Hi Russ,

Caught up with your blog, the pic of you eight months ago shows how far you have already come, very good job.

Just back from my trip to Portugal, one of the paddlers there was a German para woman who wants to go to Rio in 2016 so i was helping her with some coaching.
Her trials are at the end of April so five weeks to get up to speed for this year.
She’s LTA so not a huge leap to get her balancing in a para K1, needs to mostly work on power.
I don’t think she is really prepared to put in the needed effort as she makes the excuse she has 40 hours a week work to do.
She was shocked when i said to give up socialising and focus 100% on your goal, there are 128 other hours a week…

So here’s a joke i got from her:

Too Drunk to Walk

An Irishman’s been drinking at a pub all night. When he stands up to leave, he falls flat on his face. He tries to stand one more time, but to no avail. Again, he falls flat on his face. He figures he’ll crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up. Once outside, he stands up and, sure enough, he falls flat on his face. The Irishman decides to crawl the four blocks to his home.

When he arrives at the door, he stands up and falls flat on his face. He crawls through the door into his bedroom. When he reaches his bed, he tries one more time to stand up. This time, he manages to pull himself upright but he quickly falls right into bed. He is sound asleep as soon as his head hits the pillow.

He awakens the next morning to his wife standing over him, shouting, “So, you’ve been out drinking again!”

“Why do you say that?” he asks innocently.

“The pub called. You left your wheelchair there again.”

best regards & have a great fight night
