Despite drinking an entire bottle of dilute e-load and half a bottle of water, I still weighed in 1.1kg lighter post row than pre-row. It was 22 degrees Celsius at 7am, and the heat only rose exponentially. Tomorrow the temperature is going to skyrocket with a piping 34 degrees (it is supposed to feel like 45 with the humidity). Bring it on Sun! I've got my SPF 30, light t-shirt, frozen water bottle and sun hat. Every time I find myself complaining about "not doing well in the heat" I remind myself that I may one day race in this.
As for whether or not we are going to worlds in the 4-, we are still waiting for the official press release on the Rowing Canada website. It should be up any day now.
