6 MILE RUN
Today was all about getting 6 miles under my belt utilizing my new Forerunner. It worked great! I haven’t really looked at the data or analyzed it, but it was really great to see my exact distance and monitor my speed. I worked on my forward stroke with the new wing paddle and interestingly, when I felt “the groove” my speed was up. Funny how that works. (:
It was a really calm and sunny day. I started out about an hour before high tide this AM. There was the slightest breeze the last mile or two. I stayed in the sloughs today. There were lots of birds……..
I went out the main channel and turned south into Westpoint Slough just before entering the bay. I paddled 3 miles which took me past some very modern business buildings. What a vista if you worked there. I turned around at three miles and headed back. The tide was on ebb as I headed back into the marina. I saw five or six other kayaks, a few paddleboards and dragon boats. The young sailors were out too. I have a 3-day weekend, so I’ll be going out again Monday.
eat well, sleep well…….paddle fast
