My blisters are coming back. The pain in my lower back is more manageable, so I figured it's about time to return to rowing, or at least it's red-headed stepson, erging. I started small, but I've been increasing the amount weekly. I figure I'll finish this week rowing 20 minutes three times a week, and then I'll try to bring it up to five and see how it feels. That coincides well with finals.

So it's time. Time to commit myself to something bigger, to the team. An eight cannot go fast without all eight people working in unison, but I must prepare myself to rise to the expectations of the group. And I will. By September, I will be back to the point where I can take a 6K test and be within 2 split seconds of my PR. I will be able to lift and stretch at least as far as I could last year. Time to bring it back.
