aah, I've just started trying rowing and coxing in these least couple of weeks; both are so much harder than they look, especially rowing! And what's with the 6 am starts; ok, I know some people have lectures at nine, but we could at least go out at 7, then that wouldn't mean getting up in the middle of the night.
My coxing today was pretty crap; I somehow managed to crash the 8 man boat into a tree (I know what you're thinking; they're aren't many trees in the middle of the river cam; but it really came out of nowhere), trying to avoid hitting a duck.
I also don't know the meaning of half the stuff I'm instructed to say 'all crew feather tight paddling, low pressure', etc; what the hell does it mean?
But yeah, apart from all of that, good fun
