Well Cam and I took the first set of the season today. Cam took 15 minutes and collapsed in the cockpit. I did about that in three pulls and for some funny reason it hurts.
Let me explain........ My frgg;n hair hurts. My arms ache in in back, down low and on top. My quads and calves hurt. My abs feel like I did 200 crunches.

Normally I work the rower all winter and ski moguls. But life has gotten in the way this year and well,,,, i haven't done much except work this winter.

Big mistake. For you guys waiting for ice to melt I offer one suggestion: get your azz to the gym or on a bike or something before you take that first spring set. The older you are the more sorry youll be..
This ain't funny... i am hurting here and it's Sunday night. No Patron allowed..

I know the feeling well!

It's worth it... going to the gym and being active helps, some reason you just don't work the same muscles as you do boarding

There are perks to being young... like not hurting after a day at the lake.

yup, same for me earlier this week. didn't do much all winter and that first day on the lake put me into a lot of pain. Absolutely worth it.

I love the feeling the next morning when you roll out of bed and find all the sore spots. Its nice to be able to ride a few sets without feeling like you are going to die, but I dont complain when I feel worked the next morning. It lets me know I put yesterday's gas to good use.

Pretty tight today. I think I'll drag Cam out of school early Wednesday and go for another burn. That should loosen me up and get us geared for the three a week schedule from here on out.

But wow... ouch. I always hit the rower hard a month or so before a ski trip and I guess I had better get back on that thing. BTW, no better machine than a good rower. This thing will kick a gym rats butt no problem... hehehh.

I am definitely looking forward to my set this year, but I hate the idea of being sore for a week. I've been going to the gym all winter, but for whatever reason I still feel like an old man for a week after my first set.

Any suggestions on how to prepare your self and be less sore?

I always find it funny that the first few times out I am completely winded in no time and clost to panting if I can make a normal set length. Then by the end of the season you can ride for a lot longer. It's different muscle groups and I find they hard muscles to try and train for the pull. Beginning of the season it's always my grip that suffers....just not used to holding on to the handle.
