Marple again today! Trying to do a down gate in the eddy just after an up gate in the same eddy and then across to the other side, which sounds simple, except you're not allowed to just sneak round, you have to interact with the eddy line to get from one to the other. Forgot music, could not concentrate properly; I quit at the bouncy bottom bit and went back to the nice middle bit for some more playing on waves first and trying that gate combination again, which I eventually managed but had to concentrate hard to make myself use the right strokes for the turn in the middle. Bow rudders do not work when the water is going faster than you in the same direction as you. So I need to do a bit of work to build that as an instinct. Then at the end I went down and did a couple of crosses at the bottom.

Also first session of the year when it was too hot for a cag! Hello summer!

To do:
-Practice more turning towards the flow from an eddy type stuff, learn to stop bow ruddering the flow.
-Remember music
-Sort out sleep cycle and get the fuck out of bed ever.
