It’s very similar. If I was to be serious about stand-up paddling and racing, I would be training in a similar fashion to what I used to do, if I could afford the time. We were more or less professional athletes. We used to train a couple times a day and each week, we’d have one complete day of rest and one half day of rest. In the spring, we’d do a lot of volume to try to build a base, so we would paddle as much as 90 to 100 miles a week in the canoe. That was during the spring months and then in the summer months, we’d do all the sprints and the higher intensity work and the mileage would come down to about sixty miles a week.
