Home again and class starts tomorrow

Home again. Yay.

And off to bed now, because tomorrow morning we have to go teach two rowing classes in a row. It would be three, but they canceled the Advanced class, because not enough people signed up. This is good in a way, because now we get to sleep in on weekends and show up at 7AM instead of 5AM, but bad because we had lots of ideas about how to teach them

Its the first session for both classes tomorrow. Well start teaching the Intermediates some techniques that will eventually let them all row together, instead of only 2 or 4 at a time. The Beginners have their float test, as well as the Safety Lecture and the scare-them-off talk so that they dont complaining later when they realizing were actually making them sweat, and expecting them to listen to what we say. This is important; water can kill you and so can rowing shells (the bow end has a sharp point; I have heard of at least one person who has died by impalement) so listening to the coach is crucial.

It probably also works better if the coach is awake. Good night.
