If you want to find out more about the subjects I’m dealing with rather badly in this video, there are three books I’d recommend:
Thinking Fast and Slow
This is an awesome book and well worth the read. It deals with the issues I’m waffling about in this video in proper detail and being written by an academic, cites all sorts of research to back up the theory.
The Chimp Paradox
This is a little self-helpy, but the issues it deals with can easily be re-applied to sports people.
Brain Training for Runners
This is the first book I bought on brain training and I used it when I was training to race 10k road races. Since coming back to rowing, I’ve been applying some of the same techniques to my training.
Dominic Hawes-Fairley learned to row and Magdalen College School in Oxford in the 1980’s. After bombing out of the J18 2- at the Junior National Championships in 1985, he got out of the boat and didn’t get back in until a short spell at Leicester Rowing Club in 2014. He joined Star in 2016 on moving to Bedford and in 2018 won gold in MasE4- and MasE4+ at British Rowing National Masters Championships, Gold in MasE8 at Henley Masters, Gold in MasF8 at the European Masters Regatta in Munich and E4+ in the Vets 4s Head.
