We've been rowing with a fairly jumbled crew this week, because half of last term's first VIII are off skiing, jammy sods! So we've got ex-blues triallists rowing with just-ex-novices like myself, which has been an interesting experience! There was a definite improvement from Monday to today, although there were some very tough moments, especially with the weather on Tuesday and Wednesday - trying to get a IV back home rowing in pairs at light pressure - it just wasn't
going to happen!
And we were lying on our backs to stretch our hamstrings, as any good medic/gym freak should know
. Not as embarassing that time as earlier in the week though, when one of your womens' boats came past as we were all "poncing" up and down the hard
(or was it chicken walking, I can't remember!) I think I've hurt my lats though (see, use of gym freak term!
) or at least, something in that area hurts.
Yep, that seems to be what they're (ACE inhibitors) for. My Mummy's just been put on them, so I'm explaining to her what they do.
