The weather here is still cold NW winds and snow, so the afternoon was spent continuing to decorate the front bedroom. I was even restrained from my slapdash ways and made to do things properly. Nearly finished now though, only a small section of skirting left to gloss. Is this a kayaker who can do DIY?????Nearly done!
Anyway, after all that excitement, it was time for the OSKA pool session. I wanted to think about handrolling again after last week so had a brief chat to Mackayak about it. Another coach was also there and he gave me some excellent tips and got me handrolling first with a float and then with half a paddle. Up she goes, half paddle rolling
The coach is very, very chilled and makes rolling look both easy and beautiful. His hand roll method was equally chilled and I was pleased when I managed one. As with all rolling, after that it came and went but I was pleased none the less.
My rolling has been not so great lately either, but again a few tips and it felt much smoother again. I thought about the start and the finish positions and got my left side roll back to something I was happy with. Strangely my right side felt smoother – maybe my right side was my wrong side after all?!
I left the pool feeling fairly positive and felt like I achieved quite a lot today. :-)
