Base Canoe

Today's workout:  4 mile Canoe on the Hillsborough River.  Did the same thing last year, but not with the foreboding B2B 25-mile canoe leg on the horizon.  Averaged 2 miles per hour today.  Took it waaaaay easy.  Call it a "base" canoe workout.  

Ol' Excel Man actually took his heart-rate monitor with him on this trip.  Sure, the Garmin is bad enough.  But he actually wore his Polar as well.  I was seriously out-teched today.  I gotta get a carbon-fiber paddle or something....

I *really* like the idea of a base canoe workout!

Yes, me too - you are going to have a good time training for that race!

"Base Canoe" - that's funny.

Are you guys going to do speed work in kayaks?

Good Luck with the race. Sounds like a blast!

Base Canoe?



Isn't that like pacing yourself with beer during a long party?


Haaaaa!

Base Canoe. Funny stuff.

I'm just going to bask in the glow of out-teching you. It doesn't happen very often!
