It was an overcast day, but the conditions on the water were perfect for rowing - completely flat water. After 3 sets of the prescribed warm-up, we began the on-water portion of training.

Our 4- crew was rowing together for the first time, and despite some timing difficulties in the first half of the first lap, our balance was reasonably good. We continued to improve in both timing and balance in the subsequent laps. The most challenging portion was the power discrepancy between stroke and bow sides, so we spent a lot of time correcting our course by increasing power on stroke side. I found it difficult to maintain a low stroke rating at first, mainly due to the attempt to compensate for the strength difference between the two sides. With the helpful reminders of my teammates, I think I was better able to keep a lower rating as practice went on. Kamei san guided us in our exercises from bow.

The divers were still there, but I think we’re all getting used to them now. All crews completed four laps of the course. It was an enjoyable day.

One more note: Ooguchi san encouraged me to sit in the single scull for the first time after Helene returned to the dock. It was a good experience, and I’m grateful for a team that has given me the opportunity to grow in my time here.
