Timestamps to the show

01:00 Welcome. Marlene was teaching at the US Rowing Convention on Training for Life. She covered the effects of ageing on your rowing practice and keeping consistent training.
07:00 There’s a new Royle Row website http://roylerow.com/ it includes a link to the Newsletter archive in the footer
09:00 Exercising versus Training. What’s the difference? Training does not go inside exercise. You can do WOTD and that’s exercise. But it has not relation to what you did last week and plan for tomorrow.
11:00 Training – there is a goal. When you are training there’s a system. Each session contributes to the period of training. The Faster 5 sits under the training umbrellas. We do the thinking for you. Train effectively. Challenging but do-able.
18:00 How to stay balanced as a single sculler. Balance and stability matter. balance is the narrow width of the hull. Stability is a wider platform – keeping the riggers level. You have to know where your body weight is and stay symmetrical. How are you sitting on your seat? Footstretchers? Head?
Sit at the release, blades square – weight over the handles. Do the tapping drill. Level riggers equal a balanced hull.
22:30 Stability is within your control. Your hands, downward pressure on the handles while the oars are out of the water. Staying stable takes your core and your handle height consciousness. Left hand to the stern of the right hand. Faster 5 Bladework ebook (on our website). Watch videos of Thomas Lange sculling in rough water.
28:30 Keep steady in the body – equals being quiet. Adjust on the handle. This skill enables us to row with oars off the water.
32:30 Staying emotionally balanced in the 1x. This is “type 2 fun” – you do it and afterwards it feels great. But you’re afraid beforehand.
Mix it up with a crew boat sometimes.
Be clear what your focus is – what you’re working on. Train in g1x but also in a group as a pack single sculls outing.
Go to a camp and join other rowers for fun, especially if you train alone.
42:00 Personal body maintenance. Rebecca went to her osteopath for a “loosener” body massage and realignment before the holidays.
