i just saw that other girls post, and i just wanted to say the same thing basically. Ive rowed for 2 years now and i train 3 times a day with my crew, i love it so much and all your posts are relatable. I love rowing blogs and yours is amazing
I just wanted to say that i absolutley love this blog, and every single one actually applies to me. I started rowing a few months ago and yeah i realise I'm still (very) new i love the sport and cannot imagine anything id rather be doing. everything about it just makes me amazed that im lucky enough to do it. even though i am starting to build up awkward amounts of leg muscle and shoulder muscle, and enourmas blood blisters and callouses it dosent matter, because its making me a better rower
Oh my god, thank you so much. I’m so happy that someone is benefiting from this and that so many people can connect to it. It’s okay to be new to it, it sucks you in pretty quickly. This message meant a lot to me, thank you for sending it.
It’s such a sensual sport…you are utilizing every sense you have to power your shell through the water. I can close my eyes and feel the center of my body and whether it’s off balance or not, whether I’m rushing the slide, I can hear the depth of my oars in the water and can gauge how relaxed I am.
Faintly as tolls the evening chime, Our voices keep tune and our oars keep time And all the way, to guide their chime, With falling oars they kept their time. Pull thy oar, all hands, pull thy oar Till thou be stiff and red and sore…
