No pictures cause no real internet. It's rather annoying.

I think it's going to be one of those days.

People are annoying too.

All my old posts are back up, btw. It's all been sorted.

Okay so quick updates.

I have successfully completed my first proper session out here. It was just incredible.

The water is warmer, the scenery beautiful and everyone is in the best of moods. We're here. We're actually getting on with it.

30 on 30 off x 7 x 5 is quite tough.

Me and my main man eddie did it.

Firsts.
Today was the first time I took off a top and buoyancy aid on the water
I paddled backwards. On both sides.

My only other experience of tidal paddling is cornwall. I loved it so much there I'm pleased to be doing it again in a completely different location.

These water feels different here. I kind of like it.

I never thought I'd say I prefer something to the Thames. But really I do already. The tide was out today and it's just breathtaking how every session will look different.

I essentially paddled along today with a huge grin on my face.

We're a little low on hot water, but we'll manage.

Life goes on and we're here to train not have a holiday.

Day is done.

And what a day.

Completed the 5ks. It was incredible out there. Just.

Another first - wore a spray deck for the entire session. I think I'm over it now.

Had a lovely skype call with charlie to end the day after a rigorous stretching session.  (BUT ALSO OOPS made a big boo boo guys. Still cringeing. Eeek)
