At the beginning of this year I set some goals for this year’s kayaking season (see 2011: Post 1). They were:
1) Do more day paddles than the previous year
2) Paddle 750 kilometers total in day paddles
3) Spend at least 100 times in my kayaks; this includes pond practice, St. Philips practices, pool sessions, paddles, etc…
4) Do at least three camping trips
Yesterday was the half-way point for 2011 and today I checked my progress against last year. By June 30, 2010 my stats were: 19 paddles covering 327 kilometers, and I had a total of 58 times in my kayaks.
Up to yesterday my progress has been: 16 paddles covering 335 kilometers, one camping trip, and a total of 45 times in my kayaks.
As compared to last year at the end of June, I am a little behind. I hope that July and August will be kind to me and that I can make up some ground toward reaching some of my kayaking goals for 2011.
