Frustrated but excited

Well, I never thought for one minute I would be doing the Pyrenees challenge before the kayaking.

The safety boat company have said that the seas are too rough to attempt the kayak challenge this week therefore, I will be setting off on Saturday morning for the Pyrenees. I am excited, apprehensive and a little worried if the truth be known.

I do not know what to expect really but I am sure it will be a fantastic experience and will hopefully raise some awareness for Crohn's and Colitis along the way.

I would like to thank everyone who has donated so far and I promise I will get across that bloody English Channel as soon as I can.

Well, a week tomorrow I set off for the Pyrenees so the weather has to be kind to me and give me one day next week when I can attempt the kayak challenge.

I am back in the gym but I have not been in a kayak for over weeks, my car is still in France broken down, so I cannot get the kayak to the water..

Its all becoming a challenge in so many ways..

Ready and waiting

I have just returned from a great week in France with the family on holiday and now I am rearing to get the challenge completed.

As soon as the weather is good I am off to France (hopefully) by kayaking and not via ferry. It is becoming frustrating as I got myself in condition two weeks ago and now I feel I have to train again as I have not trained for three weeks.

The first thing I did on return from holiday was to check the weather and its not looking too good for the following week, but on a positive note, this gives me chance to get back into training again..

The waiting game continues..
