On Sunday, Stephanie and I both were able to check something off our summer to-do list: Paddleboarding. It was a combination of fun and relaxing with a dash of I'll-keep-my-lifevest-on-for-good-measure. This "amazing full body workout" as proclaimed online was not nearly as difficult as we expected. Granted, we were on Green Lake (no wakes) and would paddle out to the middle, sit on our boards to chat, drift a little, repeat - so we weren't exactly pushing ourselves to the limit.
We did, however, try the earthquake test where we shook the board back and forth to see if we can keep our balance AND I attempted a few yoga positions (paddleboarding yoga is a new craze). Were we just trying to fall in, you might ask? Not exactly, but I don't think we'd be too upset if we had since the weather was absolutely GORGEOUS yesterday.
So now we're pretty much professionals. Pretty soon we'll be gracing the covers of Standup Paddle Magazine. And don't be surprised if you see us at the next National Paddleboard Championship Tour! Ok, gotta go sign some autographs now.
