Update from Austin

Can't believe we just finished our 7th week of training here in Austin and Olympic Trials are just a few weeks away. Hoping to write a bigger update soon, but for now here are a couple of vids of training from the last week. 

The first is of a 8 x 2k steady state workout with Mary Jones and Emily Schmieg, where we are shifting rates from 16-22 spm. In this clip, I am cruising at 22 and trying to keep the boat running flat while drawing the stern to me with my hamstrings. 

The second clip is of a very challenging 20's and 30's workout going from 28 up to 36 spm. I am focusing on letting the legs dominate the drive and keeping that black bow of the LW2x away from me! 

Overall, it's been awesome down here and I have especially enjoyed training with Dave O'Neill out of the UT boathouse. It's been so helpful feeding off the energy of a college team and having Dave around to keep the focus high and the main thing the main thing.

That's all for now, but more to come as things start to ramp up into Olympic Trials. Let's go!
