Nottingham on Camp

Nottingham on Camp

Whilst other clubs were abroad in sunny climates for their training camps, Pippa was invited to the under 23 land based training camp in Cardiff, whilst Yasmin and Lindsay both went away for some ‘altitude training’ on the ski slopes.  The rest of the squad stayed in Nottingham for their training camp, making the most of the unseasonably warm weather and home comforts.

The Nottingham camp was a 10 day high volume camp, with a lot of erg training thrown into the mix to prepare us for the forthcoming 5km erg test to be completed before the next water trial. Catherine made a welcome return to the water after a long few months of injury and training on the Wattbike, whilst Louise also returned to full training after a period of illness. Everyone coped well with the increased volume of training, and most managed to battle their way through to the final day of camp – finished off with an 18k erg.

The New Year has started well for the group, and we are now looking ahead to the February water trial, our last chance to impress on the water in the GB open trials. Following that we will switch our singles for an 8 in preparation for the Women’s Eights Head of the River Race in March, where we aim to defend our Senior pennant.
