Paddling is fun to try

Friday, October 25, 2013

It's been a month I tried Paddling for the first time. Just froze for first 15 mins in kayak, as I was very afraid to paddle. I tensed up and sat there for ages. Slowly I pulled guts and started to push and paddle. I was stuck near a rock in 5 mins. Not sure I can come out without getting hurt. After 5 mins, a couple helped me out. Then I realized I need to loosen up and get ride of my unnecessary fear.

I slowly paddled along. I will stop few seconds and paddle again. I couldn't paddle continuously as it's upstream. I need to build my stamina. Slowly I'm getting tired but was out of fear and had fun paddling.

After some rest paddled back downstream. It seemed little easy and i thoroughly enjoyed. Want to try it again this year. Wish we can get little sun over the weekend....
