Day 10 – False Dawn

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.

    having done the 3 Peaks and gone up Snowdon in atrocious conditions I fully understand your reasons for staying put! It’s not worth it so get yourself fit and strong, eat plenty and wait for the right moment.

    Take it easy Bruce – a bug can leave you listless for a week or two… I did a walk up the west coast and had to have a three week break due to straining my knee after only two days… but you will get there in the end!
