|I managed to injure half my squad on day 1 ...|
Hopefully tomorrow will go better.

|3 of my squad are now injured. I was only doing technical paddling! Does their injury resistance increase over time spent training?|

|I think a bad outing is more likely to result in injuries.|
Tried again with another e-mail address, and this time got no injuries, 3 good outings and one sulking git who doesn't want to row tomorrow after I binned him for outing no.3

|AAARGH how dare you post that! I have computing practicals to be handed in on Friday!|
*very* addictive... although the coaches seem to be contradicting themselves quite a bit. And my six-man injured himself after one technical outing :o(

|The Australian sports mentality is clearly rubbing off on me - I'm in 11th overall after day one!|
(and I particularly like that one of my squad holds the record for crossing the Atlantic - will have to beat him!)

|The 10th fittest (had quite a lot of injuries though) - 7 hours training so far - anyone see similarities with my training style!|

|somehow I'm top of the overall players!|

|It's all gone pear-shaped now, half my final 8 are injured|

|call me naive, but I'm sure that after each outing half the real blue boat doesn't get injured, and then miraculously recover overnight... :p|

|by I beat Oxford! - Sat 26th Mar 2005, 11:22am|
Your time was 16 minutes and 15 seconds - congratulations!
The course record has gone! Incredible!
Yay! I beat Oxford! They were only ahead for about 5 strokes off the start but my crew were clearly much fitter (as Cambridge rowers are ;o) ) and won by miles (possibly literally... it went from "five lengths - a huge margin" to "a very large distance indeed" to "a phenomenal margin" to "an enormous margin" and finally "a terrific margin and with huge amounts of confidence as the finish line approaches")
Here's to a similar victory tomorrow! (and for the women and lightweights today :oD Does anyone know if I can watch/listen to the Henley races on the internet??)

|"Cambridge are leading by an insurmountable distance!" - go me! :)|
Course record smashed - 15mins 55 secs.
|by 4 lengths off the start - Sat 26th Mar 2005, 6:41pm|
Cambridge are leading by a distance that shows the gulf in class between these two boats.

|But that was with a missed day of training. At least I won.|
|by Richard - Sat 26th Mar 2005, 8:27pm|
|16m 36s. Oxford no where to be seen.|
Pity about (most of) the Henley Races, seems only Alla won with CUW.
