Bernie and I just signed up for six months at the little rowing club down at the boathouse on the river. This morning was our first sculling class - this meant getting up way too early for my delicate constitution, but it turned out to be pretty fun, anyway. It was about two hours long, during which Alvin (the manager or something of the setup down there) ran us through how to get the oars and the shells set up, went through all the safety stuff (we don't need to wear lifejackets, because the boats themselves are considered flotation devices. woo!) and gave us the quickstart on how to row properly. We only spent about fifteen minutes out on the river, but that first hour and a half or so probably saved us at least that much time of pulling our sorry asses out of the water. Now, let's see how often we can manage to get out of bed early enough to do this on a regular basis.
Also, Maudie's rules. That is all.(March 30, 2005 06:52 PM)
