I shouldn’t have…

I was so bored being ill but the day started with actual sunshine and Ozzie insisted “…it will be good for you…” ┬áso my resistance crumbled and I got my glider on the car…

Everything was ok for about 2 minutes, then, when I found I was resting my head on the basebar it became clear I was too weak to be flying. Thoughts then turned to landing, but I started getting into weak lift over takeoff, so I enjoyed that for a while and reflected on the adjustments I have made to my harness and hang loop. This has been going well, I think one more small change and Ill have a good drop and position…

After an untidy arrival not anything akin to any landing I know – I almost could not get out my harness and had to have a brief rest – so not the best route to recovery – I don’t recommend flying when you are ill and weak.
