I had a 'fun' training session today with the Chalkwell Redcaps Beach Lifeguarding Team. In the 10.8 degrees sea water down at Southend sea front, we completed our own little triathlon: a run, then a swim, and then onto the surf rescue board! Forty minutes of continuous loops doesn't sound that hard, but I was bloody knackered by the end of it and mildly hypothermic!
I Even had the chance to practice my rescue skills... with my dog! She loved being on the board so much that I think she may be the next member of the Baywatch team (Would like to see her costume!)
I just want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to Glynn at Rippleside Metalworks for becoming my new sponsor. Your help means the world to me & will enable me to replace some items of kit that was wearing out but I otherwise would have to make do with. It will also enable me to continue with my gym membership that I had cancelled due to cost which will mean I can keep up with certain parts of my training. Thankyou so much Rippleside :)
