure thats the right word combination, sorry). I reckon its an aging thing that makes daylight and associated activities missed more and more each winter.

Got an unexpected double outting tonight that was good in patches. Definitely feeling our way into the four oar boat, we know what we should be doing, its just a case of putting it together. I did find that having watched some footage from last years Rowing World Championships I had the stroke much more clearly pictured in my head. I will definitely be watching a bit more of that before the weekend outtings ;o)
