The Twelve Days of Christmas, Paddler-Style
I thought about making a video of this for you, but I can’t carry a tune even if it were placed in a bucket with a superbly sturdy handle. So I decided to spare you all the horrors of my voice and simply post my paddler version of the Twelve Days of Christmas. Happy Holidays to everyone. I wish you peace, health and happiness. This is inspired by and warmly dedicated to my coach, Chris Edwards.
You know how the song goes, so I’ve skipped to the last part…sing along now…(and if you aren’t familiar with the song, here’s a version sung by the muppets for a little extra entertainment).
On the twelfth day of Christmas my coach gave to me:
12 paddle pool sessions
11 aches and pains
10 pounds of muscle
9 stroke components
8 erg workouts
7 things to fix
6 time trials
3 new callouses
2 bigger biceps
And an ambitious training program!
Happy Holidays and Happy Winter Training to All!
