Rocking the Boat

Today I managed to make contact with Bret King from Longridge Outdoor Centre. He has kindly agreed to find some time to teach me the noble art of rowing.

I am, however, on holiday from next Thursday to the following Tuesday, at the Download Festival. My training will, therefore, have to wait until I have finished drinking, fighting and ruining my hearing.

When I meet up with him, Bret will also introduce me to another fantastic man called Chris, who will teach me how to Sprint Kayak. From what I can tell, this is like kayaking, but faster and much more painful. Nevertheless, I’m very excited about both water sports, as I have been somewhat held up recently by a couple of injuries, which turned into weaknesses.

Now I’m getting my strength back, it’ll be nice to get a couple more sports under my belt. I still need to get assessed in boxing and wrestling, to pass the Gold Challenge element of the sports. Luckily, everybody has been really helpful, so I can’t see why this will be problematic.
