Êtes-vous Prêt?

All mariners know that when you are in a boat facing the bow, the port side is on your left, starboard on the right.

If however, you are a rower, an oarsperson, you may have spent a considerable amount of … the rest “Êtes-vous Prêt?”


Well, it’s 5:06 PM here in Kansas City and I just completed my morning workout session. 93º Not skippy.


I just completed my slowest 20 min. on the rowing machine in as long as I can remember. So sore. I guess the key word is ‘completed.’


A C2 row and a walk. Another C2 row and a walk coming up. Listening to Stanton Moore bring that funky New Orleans drumming.


Two rows, two walks, some good reading, Steinbeck, McPhee, and Waugh all got some of my attention today. Stevie Wonder, Semisonic, Matthew Sweet some of the listening.

I started intermittent fasting today. Late day meal only. We shall see.


Completed a 40min. row. No music. Just the drone of the flywheel and the afternoon sun shining on me through the window.
