So my one of my new years resolutions was to stop taking days off work to go kayaking…but like all of my other new years resolutions.. I didn’t stick to it for very long!!

So today despite having loads of work to do, I took the whole day off to go kayaking…..again!!!

There was snow on the Wicklow gap as I headed to Laragh this morning. The gap looked stunning with white mountains on all sides and the sun peeping through the clouds. We had a great day on the Annamoe (once we got over the reheats in our hands brrrr) followed by a spin to Glenmalure to paddle the Avonbeg. We managed to find a nice little spot to work on boofing and it was one of those days when I was just happy to be paddling the river with a great crew practicing little bits of technique and feeling very mellow indeed. Thanks Dave, Laura and Dan 🙂 Also had very little problems with dead legs today. That’s the yoga I’ve been doing paying off. It’s the most amazing activity for flexibility and loosening up.

So now it’s back to work for me for the evening…I wonder if there will be any water tomorrow!! Teaching Kayaking in the pool tomorrow night and a group in the afternoon too but there’s always the morning!! 🙂
