After a long hiatus, here is a blog post.
We had our first fit test of the 2017-2018 season a couple Thursdays ago at A4A. It was really more of a baseline test, as none of our subsequent tests will resemble it in any way. The point was to give our recruits (and vets) a general idea of where they stand compared to everybody else and to see what they might need to work or focus on.
As anybody who has followed this blog knows, I have largely fallen off the posting bandwagon and only post sporadically with large gaps in between. I took a brief hiatus from posting as it was getting to be a chore, but it’s become enjoyable again so I may return to posting. It will probably not be regular and I mayn’t post as much as I’d like, but I’ll still probably post more often than I have been in the last few months.
Adrian, Edmond, and Sangah had requested that I inform them when I post, and so I would like to acknowledge these three people as fans. It’s nice to hear that people like my posts and that fact motivates me to write more, so thanks for the encouragement!
P.S. Adrian told me he expected a post yesterday after practice and I told him that wasn’t going to happen. That statement was accurate.
My blogging has fallen shamelessly off the bandwagon and was stressing me out because I felt pressured to post when I was feeling lazy so I have decided to only post sporadically when I feel like it and thus not have to feel guilty about neglecting it.
I felt like today warranted a post and I’m going to write it right away so I don’t procrastinate and then forget about it and then never ending up actually posting it.
Today we had our final off-season fit test before the water season starts!
Well, it was, anyway. A while ago. I’m late, I know. I told Edmond I’d have this post done by January and, well, it’s February 12th now. Sorry, Edmond.
That line is pretty much the only one I know from whatever song those lyrics are from.
It’s past the end of the holiday season, which is very sad because now it’s time to go back to real life, but it was nice while it lasted. Lots of time off, seeing friends and family…
Aaand free food, presents, and parties!
So many events, so little time. I’ll post the last episode of the World Cup series at some point, I promise.
Here is the first post of 2017 (which was supposed to be the last post of 2016, but we all know by now how slow I am at posting).
Chapter 2: Rainchina.
I’m sensing a theme here. Just sayin’.
Chapter 1: Raincouver.
Rainy. Wet. Rainy. Cold. Rainy. Dark. And rainy.
I’ve had a fairly long semi-hiatus from paddling and am just coming back to it now. Out of the past 4 weeks, I’ve been out of paddling for 3 of them. One was due to our week off after TIDBRF, one due to the Gordon conference, and one due to my vacation in Montreal between Montreal Challenge and Andy’s wedding.
I’m not all that sure it’s good to be back…
