Normally, stand up paddleboarding doesn't take it out of me but this weekend it was so windy that it was a battle to get anywhere. I'm experimenting with different positions to keep a low profile. Getting a hybrid (kayak/sup) paddle might be a good idea. Plus towing the trailer uphill was a full body workout. I'll consider that my strength training! Instead of feeling discouraged about not being able to do back to back workouts, I went home, ate and recharged my batteries with a good nap (90 minutes - 2 hours) then I'll have some yerba mate and green tea and am good to go for a cardio session. By then the fog has usually cleared out and the sun is shining. These long summer days are perfect for this, as it was still light out when I got home. I can head out as late as 5 o'clock and that is still plenty of time. It's like getting 2 days in one. The best part is I lost weight this weekend with all the double-duty. I've been staying on point with my diet and almost down to my weight from my last triathlon. Ironically, when I reach a plateau, I just add a few more carbs like sweet potato with dinner and the weight drops more. Let's see what next week brings.
