      Yup more training. felt really good today. I'm figuring out how much water and calories/sugar/fat to take a hour. so my body can cope with a 700+k paddle.

      playing around with recipes. is always fun.

      Fitness

      First paddle after pulling my abdominal oblique muscle (couple weeks ago). Which is a common injury among paddlers and absolutely painful. I thought pulling a groin was bad, that is nothing compared to this.

      Muscle is still not healed takes up to 6 weeks while avoiding anything that can set it off again. (basically: the less time you let it heal = the longer it takes to heal).

      Which sucks because I have a huge race in less then 2 weeks! (www.chattajack.com). I went from training to compete, to even wondering if I can complete it.

      How to remedy this you ask? Well for 1. My mental game is shot. 2. My fitness took a beating. 3. Also will doing this event make my injury worse (longer recovery, or doing some major damage, which could result in possible surgery).

      Well I'm going to go for it, but I have to solve some issue first:

      1. I'm not even going to use my race board till the event. I'm going to train on the biggest slowest board I have. Why? I want my mental game at its lowest before I start the race. That way and I hope this works. When I get on my race board. I will have the impression that it's going faster then the board I have been training on and i will trick my brain into thinking positive. Which if all goes well I will be able to push past that mental hurdle of defeat.

      2. Fitness is going to be rough. I'm now training to have a set pace with shorter sprints and less sprints. If I can maintain a constant slower pace I should be able to at least finish the race. I know the speed at which I can travel and the distance I can cover; but now I have to think of a steady pace. Oh and train for it in less then 2 weeks.

      3. This I dread, if all else fail and the injury gets worse before the race. I have to consider not doing the race (which sucks because I'm flying 2500 miles to do it). But I have to remember I do have a life outside of paddling and my health is critical to me making a income. (pay bills, etc). So let's hope everything works out for the best.

      Sorry Trotters bit of a read here.

      Just a lazy paddle on the Yukon River with some friends.
      Chilly days are becoming more common place in the Yukon. So we decided to have a Soak at the local hot springs. www.tahkinihotsprings.com.

      I was running a work shop to introduce people to paddling in cold weather. Which I called Cool Weather Paddling. I have had a turn out between 3-6 people through out the month. I run the workshop every Thursday. The day was perfect flat water and no wind. Which made the class very happy. to finish it out we have a nice camp fire. Where the group would soak marshmallows in Baileys Liquor and toasted the marshmallows on a fire. Was pretty tastie. (I could only have one, because I was driving).
      cheers Trotters.
