Hi all, I have a question regarding the Lightweight Rowing club at Oxford.
I'm currently rowing for my college and have rowed in total for about a year and a half. Id really like to join the lightweights at some point - but was wondering what their training schedule is like?
I've heard they train 6 days a week once in the morning (6am-8am) and all afternoon (1pm-6pm) is this true? If yes, how do students manage this? You'd basically have to take off your entire afternoon (and possibly part of your evening as well if you include travel time back from Wallingford). How do medics do it on hospital attachments?? DPhil students with experiments in the afternoon? Do they all just skip them to row?
I'd be grateful for any insight into this. Thanks!
Over the Easter break
