Summer is a great time to try out exercise-type stuff you don’t get to do during the season. So do some new things; try bikram, bike or hike up a mountain, get a membership at your pool, do a marathon or half-marathon (or quarter marathon - bay to breakers tomorrow!).
Get inspired and give yourself the chance to remember that you love working out - crew is great but sometimes having a break is too.
Congrats and good luck to everyone going to nationals :)
healthy-new-me asked: Hey! So I'm in Guatemala at the moment, and the gym I'm at has no erg... Do you have any suggestions since I want to try out for crew again in the fall?
Run a lot, and push yourself like you would on the erg. Whatever machines or weights your gym has, figure how to use them safely, and do so whenever you can. Don’t overtrain if you haven’t worked out in a bit, but dedicate as much time as you would if you had practice.

that’s very nice of them :)
Anonymous asked: i will be the food coordinator for my daughters team next year and it seems the food this years parents provide now is going to waste. what are some sure fire eats before/after a race?
the #1 thing the parents for my team make are graham crackers with peanut butter and bananas. they’re delicious and relatively healthy so they get eaten like crazy.
we also barbecue, so if anyone has a portable grill that’s a good idea for both rowers and families.
chocolate milk is a really good idea, and/or gatorade because it’s yummy and refills your sugar after a race. looots of water bottles.
uhh… bagels, fruit and protein/granola bars are also good. that’s all i can think of at the moment, hope it helps :)
Anonymous asked: I feel like all of us who are going to South West regionals and have Tumblr's should just meet up
That would be awesome! Maybe we could just have a spot and a few times/day to be there?
What are some good gift ideas for the seniors (and captains) on the team??
(for the future please put questions in the ask box, thanks!)
Senior sweatshirts are always a good idea, you can do a lot of different things with that.
Plaques, blades with their names or s/t, personalized t-shirts or tank tops, etc
Think of what you would do for a boat gift and then like, build on that.
Hope this helps,
