I’m still here. I’d like to say that since booking my tickets to New Zealand, I’ve been busy with researching my method of local travel in that land, but that would be wishful thinking. I’ve actually been kind of busy and kind of not. I mentioned in a previous post that I had a super achy arm from the final kayaking lesson. Well that ache became more aggravated during a kickboxing session and it would appear that I have rotator cuff tendonitis. So I’ve been doing a little bit of physiotherapy to try to get this fixed as quickly as possible. Since then I haven’t been allowed to do any kayaking and sadly with the summer fading very quickly, I couldn’t kayak even if I wanted to. The rain has returned. I am admitting to being a fair-weather everything person. Fair-weather kayaker, Fair-weather hiker, Fair-weather everything. Rain literally puts a damper on things for me. Since getting my certification, I’ve only gone out kayaking once, and that was on the day of the diagnosis. I probably shouldn’t have done that. I had another kayaking session booked for the evening of the full moon last week but my friend that I was gonna go with broke her rib the week before that so kayaking was out of the question for her and I didn’t want to go by myself so I bailed on that. But all is not lost. One of my physiotherapy exercises involves mimicking the kayaking strokes so I can still practice, just not on the water. I have managed to keep up with my spinning class and Muay Thai kickboxing and even with all the training, I still managed to squeeze in a weekend in Whistler where I got a really nice light waterproof jacket. Yay! I have signed up with my original cardio kickboxing class from months before and so now I do a total of 3 days of kickboxing, though I consider the cardio kickboxing class more of a cardio class now. I don’t want to wreck my technique with my Muay Thai kickboxing. Korri has returned from Uganda so I had a session with her recently and I’m still booking personal training sessions with Faraaz as well. So busy, busy, busy. But fear not, my posts will return soon enough.
