8th July 2007: Dover Training
Not the best of weeks. After a visit to the GP all training has been shelved this week while I try to get rid of the chest infection that I have. I've tried the 'ignore it and hope it goes away' tactic, but strangely enough it didn't work!! What I did do was go down to Dover and stomp the shingles instead. It was great mental training, and gave me an entirely different perspective on training and tactics, plus the chance to have some great conversations with some very experienced people.
I also had the chance to meet my pilot Neil Streeter and pay a visit to the boat. It really helps to picture things before the day.
Fingers crossed that things will return to normal next week.
