Yeh, the ones on the palms of your hands are horrid, they're always so tender and it means you can't:
a) shake hands with people
b) hold onto anything
c) wave to anybody, as they think you have some sort of disease
d) touch yourself
The sacrifices we make eh??
lol, cheers Helenia. No wonder he's catching crabs in a 13.
First night girl caught a crab, thrown out of boat, hithead on oar, went down, hit head on stern, went down, hit head on bumping boat's bow. Ow.
Q: I've possibly been rowing on one side too much, but after long sessions my lower-back muscles really ache a lot. How can I relieve/prevent this?
God knows. I took a week off and mine still hurts. Not to mention the thong burn from seat falling off incident.
Masses of photos of me rowing indicate I hunch up going up the slide, so methinks may be summink to do with it.
Make sure your back is bolt upright, it should be so straight that it'll hurt mid-upper back at first, until you get used to it.
Next term, I'm going to row semi-seriously as well as cox.
WTF have I let myself in for...?
I was told that boatying would suck me in. It has.
Although on the other hand, I'm learning to sail so can go fast with less effort.
