For departing Team Captains Tiongson and Go, bagging medals in their last year as rowers was a fitting end to their long, arduous journeys with the team. However, prior to their success this year, the pair admitted that they once believed that a medal finish was out of reach for the team.
Despite this, the team slowly grew over time, churning out one tough performance after another, all in pursuit of the elusive medal. Knowing that the training standards, discipline, and tenacity of the team has grown exponentially over the years, the captains believe that the team they will leave behind is truly ready for future success. In another quest for silverware, the Ateneo Rowing Team found themselves hammering through rigorous training sessions a week after returning from Malaysia.
Thus, routinely regimens are necessary in their race to success, with the team allotting time for both morning and afternoon training sessions. At around AM, the student-athletes head back to the Loyola Heights campus for a full day of classes before turning to the old walls of the Blue Eagle Gym in the afternoon for physical training. They perform a series of high-intensity cardio workouts and weight lifting methods to improve on strength and endurance. Coupled with enough rest and proper diet, ART makes certain that their members are ready and fit for harsh physical activity in the face of unpredictable nature patterns.
According to Tiongson, the overall morale of the team is running high.
The rugged training sessions are made sweeter by the promise of a better finish, and the memories of their decisive campaigns. Go also noted that their gritty performance has garnered the attention of their foreign competitors.

Would we see beyond that which holds us down, keeps us from loving people and even ourselves? If God-given desires are sweet to the soul, then diligence to pursue those desires serves as the protection to keep them from going sour.

If you neglect it, poverty, shame and despising oneself is said to follow. Regarding the pursuit of Godly desires with diligence, discipline must enter into the equation.

When our Godly desires begin to wane and when diligence to pursue them begins to weaken in favor of a shortcut, discipline can lift our attitudes, behaviors and actions back up to the path where obtaining godliness in our character is the primary goal. It is there to do a job when we need it most. It is the rod that brings us back to our senses.
