By, Will Daly, stroke of the USA LM4-
Today was a day of thirds; third in the women’s quad, third in the women’s double, third in the lightweight men’s four, third in the men’s eight. The good news is all these boats are moving on and will get to keep racing. The women’s eight did win their heat, for the rest of the days results and how things are progressing click here.
So I didn’t get much behind the scenes today because I had my own racing to take care of. Our race went fairly well (I am in the men’s lightweight four), at least it gave us a good starting point to work with. We chose not to go to a world cup so that we could train a little bit more and not have to worry about losing weight. From a physiological perspective it seems like it was a great choice and hopefully that’s what it comes down to as this week wears on.
More racing tomorrow, I have to put on my compression tights and get to bed.
