I was able to test out my kayak this weekend. The husband had been saying that he was going to come with me to make sure I was ok. I swear he is getting anxiety when it comes to me. He doesn’t want to let me out of his sight. Even going to work has him worried and then I spent the weekend protesting and kayaking. He decided at the last minute that I would probably be fine and let me go on my own.
I went to a local reservoir that I knew had an easy place to get into the water. There were loads of other kayakers there. I decided to treat this trip as sort of a proof of concept trial – Can I get the kayak to the water without it falling off the truck? Does the kayak float? Can I manage to float around without capsizing?
So far so good.
I went for a quick spin around a little cove and then left. I was starting to feel it in my abs. I’m such a wimp!
Now I know that I can do everything I need to do. Next time I’ll be going for longer!
