I apparently got some sweet sunburn yesterday which made sleep fairly uncomfortable. I was supposed to wake up at 6 AM to get ready for the road race but since I wasn't sleeping well, I got up at 4 AM. I need to layer on the sunscreen and get some aloe later.
I hope the sunburn doesn't prevent me from getting in the water today, I bought a board more suitable for beginners yesterday that I'm itching to try out. It's a foam board that is apparently much more stable and always rides on top of the water due to its buoyancy which also makes paddling easier. The only downside is it does not ride well in really big waves.
