The last week has been a total joy out on the water. It seems we have been blessed with some unusually hot weather for this time of year, which I have deffo been making the most of. On one of the days I even rode without a wetsuit – although I did end up regretting that decision I hasten to admit..
The sun definitely changes the way you ride; it makes things a lot easier. And such a good buzz down at Liquid, with everyone mixing it up, riding and chilling, you can’t beat a bit of sun. In saying that, call me weird, but I’m a huge fan of a dark miserable, rainy day too… Love riding in the sun, love riding in the rain: I was made for riding in the UK!
I had my first one-to-one lesson on Sunday, which went really well. It reminded me of how I was when I was learning; seeing the stoke in someone’s eyes when they get that bit closer to nailing a new trick.
I also started phase two of my training in the gym at Lakeside with Neil Shannon. Fairly brutal I must say, but it was a good burn and it’s all for a good cause so you just have to crack on with the pain..
Got a delivery from Vans last week.. stoked.com!! Nice to have some fresh tees and kicks to stroll in…
Shorts weather soon…
