Cygnet Weekly update

13th December 2016

Firstly congratulations to Tim for his win in British Rowing Indoor Champs on Saturday in the mens 40-49 light weight category in 6 mins 23 a full 16 seconds ahead of second place. So that sets the standard for the Cygnet 2k test on Saturday morning. Common, guys we like a challenge! Good to see that Cygnet traditions were upheld at the Barnes Bridge Ladies Christmas Ball on Saturday night and the club bar still in use at 3am. Thanks to Tim for giving us a lie in and recovery outing on Sunday.

So yes it's a 2k ergo test on Saturday, target is to improve by 2 secs on your previous time, maybe a quiet Friday night would be good preparation rather than another 3am in the bar.

This week:

7:15pm Cavendish School - Maxi Circuits - last session before Christmas, tone the abs for your work Christmas Party.

7pm Club Run 7k easy/7k hard non runners Non runners 7 x 5' squats/1' rest Rate 27

7pm Squad Ergo
Full race warm up 4 x 500m @ 2k pace 2' rest 20' cool down

2k Ergo Test, first group at 10am (warm up times and schedule to be sent later)
Second session ergo team relay

Note that this is for the seniors and novice squads, there is no escape!

Squad outings - meet at 7:20, OTW at 7:45
Second outing: Boating by 10 to get to the Pink House in for a side-by-side piece back to the club. Crews to be announced one we have the last couple to make up the boats.

Sunday's outings will be followed by mulled wine and minced pies at the club.

Have a good week,
