I'm embarrassed to even ask this, but here goes: I've taken to riding the train and my bike to work; the car commute was absolutely killing me. While I was still driving, I managed to bring a shortboart to work and stash it in an unused cubicle. Now, while it is theoretically possible to take the boart, strap it to my bike, and go for a surf at lunch, I've found that it is too time-consuming to do very often. I can usually carve out an hour over lunch to work out, and in order to get a surf in...it takes longer than an hour. I've been working out in the gym at lunch, but what I'd really like to do is get in the water for a paddle. I work on the water, a bay, so it's pretty easy to get into flat water. Unfortunately, I don't have room for anything bigger than my shortboart at work; a longboart, or something like a Bark paddleboard or SUP is out of the question. The question: I know there is value in just taking the shortboart out for a paddle, but as a regular form of exercise, say 2-3 times a week, is it worth it? I did some Googling to see if there was any workouts or ideas for this other than just plopping out in the bay and simply paddling but I couldn't find anything. It seems that it's obvious that it has to be a worthwhile form of exercise, but...well, I just don't know. I find it hard to imagine myself laying on a 6' board and going paddling for an hour...somehow a 12' paddleboard makes it much more appealing. I mean, I can paddle a Bark for 45 minutes no problem, but my arms are ready to fall off after about 3 minutes on a shortboart. What do you guys think?
