Last week saw me go back to Dorney Lake for my kayaking. As I’d had coaching previously, I was able to go straight into the Olympic distances. This time I completed the 1000m, 500m and 200m one after the other – absolutely exhausting. My arm were like (cooked) spaghetti when it was all over.
My friend and photographer Jon timed me and I managed the 1000m and 200m in about 2 ½ times the world record time – not sure if that’s good or bad (or just indifferent)?
Finally, I’d just like to add a reminder that not only is Dorney Lake the Olympic venue but it’s also open to the public for rowing and canoeing/kayaking. It really is a beautiful facility so please give it a visit if you’re thinking about trying any of those sports for your Gold Challenge.
