Transitioning Home

Wet from the flipping video in Sacramento

The camp is over, and we are all back at home now in Victoria.  I have taken a long hard look at the benefits of the camp and have taken time over the past few days to figure out how to implement those aspects into my daily training.  Here are how some of those have manifested:

(a) Sunday nights I make 6 protein shakes and freeze them.  They are for after each of my first rows.  Instant 30 grams of protein and a whole host of other good things makes the engine hum.  Thanks for the advice MH.

You may be wondering what I put in my protein shakes, then again you may not!  Well, in my blender I had to make 3 shakes at a time, and in each blend I put 2 bananas, 1 cup of frozen blueberries, 1.5 cups of soya milk, 1.5 cups of V8 Fusion juice, 1 cup of yogurt, 80 grams of protein, 9 tsp of Greens+ and a little flax seed oil to boot.  Mmm mmm, tastes good!

(b) I will wake up at 6 AM and eat more food ahead of my first row.

(c) I will stretch, I mean really stretch, ahead of my first row.

(d) I will arrive at my first row with 15 to 20 minutes to spare.

(e) I will shower at the boathouse as part of my recovery process.

(f) I will stretch before bed each night, I mean really stretch.

(g)  I will go to bed by 9:30 or 10 PM each night, ensuring 8 or more hours of sleep.

(h) I will drink more water, and not just during workouts.

Look out for huge improvements from this cowboy over the next few weeks and months, not only as my fitness rushes back into my body, but also as all the little things start to add up.  There are so many more little things that I would do too, if I had a little extra money to spend on them.  As my 92 year old grandmother still says, “I guess I’m still waiting for my ship to sail in!”
