Be Happy : TRC Start of Season Party

30 Sep

Pirate Night at TRC!

Due to the amount of novices at TRC this year, the club’s social committee decided to put on a start of season party to introduce the novices to the club.

A pirate themed party, to which only novices seemed to have made the effort!

It was a good evening though as it was nice for us all to get together without the usual lycra ensembles!
As for introductions to the rest of the club members, the seniors and elites turned up much later and much more drunk than anyone else – gave us a good insight to the expected culture of the sport! It seems the drinking is just as competitive as the racing! And the mantra of work hard play harder was quite evident!

As I have been dry all year – minus one or two special occasions – a girl’s day at the races isn’t the same without champagne! – I decided to test out the possibility of drinking only softdrinks at the socials, and it wasn’t that bad! However I think a few may have been on best behavior for the first party!

We’ll soon find out at the next one!

Train Hard : First Session @ TRC

19 Sep

So, the first training session at TRC.

I’m rather glad I came to these sessions with some prior gym training and a fairly good level of fitness – the circuit session is hard work, but planking for a minute is nothing new.

Is it wrong I enjoy it??

Be Happy : Start of Season BBQ

Thames Rowing Club – Start of Season BBQ

 

So the invite came through, and here I am again.

Stood on the balcony at Thames Rowing Club, having been given the start of season briefing from the coaches I chatted to a few of the girls looking to sign up.

Everyone seems really lovely – coaches and novices.

I’ve got a feeling this could the start of something big!
