Happy New Year from Cygnet RC

3rd January 2017

Hi All,

Hope you had a great Christmas and a raring to get back on the river training hard for the head races over the next three months. We are all getting fitter and stronger as shown by then number of people setting PBs in the pre Christmas 2k test. This sets us up for more water time and longer outings over the coming weeks. Head of the River is on the 25th March and Vets Head on the 26th, now is the time to commit to racing and doing the training. I'll be canvasing the squad to see who wants to race but it would be great to get a senior, development, novice and vets crews out over the weekend .

An innovation from Tim, we will be holding a training weekend at Dorney Lake on the 14th/15th January with seat racing in 4s and small boats over 1500m. It will be great to have a change of scene and to race each other down the Olympic Regatta course. More details for follow about the logistics, but please make every effort to be there, and mark you availability for it on the speadsheet.

So, the plan over the next couple of weeks is:

Tuesday 3rd 1000 lunges (wherever you choose to do them)

Wednesday 4th 48min club run

Thursday 5th Squad Ergo: 3 x 1k at 5k pace, 3min rest

Saturday 8th 5k Ergo test - those who did the 2k test will have a target split from Tim. We will have squad outings first thing to warm up for the test

Sunday 9th Club Time trial - lets get as many boats as we can pushing each other and getting experience rowing in a head race format.

Tuesday 10th Circuits with Maxi at 7:15 Cavendish School

Wednesday 11th 75 min club run

Thursday 12th 30 min 20 at 76% of new 2k wattage

Boat loading for Dorney

Saturday 14th Seat racing at Dorney

Sunday 15th Seat racing at Dorney

Further ahead....

Saturday 28th Jan Quintin Head

Sunday 5th March Hammersmith Head

Saturday 25th March Head of the River Race

Sunday 26th March Vets Head of the River Race

Sunday 2nd April The Boat Race

If you ordered kit, it has arrived and is in the mens changing room. Bjarne picked his up on Saturday and his rowing was transformed by looking the part!!!

Looking forward to some great rowing and racing in 2017, see you all soon,
