First day of the fat loss programme, just wanting to shift that last 4 (ahem) kilos and hit the magic 90Kgs. I am by no way a technophobe but I hate it when there are tick boxes or selections for options but what those options do or how they affect your programme is never explained. Everyone does it, Apple, Windows, any other software manufacturer you can mention – tick this option but I am not going to tell you what it does, most of the time it is hard to see the difference between the options until all of your data is gone or changed.
So I started my 30 minute programme which was pre-loaded into my runkeeper. 5 minutes warm up and then 30 minutes at 70% max heart rate but did the app tell me when the warm up ended ? Of course not – so now I have to fiddle with the damn audio cue options to try and figure it out. No doubt I will be half a dozen or more runs in before I get it settled down all because no-one thinks to explain how it works before you start using it.
Double dive this morning and a trip to the beach this arvo to check the surf. Yesterdays surf was a little better but nothing compared to the surf I had while the bird was here (who is also currently riding camels in Dubai). Found a dead nursing shark today too, upside down in a cave. Gave it a tug on its tail but it was definitely brown bread.
Yesterday I also fixed the Go Pro to the front of the BIC. I switched it on and left it filming for what was probably an hour of trying for the elusive one. Wasn’t until I was paddling back to the beack that I realised it was in fact on stand by rather than record. Probably for the best as the surf really wasn’t all that. I was also wearing a real ‘Jams’ from Honolulu – but don’t worry, I have more.
Another week at work beckons but I will soon be in Europe once more. My flight leaves Antigua on March 6th and I won’t return until 30th when I head for St Lucia. Once there, final preparations for the sail across the Atlantic to Mallorca.
Life is exciting isn’t it?
