Training goes on

Given all this rain, it's nice to look back and remember how fun the training was when it was snowing. I was running with a 6kg pack here in training for my long trek across Patagonia's dense forests and mountains. I'II probably be carrying a 10kg pack during the race including tent, sleeping bag, food and much needed foot treatments.

This picture below was taken right in the middle of Cardiff Bay (a good 200m swim to land!) last Saturday when Neal and I were out training for the DW. The thing about K2 paddling is that the number one rule is not to fall out because if this happens the only way to get back into the boat is to swim/drag the boat to shore, empty it out and start again. Neither of us spoke much during this crossing despite the conditions being perfect!
