kayaking 1:15:00 [3]

tough session as always. 6 efforts. 2 moderate length, 2 longer than that, 2 really long. paddled ok despite being first paddle in a week - actually maybe that helped!

backout to ocean beach and aerodrome road out to Macquarie heads. thought I'd ride on the beach but decided it looked boring when I got there so went further on the dirt roads. lovely morning

kayaking 45:00 [3]

New time-trial that I'm calling the Beach to Bay - from pontoon at Kingston beach, around the furtherest yacht at blackmans bay, then back. today 34:34. I can see room for improvement. also next time i'll wear garmin. 5 mins warmup & warm down.

Running 31:00 [3]

easy jog-a-log along alum cliffs afterwards.

cycling 50:00 [3]

commute home. avoided most of rain but did get a bit as i came down the bonnet.

Monday Jan 20, 2014 #

cycling 50:00 [3]

commute to work. they have started painting on the new cycleway. not surprisingly it starts just after one dodgy section and finishes just before the other (from casino to marieville). nethertheless i'm looking forward to having a great big green lane all to myself!

Running 40:00 [3]

woohoo! finally won the mental battle with myself and went for a run! survived an easy 40 mins in peter murrell reserve.

kayaking 40:00 [3]

two sessions in a real surfski at a real surf beach - doing practise on reading the waves and negotiating the surf on the way out, and catching breaking waves on the way in. was great fun.
My strategy for getting out through the waves was just to paddle as fast as I could - consequently I got hit in the face/chest full force by some walls of water! survived it though - am keen to do it again.

Friday Jan 17, 2014 #

kayaking 1:05:00 [3]

decided to get up early (5:20) to make it in time for an informal paddle happening at 5.45 at Kingston beach. these guys do this every Monday & Friday. it was labelled 'recovery' but I was doing all I could to hang on! this is probably why these guys are improving if that pace is a recovery session - clearly I do 'recovery' much better than they do!

cycling 50:00 [3]

commute to work. not cycling home as it will be hot and the streets will be full of yobbos.

Thursday Jan 16, 2014 #

kayaking 1:15:00 [3]

big Thursday night paddle session. 5 x 12-15min 'efforts' from beach to dog buoy to garrow and back. darn nearly killed me!

Wednesday Jan 15, 2014 #

cycling 50:00 [3]

nice quiet uneventful ride in. once at work sent an email to the bus company about yesterday's incident.

cycling 50:00 [3]

commute home. when I left work I was starving, but by the time I got home I was ok.

kayaking 55:00 [3]

cruisy paddle this morning. nice and warm!

cycling 50:00 [3]

beautiful weather, no headwind but one of the yukkiest rides I've had - usual light cruisy traffic replaced by beach-going yobbos and a bus driver obviously sick of driving beach-going public transport users around. got abuse hurled at me twice, and had this stupid bus coming past 10cm away then stopping at a stop right in front so I had to go around. ended up having to pass it 4 times before it finally got away.

kayaking 1:15:00 [3]

was planning on going for a walk on the mountain today but didn't have car so instead hitched a lift in a car with a boat trailer doing a down-wind run from Cremorne to 7 mile beach. The wind was blowing and the waves were awesome - Basically it 12k of surfing down waves, then paddling through the base of it and onto the next one in front. it was fantastic fun. scary sometimes, but fantastic.
of course being a car shuffle thing it took 4 hours from start to finish!

kayaking 1:00:00 [3]

Last session with Dawid Mocke. bit of technical blurb then 10 x 2:45 ish races then turning around and starting again on the 5 minute mark. beautiful day.

Friday Jan 10, 2014 #

kayaking 1:30:00 [3]

started the day with a 5.15 wake-up in order to go to 6am paddling clinic on at howrah with world champion Dawid Mocke. was meant to start day at 5:05am but i assumed I slept through my 5.05 alarm until it went off at 5:05 this afternoon!

Anyway it was lucky Jon had set a 5.15 backup alarm so I was up and made it across the river in time. Session was really good although started with intervals that was a shock to my sleep deprived not-early-morning-loving body. 5mins, 4mins,3,2,1 then technique for rest of session thank god.

Thursday night session. this time with special guest Dawid Mocke. 10 x 3 min intervals, 1 minute rest. last 30 secs of the 3 mins supposed to be even harder but i had nothing to give! happy to hold onto the pack. 40 boats!

commute home. almost cleaned up on marieville esp by a dog walker driving away in their merc - didn't even look just pulled out. all i could do was ring my little bell in anger - it didn't sound very angry!
