Maggie and I saw some improvement during the second world cup with a silver medal in the K2 1000m . Our 500m races were extremely competitive putting us in the mix for that event we finished off in 12th place again but we made some good improvements on the water during the races and posted times that were competitive in the A-final. Apparently the next step to bring our performances up to the next level is experience!!!!!! patience... patience.... patience.

Saturday was a great day for the K2 we had solid races from the get go. As always there are many things which we can improve on but it was a good day. In the 1000m K2 race Maggie and I managed to put in a solid 250m sprint at the end of the race to edge out the Slovaks and almost take down the World champs for a Bronze in the K2 1000m. Know one can say the race was not competitive in the 1000m because  more then 5 people in the race who were world champions. The 500m races were tough but we managed to be right in the mix. Our races were decide in the hundredth of a second verses seconds which was rough but good at the same time because it meant we were truly competitive with the best in the world!  Now off to race the B-final with awesome form and speed.

Collegiate Champs to Poland in 24hrs

      Collegiate sprint championships were held this past Saturday on the Oklahoma River at the Boathouse district. OCU finished off the day winning the overall title and myself and Cedric winning the overall athlete titles. It was a lot of fun even though we crammed in 7 races each for the day. The event was run in conjunction with the central youth rowing regatta which at times made life very interesting. At one point a novice male had fallen in to the water and was still in the middle of the course as a varsity mens 8 was bearing down on the finish line and the poor guy!
     The very next day I was on a plane to Poznan, Poland for the first world cup.

Blah my brain and body have crashed after 1.5weeks of hard training combined with finals, and oh yeah team trials....writing all that down makes me tired. But Maggie and I will keep pushing through it in the K2 making sure to put the time in the boat to good use whether we feel good or not. There is always something we can take away from the work out, even if its something as simple as we need to relax our makes a difference.
