Siri and Noah row through the pain cave. Nanook does what Nanook does best:-)
Ask anyone who has ever rowed in a regatta and they will tell you at some point during the race you will enter the pain cave. The pain cave is that dark mental place where you're certain you can't go on, you can't take another stroke, you're going to die.
Don't worry, you're not going to die. Rowing through the pain cave is a skill that can be developed. Take a deep breath and tell yourself to take another stroke...then another. You'll get through it!
Watch today's Technique Tuesday video with Coach Shane Farmer of Dark Horse Rowing on how to row through the pain cave. You can train yourself to be mentally tough and row through your discomfort. Rowing, especially interval workouts like today's, will teach you how to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. Good luck!
