Today Niels and I went out rowing on the Dutch coast with Willemijn's brother and his rowing club. SOOOO much fun. It was a great example of the difference between strength and usable strength. In order to transfer any amount of power from my body to the oar I had to be accurate, coordinated, and have the right timing. I still have a lot to learn, but it was so much fun I don't doubt I'll be doing it again soon.
