Well I am about to head off to the Australian Rowing Championships where I will compete in the pair, four and our State eight. What I will intend to do is record the various experiences I have with each boat and hopefully a few good result too.
How am I feeling now?
Fairly relaxed about it all, but I am very aware of how other crew will be keen to get a win over us this week. It is almost like we will have a big target painted on our backs. After the last two weeks I know my health has not been the best, but feel I have recovered pretty well. The training over the last few days has gone well so there are no excuses. My perception of how Duncan is prepared is that I am probably going to have my work cut out for me just keep the boat straight from the bow seat. Should be fun and we will get our first chance to race the four together. It’s time to see if it has any potential, not that I am a fan of that word. We have to be our greatest critics of performance and so when the week winds up, we will have a better sense of the possibilities of the pair, four and even eight going forward.
