commute. getting warm and sweaty.

kayaking 1:10:00 [3]

Thursday night paddle, 4 hard loops, with 3-4 mins easy paddling in-between. swell/waves were crazy and I finally had my first deep water involuntary swim! It was great that it was on a thursday - i.e. ideal for being rescued if things didn't go well, but given a choice it would have been better not to go in right next to an anchored tall ship filled with party goers. I got back in straight away (yay!) and gave them all a wave before setting off again. Aside from the swim I had a really good session - the choppier it gets, the better i go compared to the other people normally around my level.

kayaking 40:00 [3]

twilight race.really could have done without this as I''m still a bit stiff and sore from saturday but whatever. Had a lacklustre start which wasn't great but toughed it out on the 2nd loop to pick up someone's wash so I was happy about that.

Swimming 30:00 [3] 1.4 km (21:26 / km)

Had planned to go for a recovery paddle but the weather was alternating between fine and sunny and howling gale with horizontal rain all day. Swim was the better choice.

kayaking 1:35:00 [3] 15.5 km (6:08 / km)

Mercury Surf Safari. From sandy bay via the casino to far end of cornelian bay. Up with the longest paddle I've ever done I recon but I much prefer a one-loop course like this than a round and round and round type course. Had a good race, maintained a steady pace particularly into the wind in the last 5k or so which meant I reeled in and then left behind a few girls I'd had in my distant sights on from early on. Recon i came 6th overall maybe which I'm really happy with. and I recon I won the over 35s category but as i had to rush off to deliver a cake I won't know for a while. Had to take nurafen before start as my shoulder was still sore from yesterday's mtb debacle.

cycling 55:00 [3]

disastrous cycle at clarence mtb park. it was all either stupidly steep uphill or downhill switchbacks which are my biggest weakness at the best of times. gradually lost more and more confidence until ended up going over handlebars due to incorrect over cautious breaking. today i didn't 'so much hate my bike as myself and the stupid person who made the trail. ugg.

kayaking 1:10:00 [3]

The weather was fairly yuk - windy, wavy & northerly. But was keen to get out anyway as I felt under done after the weekend.

And then it rained buckets as I cycled to work. *sigh*

cycling 30:00 [3]

commute. back tyre is flatish each morning and i have to pump it up. this is boring and could require my first active bit of bike maintenance on my bike since 2005. Jon was wheeling my bike back to it's parking spot the other day and noticed the back wheel was only held on by gravity - oops.

kayaking 1:18:00 [3]

from Kingston up to Mariville esplanade. barely any wind but swell in the bermuda triangle area around the Alum Cliffs. Saw a few penguins, some other paddlers, tonnes of sailing boats and an unidentified sea creature which poked it's head out of the water for a second. I hope it was a seal and not say a killer whale.

kayaking 1:10:00 [3]

got invited to a group surf session at kingston beach in the swell and sea breeze. Basically just paddled out and back a heap of times. was good practise for catching waves (and avoiding catching them)
tired now

cycling 1:45:00 [3]

thingy bend, springs, north south track, north south extension (new), north south extension (older), tolosa street reserve, city bike track, work. forgot work trousers.

This was the first time I've ridden any of those trails (except city bike path). Was horrified at first part of north south - really rocky and difficult at slow speed. the rest of it was great though -favourite bit was the new-not-quite-opened extension. swoosh!

kayaking 1:20:00 [3]

Thursday night paddle, long warm up, 3 x 8 min efforts then long warm down - kept running out of puff in the 2nd half of each interval, then really just struggled home in the warm down. I'm sure it was good for me though.

kayaking 18:30 [3]

Browns River race. Into huge headwind up to first bend but sadly the wind had died off by the time returned in the opposite direction. dang. happy with the result as I had a grand case of the sulks beforehand and was contemplating not going at all due to sore ankle and lower back.
