Last year we came in at just over 7 minutes. Not fast enough to place, but a very respectable first-time performance. (link here!). This year we had two boats and were really committed to training to improve our performance...I'm towards the front of the boat in the white visor...paddles up!
Watching the sun come up over the castle is just amazing :)
My boat buddies...
In the end we were just 12 seconds away from qualifying and over a minute faster than last year!
Which just goes to show that rowing is like anything else - practice makes perfect. So now back to some more running - I need to defeat this heat!
