After I cut my finger I said I’d keep the training blog going until I decided if I would race or not. I’m not going to race.
Having been doing physio for a couple of weeks it is obvious that it is going to take a while to recover. I can’t do much upper body exercise, let alone paddle, for several weeks. I’ll probably be able to paddle by the time it gets to DW but I won’t be paddling well. I won’t be going any where near as fast as I could which would be frustrating. Not to mention the cost and time taken to feel like I’m not doing myself justice.
I don’t think it is worth continuing the training blog. I’m not really training properly at the moment. It is more like I’m trying to get some general exercise and do whatever exercise I can fit around it than actually training for something, so it is unlikely to be useful or especially interesting.
Hopefully next year I can have a good crack at it.
Good luck to everyone else.
