Picture the scene…
You rock up on your next kitesurf holiday, the forecast is perfect, the sun is shining, the wind is blowing and the water looks perfect.
You quickly unpack your kit, set up your kite, squeeze into your wetsuit and hit the water for 6 hours straight. You’re trying loads of new tricks and you even land a few!
What a buzz! One of the greatest days of your life and you’ve got an entire week of this.
The next day you wake up a little stiff but the wind’s blowing again, so you wolf down some breakfast, rig up and again spend the entire day kiting. After a few hours you notice you’re not really able to “bring it” like you were yesterday and you start making silly mistakes, tripping over little waves and despite having a great day you’re a little frustrated you didn’t progress as fast as you’d hoped…no problem you’ve still got 5 days left.
You have a few beers to celebrate and hit the sack looking forward to another amazing day tomorrow.
You wake up and immediately know something is wrong. You have no energy, your entire body aches, you feel a bit grumpy. You roll over and try to get some more sleep but you hear the wind banging at the window, calling you. Suddenly the thought of an entire day of kiting doesn’t appeal so much, you’re tired, maybe you’ll just take it easy…but it’s windy and this is what you’re here for.
You drag yourself out of bed moving much slower now. You eat your breakfast actually wondering if you’ve got the energy to really do this today. But you tell yourself you have to, you’ve paid a lot of money to be here.
You do go kiting that day but only manage a few hours and actually spend most of the day stood on the beach chatting and watching everyone else shredding it on the water. Those few hours you do have are great but you don’t really have the energy to try anything new so you just mow the lawn and don’t really progress.
This sets the tone for the rest of the week.
As you pack up to leave on the last day, you know you’ve had a great week but reflect on how much better it could have been if you’d just been a bit more physically prepared, if you’d just been a bit fitter you could have spent the entire week ripping it up like you were on day 1.
Next time, you promise yourself, you’ll make sure you’re ready before you come on holiday.
