I paddled last week on moving water (Stackallen Weir) for the first time since the injury and everything went well. Basic moves and surfing at first to see if there were any problems. It was great to feel the boat flowing again in the waves and not just pushing it along on flat water.
Without any incidents I was back to my usuall training spot, the S Bend, for some moving water gate work. I found this hard going on my arms as I have done no weight training since late January, the sudden change in weather was a shock too.
Next was some white water training without gates in Sluice. Again finding the bigger water hard work and feeling very rusty, I had a tough few days here. Some slight pain from the harder work but with today as a rest day I'm ready to start here again tomorrow with some gate work.
