It is Back!!!! Hug a Llama Day is Thursday.

After a multi year hiatus due to COVID our annual holiday event Hug A Llama Day is back. Mark Thursday on your calendar and come prepared to train.

Today we are doing 4 x 10 minutes with 2 minutes rest. SPM is a two minute cycle 20 22 24 26 28

Thursday though is our big event. We will be breaking into teams of experienced athletes and novices and racing against each other. However, everyone needs to also come prepared with three (3) facts about llamas. You may be challenged on your knowledge of llamas and a lack of knowledge about llamas will result in a time penalty.

Extra bonus time points to anyone that comes dressed as a llama, brings a llama facsimile (such as stuffed toy), or a hand drawn picture of a llama. You can also get bonus points if you share your 3 llama facts with someone outside of the rowing program. Just need to prove that you did it.

Prizes to the top three teams.

I really need to see everyone at practice on Thursday. We need to get our training more consistent and the novices need to start learning from the experienced athletes.

There is limited training time between now and the Christmas break. When we are back from the break we will be ratcheting up the training frequency and intensity. That combined with the indoor racing season gives us opportunities for getting faster.

Onward Llama glama!!!
