Episode 2: Training to kayak around Ireland


In this podcast John and Diane share their training stories before they took on the challenge to kayak around Ireland. They tell us about their different training programmes and the effects of it, how they kept well training in horrendous weather conditions, how they mastered the difficult task of rolling in water and why they will never forget the act of kindness from Alan O’Grady from O'Grady's Guesthouse, Clare Island. 

In the podcast Diane says “I have never in my life heard John laughing so much. He laughed for hours after it had happened, we would be paddling away, and he would literally just burst out laughing to the point where he couldn’t even paddle”. Listen to hear the full story...yes John still laughs today about it!!.
