  paddling vs. cycling
  Posted by: Jaybabina on Mar-26-13 8:06 AM (EST)

Boats never coast. You are always breaking water. It's like cycling uphill all the time. So you have to pace yourself. Pace doesn't mean slow, it just means that until you develop the stamina, you learn what your body can do for extended periods. In the spring, I have to really pace myself from overheating in a drysuit and from not paddling all winter.
By Fall we are like animals on the water with highly enhanced conditioning and never really tire out.

I go through the same thing on my bike.
