Now that the holiday season is over, some are having dry January, and some started their journey to their fitness goals, some delay to start their resolution till Chinese New Year, and some, just refuse to have a resolution.
Resolution, or no resolution, you still have goals to work on for sure. And in this new year, try to make small changes to get to your goal. One step at a time. Set a timeline for that small change. These small changes are sustainable and it will make you feel better once you accomplish them. This will build your confidence to achieve your next goal, because you know, you are capable.
As we wait for the opening of the new season, let us all set our new goals, small and attainable with a timeline, and see how far we can get by the end of the year. See you in the boat Gaelics!
Regular and Race Training
Saturday – 2.45 p.m.
This Sunday’s training will be based on sign ups.
2.45pm @ the cage. Please let Aoife or Richard know if you are going to be late.
For newbies, please do take note of the following training procedure to be followed when you arrive at the cage:
1. Register for attendance and pay for training
2. Take a paddle, PFD(life vest), and bum pad.
3. If you don’t have your own water, please take 2-3 bottles of water that the team is providing.
4. Help prepare the boats for training. If you need guidance on where to go or what to do, please ask any of the regular members or your captains.
Note: We are trying to lessen the use of plastic bottles for training, please help us do this by bringing your own water and reusable containers. And please, do not leave food in the cage. Even if you have it inside your bag, which you think the scavengers will not find.
