I really thought I’d be good to go again today, but instead I’ve decided to wind my neck in. When I am ready to go I’ll feel ready to go.
The closer I got to going the more conscious I became of the general lack of energy and remaining sense of unease I feel about my fitness. It’s only 2 days since I came down with this bug and the weather, though not unpaddleable, is certainly at the end of the spectrum that requires concentration, fitness and a good sense of self.
When my faculties return to strength I will return to the water because although I made a promise do this journey, I also made a promise to my girls to do it safely.
Time is still on my side.
