A Row in the Snow

I got no pictures or video this morning, which is a shame. The water was perfect and it was just cold enough that the moisture falling took the form of big, fat, wonderful snow; not enough to get you soaked, just enough to be really pretty. There’s something quite sublime about rowing on flat water in the snow.

Good work done today on rhythm, flow, and continuing to emphasize focus points in the stroke: SEND on the finish and a continuous, powerful drive. We also saw the first of what I’m sure will be many competitive pieces between a women’s 8 and a men’s 4. Last year these pieces helped us find all sorts of speed that’s hard to get without competition and I’m sure the same will be true in 2009.
