From Kingston to Marieville Esp. blowing southerly but with enough easterly in it to make me need to paddle for 25 minutes straight outwards so I could line up a good run to sandybay. Then I had to correct out to the garrow and line up the approach. Got some great rides in there, including a few which completely submerged the front of the boat as it dived straight down the wave - they're always exciting! took longer than I was planning due to the extra paddling so missed Jon's pickup and he went off to look for me. caught up with eachother in the end though.


My back is killing me. not sure what I've done. Too much olympics watching? Or maybe 3 runs in 3 days? i'm ok in most positions but can't bend to pick anything up or lift anything or do up shoes. when I carried hte boat in from the water at the end of my paddle I couldn't bend down to put it down, so ungracefully lowered myself to my knees. ugg.

Beautiful weather but I didin't feel like paddling in the derwent today so I drove the 30 mins to franklin like I did last weekend. This time I went south though - so through the canal, down towards Port Huon then back up to franklin. it's a bit longer than the other way but a nice change. I battled the incoming tide and a headwind on the way down but it made for a quick trip north once i finally got around the bottom of the island. 43mins down, just over 30 mins or so on the way back. tried to make it a nice steady training paddle.

kayaking 1:10:00 [3]

Got a text message today describing the upcoming session as 'hard' which after the last two sessions of suffering meant I spent the rest of the day fretting about it.

turned out it wasn't so bad. 11 x 1 minute on, 1 minute off, then 5 minutes paddling into the middle of the river, then a 20 minute 'time trial/race' back to the beach. it wasn't easy but it was easier than the other ones.

kayaking 1:20:00 [3]

seventy minutes of this was a nice loop on mirror calm water from Franklin around the northern part of Egg Island. I think that paddle marks the official start of Summer Survival Training which is on in 4 weeks.

the other 10 - 20 minutes was paddling with the kids at kingston beach in the afternoon. Jett paddled with me down browns river. I found that if I put my paddle down and paddled with my hands, we were going at the same pace! Jett's boat doesn't have a rudder so he spends a bit of time spinning around a bit. all good fun thouhg. water is really warm at the moment but the jelly fish a bit further out to sea are as big as basket balls.

almost didn't paddle today but it would have been a crime not to given it was such beautiful weather - so I went out for 50 mins from kingston beach. the size of the jellyfish at the moment is un-nerving.
