Yeah I do - kinda, kinda not! Already got one exam result back and I've passed it, so it's looking hopeful do you?
I'm grand thanks, how're you?
Haha, sure. I'm always down for philosophical discussion
I fell in front of everyone when on my way to an exam the other day.
Thank you for the rep, kind sir.
I love Aromatic too! Especially all the electrophilic substitution reactions! I remember pushing arrows at A Level thinking ????? but it's just so natural now. The long answer questions are good to get your teeth into. Within aromatic this year we did a lecture on activation/deactivation, i.e. will something react faster/slower than benzene. Was really cool (such a nerd I know!) and particularly defining whether something is aromatic. Cyclic, odd, uninterrupted and planar... you can tell I really do love Chem! I'm sure you will enjoy your University studies
Chemistry is good! I'm more interested in BioChem to be fair, I'm not really a PhysChem girl, I really struggle with thermodynamics and calculus in general! I've learnt how to use my calculator in a way I never would've thought! Are you studying Chemistry?
Hey, thanks for the welcome! It depends on your age and how seriously you want to take it, as there will probably be options for you at any level you wish to choose.
When I started training seriously age ~13, I was doing 4 sessions a week, and this increased steadily until I was doing 8 sessions a week (I was, however, competing at a national level and trialling for the GB junior rowing team at this point so I can definitely understand that it seems excessive!). When I came to university I joined the senior squad because I had rowed at a high level before and so I was asked to do 12-13 sessions a week (twice a day with fridays off). I managed this for one semester but found it to be too much so quit last semester, but the novice rowers were pretty much free to train as much as they pleased whilst obviously knowing that the more they put in, the more likely they would be to make the better crews. Some people found they loved it and jumped into training 6-8 so sessions per week, whereas others were happy to come down at the weekend to have a more recreational row with their mates.
In terms of what the training consisted of, at the senior level there were lots of rowing machine sessions and weights, with ~5 water sessions per week. The keen novices usually did a couple of "circuit training" type workouts and maybe a couple of rowing machine sessions during the week and did anywhere between 1 and 4 water sessions at the weekend, but this really varied from person to person.
I'm sorry for my delayed and muddled response but I've been busy revising for my end of year exams! Cheers.
Craig Finn, lead singer of The Hold Steady released a solo album.
My favourite album is probably Separation Sunday but they're all pretty awesome so it's difficult to choose!
Hey man, saw you on my friends list and remembered you're the guy that liked The Hold Steady! You heard Craigs solo effort? I thought it was pretty underwhelming but the good news is that THS are back in the studio this summer!
Don't believe in it
