Well, I know I should be easier on myself, but today I spent all the time getting ready, loading gear and kayak, and driving to the put -in. All went well, boat unloaded, gear OUT of the car next to the kayak. Oh no, where’s that PFD?
I couldn’t believe it. I’d left it hanging to dry over the shower rod after last Thursday’s outing! I contemplated whether I should go without one (I’m an excellent swimmer). I knew that really wasn’t a wise decision, even though the weather was calm and I could stay close to shore all the while; I was also solo. I thought, here’s one of those times when you’re decision-making is tested; a process that requires discipline. Well, I didn’t go. I packed everything up and drove home. Please tell me I’m not the only one who’s done something so stupid! I guess it’s a training day with a HR monitor on the bike.
