Life off the river: lockdown cross training for rowers

Award-winning blogger and journalist, Patricia Carswell, shares her latest rowing adventures in her exclusive British Rowing blog – Life on the river

I don’t know about you, but I’m finding Lockdown 2.0 harder than the first one. There’s none of that jolly, communal, Tiger-King-and-Zoom-cocktails vibe of Lockdown #1, and the relentlessness of it all is starting to grate.

But I’m determined that being forced off the river isn’t going to be an excuse to give up and get fat on banana bread and sourdough (which, let’s face it, is just so last lockdown). I’ve resolved to use this month to consolidate my fitness, so I return to rowing in better shape than when I left it.
