>Off the Beaten Path>Training for races other than running-- Stand Up Paddleboarding?
I was wondering if anyone on here does SUP training? I'm an adult with a form of autism and have been asked to join a team of adults on the spectrum competing in paddle board races. The team is sponsored by our local ASA. Anyway there are 6 races this summer (which is good as I'm not running any summer races) that range in distance from 1 mile to 4 mile. I'm a recreational paddleboarder, so I'm kinda slow. The first race is on May 4th. I've hunted on line for any training programs, but am at a loss as to how to "train" for this upcoming race. I'm going to do the beginner race (1000 meters). It's in a bayou that I paddle in anyway. So any SUP or Kayakers, give me some advice. Thanks...
