A week before the Games

Before the Olympic Games begin, I wanted to “put pen to paper” one last time (sounds better than “type on my keyboard”). We are a week away from our first race and I am ready to go. However, I would like to stop the clock. These last moments are intense. Intense on the water with some speed work to sharpen our blades. But it is also intense in terms of team, human interactions, crew spirit and life experience.

Over 17 years of rowing, I can say that I haven’t been injured a lot. I won’t talk about my back problem here but more about the “lack of recovery” type of injury. I have missed very few sessions overall. I strongly believe that it is partly due to my diet. Some people might say that I don’t eat the right way. Fair enough. I am not fancy in terms of gluten, vegan or 100% organic.
