The most phisically demanding sport, you will ever encounter. It's hard, exhausting and makes you feel like you want to collapse. Rowers get up every morning at 6 to go out in the freezing cold weather to row with there 'pogies'. Even in 12 degree weather, they walk around in a one piece lycra and a spandex top. During winter training, rowers train inside doing runs, circuits, weights and ergos which normally consist of 2k, 5k and the dreaded 30 minutes. 30 minutes are dread awful. It's hard to describe the pain of 30 minutes but most rowers are crying by halfway. Rowing is the greatest dport ever. Admit it. It's true.
"Hey I'm going rowing after this."
"In this weather? It's raining!"
"Hey, don't worry, I've got my full lycra and spandex kit to keep me toasty warm" ;)
It's awful. It's tiring - exhausting actually. It's hard - one of the hardest things you will ever attempt to do. It's mind numbing -there's so many things you have to think about. It's painful - have you seen a sculler's hands?? Well, you don't want to hold them. Bleh. It's scary - seriousley the thought of falling in to a river full of currents, rats and who knows what would scare the s*** out of any 13yr old child!!!! But for some reason, thousands of people do it across the UK. Some people question the appeal but well, no Sculler or Rowing can explain why the stick with it. I guess you could say, after sculling 10km, you feel pretty damn good! :D !! It's like Rowing but instead of each crew member holding one blade/oar, each 'Sculler' holds two. People say Rowing is harder but once you've learned to 'Scull', you can easily convert to Rowing but if you learnt to Row first, it's like starting from scratch to begin Sculling. Also in sculling, you can have one person in a boat but you can't in rowing for obvious reasons like you'd just go round in a circle!!
Person 1 "heyy, I'm going Rowing today!"
Person 2 "Rowing? That's a sport for pussys! I'm a real man. I go sculling."
Person 1 (silence)
Person 2 "That's what I thought, dude!"
