So this morning I went out for another one of my super hot 5k runs along the sea front and then into the jungle (well Mata Atlantica really). After a large out of rehydration and a good prato feito at Mais Um we walked down to Cocanha and I decided I would paddle out to one of the little islands.

I wasn’t sure how far it was, but was pretty confident it wouldn’t be too hardcore. So I set off on my 6’3 (am sure it would have been a lot easier on a SUP), threw a little John Mayer onto my Waterfi iPod shuffle and off I paddled.

As it turned out it was about a 500m paddle there and the same back, resulting in a nice little 1km round trip. I might try the next island next week which will make the paddle about a 2km trip.
