Day 11 – The Journey – Jan. 10, 2019

The elation of starting has worn off.  The daunting awareness of what lies ahead, creeps into my sight a little more, every single day.

The only way to overcome that nagging self-doubt, is to get up, grab some water, and head on out to the Varg Barn (my garage) and commit to sweating over the next 1 hour or so.

Sometimes, that is enough.

Other times…well, I would rather not think about the other times until they knock on my door.

In the meantime, I will be on my rower, doing what I don’t do best, but doing it anyway.

Making progress.

Here are my photos from Day 11.

This is a slide show of the close-ups I took of the route I travelled on Day 11, 12 pictures in total.

day 11 end
This was my ending point for Day 11, the island of Torkildsøy.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t find much information about the island, but seems to be a somewhat happening place.

At the end of Day 11, I have travelled the following measures:

Distance:  132,277 meters

Time:  10 hours, 30 minutes, and 49 seconds

Day 11 had me travelling from the small island of Martaholmen, to the small island of Torkildsøy.  Essentially a part of Stavern, Norway, Torkildsøy is just across a small waterway from Citadel Island, which still has a gunpowder storage tower and the commandant’s house from back when the area was set up as a naval base.

Skål!
