It was nice to get back to my home town of Taumarunui and paddle on the Whanganui and Ongarue rivers over the weekend. I have always found paddling up the rapids a great way to get some good up tempo training done while really working on the feel and timing of the catch.
Training has been progressing well and I am looking forward to racing my first proper regatta for nearly 18 months in Australia in two weeks time. We will race the annual GP2 regatta at the Penrith international regatta course. The blue lakes regatta didnt happen for me as I had some tendon niggles and decided it was best pull out of the racing for the sake of the bigger picture.
