For the past few days, I have noticed some changes. When I step down the stairs, my legs shake. I have lost a lot of muscle mass from those muscle groups I hardly use. My legs are much thinner. This is expected, I calculated that everyday I spend less than half an hour standing and walk less than 250 meters.
All the hours I spend swimming doesn’t make up for the little time I spend standing and walking.
Today was a great day of swimming, I was finally able to follow an eastern course and the water was getting a little colder, this all meant that we were not in the main part of the current anymore.
Yoav and Brian spent most of the day trouble shooting the problem with the power to our main engine. Emails have been going back and forth between them and Ras, but at the end of the day, it was still a mystery. We had some wind yesterday and we didn’t need to use the engine but this will become an issue if the wind dies, our sailboat won’t be able to catch up with the dinghy…
