Traning Camp in Racice with Swedish National Team - Back to the cold

2015-04-05

Usually I don´t mind the cold. I can find it motivating to train in harsh conditions because it makes me feel tougher than my competitors. 

During this training camp the weather has been particulary brutal. Rain, snow, cold temperatures and very tough wind conditions. It puts all of us to the test. 

What I like during this training camp is that everyone has helped each other out. When athletes are done with their session, rahter to run indoors for much needed warmth they will make sure that anyone else needs help. It makes me feel proud to be a Swedish rower. This is also very good since the harsh winds makes it difficult to carry a rowing shell by yourself, even for the most experienced rowers.

Finally, it looks like better conditions coming up.
