It was discussed a short while ago what to do with coxes who were having a
bad day. Well I don't exactly have a solution, but I think I will try harder
to avoid them in future, I wasn't expecting to have to cox tonight, so I was
planning an evening in doing some decorating and I wasn't too happy to find
myself on the list to cox tonight, but never the less dragged myself down to
the club. I was coxing a noviceish eight, with two near beginners, a little
slow compared to the eight I was in last week and I didn't cox too great,
said a few things to stroke whilst covering the microphone that perhaps I
shouldn't and gave some way too complex comands and when I simplified them
sounded patronising, well right after we got back in, bow told me exactly
what she thought of me, she didn't actually manage to convey anything that
would help me improve in general but I'll definatly be making more of an
effort in future and I'll be trying not to have a bad day!
So rowers, thats how to stop your cox having a bad day, let them do it once
the let your tongue loose!
PS, just in case bow is reading this, I was pissed off, but it's a good
thing in the long term!
