The mind and body was ready… but the paddle had to be postponed.
Training for any challenge, race or event is hard enough, as most people know that goal date or race date is crucial in terms of the physical and mental preparation.
When devising any fitness based program aiming to peak for a specific event you actually have to work in reverse. Starting with the event date and developing an appropriate training block that will see you fighting fit for ‘go time’. Due to my paddle date changing this has had a drastic impact on me both mentally and physically. While I have a solid base of training done and consistently maintained, the mental fatigue and further consumption of my life regarding all things paddle is indescribable.
New proposed paddle dates have been uploaded to the itinerary link on the home page, as long as there is a 100% reliable support team on both road and water things should be moving ahead positively!
