Very quiet in the office this week; I’ve hardly heard from or seen anyone as people wrap up the short week of class and head out for Thanksgiving. A good time to grab a cup of coffee and work on scheduling the spring season.

All the regattas are set, of course, so mostly what I’m doing is trying to figure out the practice plans. Which days to erg on, which days to row. What kinds of workouts. When are the erg tests. Making sure the practices are both technically and physically set up to send us into racing prepared, and that we’re doing enough both on the water and the erg to perform well on the test days and on the racecourse. Basic questions that come up every year are things like; how many test days are enough? Is this too much work? Is there a good balance in the training?

The main reason we make plans is to have something to change.

Pioneer Crew wishes you all a very happy Thanksgiving– I’m looking forward to it. Long bike rides scheduled for tomorrow, to stimulate the appetite, and for Friday, to assuage the guilt.
