Who doesn’t love new stuff? I know I certainly do. 🙂 It’s been a week of new things both activity-wise and stuff wise. I started golf lessons for the first time this week and also went kayaking for the first time this week. Kayaking is pretty darn fun but I’m not sure if I like it more than stand up paddle boarding yet. I have yet to get the board out this summer but it’s early yet. 🙂
To support said new-found hobbies my super supportive hubby bought me some new starter golf clubs and I also invested (I use the word invested because it makes it sound less frivolous) in some water sandals for kayaking and canoeing this summer.
I’m taking the golf lessons with my two boys which has been really fun. We’re all learning together! My husband already plays so he was eager to get the rest of us started. Turns out golf is super complicated. So far there just seem to be a lot of rules on how to swing the club and then also game etiquette but I’m enjoying it and think it will be a fun family activity.
I actually tried kayaking as part of a weekly paddle club my friend and I joined that started this week. It alternates between kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding every Thursday. Automatic cross training – yay! I meant to take some pictures or video of the kayaking but was nervous about the water factor. I may get braver and bring the go-pro with it’s waterproof armor at some point though.
In other news… here is this week’s video update. Tonight’s run was AWFUL! I haven’t had such a bad run in a long time. The heat and humidity also took a toll but I will be back out there tomorrow. Marathon training must go on.
