荒海

Kayak training in bad weather

There are two ways to interpret this picture: the first could be my attempt to do some modern art Jackson Pollock style with my kayak and Gaia GPS tracking software or the more realistic but less fun interpretation could be that I’m inexperienced and decided to kayak in very strong winds but noticing the high chance of flipping my kayak, I kayak around in a circle over 30 times to justify the 20 minute commute to the training location. Well…at least I got some training done. Check out the visual training log https://cloud.gaiagps.com/public/GOxEremkHKge7k6MtcP1Rf4A/Aerial/

最初のカヤックトレーニング

Kayaking in Japan

This was my first Kayak training (Jan 4th 2014) in preparation for the trip from Japan to Korea. Coming into this, I thought I could use my everyday athletic skills to give me an edge on this challenge. Putting this into perspective, I can bike about 80 miles so kayaking 8 miles should not be so hard, right? Wrong!! It was hard, really hard. Well… lets start this training. So, in total I did about 8.2 miles in 2 hours and 30 minutes. Here is the visual training log https://cloud.gaiagps.com/public/2xpsSRQRENACje4w2suPvDuN/Aerial/
