I have enjoyed having a very low key year and although I havnt been able to keep myself away from the paddling all together I have definitely been happy so sit back and watch the sprint racing rather than be part of it. Having said that last weekend I did part in the Cambridge to Hamilton kayak race which is a 22k race down the Waikato river between the two places. It was good to dust off the Evolution Edge and win the Multi-Sport category with Gordon Walker this years Coast to Coast champ in second place.
Over the weekend just been I travelled home to Taumarunui and had a very chilled out time while getting some fitness in the system. The photo is from a stunning hike we did on Saturday afternoon. Hard work after 160km on the bike in the morning but well worth it for a view like that! Dinner tasted pretty good that night too! Sunday was a mint paddle down the Whanganui river in the multi-sport boats. All in all one of the most beautiful places I have ever trained.
