We are in Oak Ridge, Tennessee for spring break. We had a scrimmage today with Boston University. The workout was 12 x 250, some from a start, body and finish. The rowers all performed very well and we traded wins with Boston throughout the workout in all of our boats. Good start to our season and especially beneficial to get in some racing before our 2k on Sunday with Louisville.
The rest of the week has been filled with long rows, weight lifting at a local gym, and a 4 mile run along the river. Tonight we had dinner at the Flat Water Grill, which sits at the starting line of the race course (check out our latest youtube video at the restaurant). We are starting to think of Oak Ridge as our home course this semester. We will be here for the ACC Championships in April and then again in May for the South/Central Regional Championships. It's definitely one of the best race courses in the southeast. See what row2k poll says about Oak Ridge at: http://www.row2k.com/polls/poll_archive.cfm?poll=136
