Day 12 – My Morning Shift

Day 12 –

So now that you know my shift pattern I thought I would fill in some of the blanks and take you through what I do when not rowing.  My first off shift for the day starts at 0900 and this is usually when I have breakfast.  This is normally either porridge or custard and berries, 2 of the only things worth eating in the morning.  Once I have cooked and eaten that it is into the cabin for a good stretch session and a massage with my trusty trigger point massage ball, great for the places you can’t reach yourself.  This takes about 20 minutes and is well worth doing as I feel like a new person after it.

Then it is on to a good baby wipe bath, it is essential to have good personal hygiene, especially living in such close quarters.  Once I am all clean it is time to apply new Sudocream and Bodyglide and then I am almost ready to hit the oars again.

A good coverage of sun cream is just smart and then if I have time a quick cat nap or a puzzle. 

Then back on the oars at 1100 for another 2 hour stint.
