Exercise, train, race by kayak and canoe
About Fitness Paddling blog.
This blog will be written from a perspective of a mature paddler who after 30 years of recreational paddling (well, it was often rather intense recreation…) started to race a few years ago (2002). Who choose for his racing debut Texas Water Safari. Who is trying to train more or less regularly avoiding injuiries. Who is still improving somewhat. And who has a lot of fun from training, paddling and any other outdoor activity.
I consider myself a fitness paddler, only sometimes a racer. What is fitness paddling? Perhaps, it needs to be defined.
