OK folks. Kayaking White Water is not going to come easy to me. I actually cried on the river tonight, with sheer terror and annoyance at myself, and frustration at my fear. My sprained wrist hurt, but it was only an excuse… I actually wanted to chuck it all in, and climb up the bank, and walk away…..
Luckily I stayed – and I finally made it down a weir without falling in! Chuffed, but still terrified.
This isn’t coming naturally, and I’m going to have to work REALLY hard to get better. But I reckon if I made it down once without falling in, I can do it again… and again… and again. Practice huh?
