Crew practice

One of the things I used to do before I crashed, was row. I rowed with a women’s team. I also rowed a single, but even rowing a single involves meeting and navigating thru people at the boathouse.

Tonight was my second practice since I’ve been back. It went much better tonight. It wasn’t as hot as it was Sunday and the workout was a base building workout instead of a speed workout. And we had sufficient water, and water breaks.
Last Sunday I ran out of water, not good. Tonight I had a 42 ounce water bottle with me, and I drank it all.

Anyway, I kept my mouth shut for the entire row and just concentrated on myself. That’s difficult, because in my usual position as bow its my job to mention things, sometimes… sometimes it’s not. đŸ™‚

But today I wasn’t in bow, at my request, so I could just focus on rowing.

Keegan got to ride in the launch with the coach. She wouldn’t leave me while she had her cape on so I took it off and off she trotted with the coach. But she did head straight back to me the minute she got out of the launch. I’ve got to say, it made me smile to see my happy buddy trotting back to me with her ears all perked up and a big grin on her face.
She fell asleep on the way home.

So I feel pretty good. I handled the people pretty well (with Keegan), got a good workout without overdoing it, and my little truck just purred on the way home.

    Sounds like a good day indeed. Hope you have more ‘boreing’ days like this.
