Tuesday Edition Video Of The Week: Putting Hay in the Barn with the Vikes
This week's video comes to us from the University of Victoria, and features the Vikes on their August training camp, already starting to build a base for the 2013-2014 season. Throw in a solid soundtrack, and you might just be inspired to throw down a few meters (or metres) yourself, be it on the erg, in the single, on the bike, or even on the track.
Like the Vikes, we too are already looking forward to a new season (the Head Of The Charles is now just 39 days away), but we're also still decompressing from what was an outstanding summer of international racing, especially for the U.S. men and women. So, as we start to gear up for the next go round, we'll also be reflecting on the last year with our third annual RoRy Awards—the most sought-after, highly-prized, and distinguished awards in the rowing world (in our opinion, at least). Stay tuned for more on that this week.
In the meantime, send us your favorite workout jams for a new erg(o) playlist to get you started on the path to 2014. Email us links to YouTube videos or SoundCloud posts and we'll compile our top picks into a list of tunes that'll be sure to help you rack up a few extra steady state meters this fall.
