Hi Karen,

Thanks for this post. A lot of helpful information, as always. I really appreciate the way you balance guidelines for proper technique with differences between rowers, such as distinguishing between rowers who like to have their blades closer to the water than others, or, as you've said in your posts on the grip, the fact that only some people are able to roll their blades up square with just their fingers. It all helps me be more accepting of the fact that just because my technique isn't quite textbook perfect, it doesn't necessarily mean I'm doing something wrong. I also appreciate the reminder that every stroke is different. I guess the goal is to maintain consistency from stroke to stroke.

I've been working on my finish the last couple of weeks on the water, giving special attention to how it can help me maintain the set of my boat. I'm wondering if you have any thoughts on the "feet out" drill and if you have any advice on incorporating that into one's drill repertoire.

Thanks again. Looking forward to your next post.
