Arrival Day + Intro to Surf Style Training
The first day of the Restart Health Escape started at 12noon, with half of the group having checked in to the beautiful hill side Radisson Hotel Phuket. We had just enough to play a fun game of volley ball. My first in a long time and needless to say I almost took myself out a few times diving for the ball!
Now to say that the Radisson is comfortable would be an understatement. The multi level complex of luxury is laden with pools and daybeds encouraging you to relax and enjoy a beautiful holiday over looking the Cape Panwa coastline.
BUT we are here to get fit and have fun!
Wrapping up the beach session and games with a few goals for the future like perfecting our SUP boarding skills we took ourselves to the hotel pool side bar for a yummy lunch and fresh coconuts.
By 5pm the rest of the crew arrived and it was time to go through Core Engagement the Surf Style Training way before easing into an Active Stretch session focusing on Hamstrings, Hips, Groins and Shoulders. Rolling off the floor as we all recover from Jetlag we got ready and went across the road for some local Thai food followed by a trip to Phuket town market.
Needless to say most of the stales where the same till we hit the food section! So many smells, so much happening it was hard to tell what was savory and what was sweet, Self select Sushi, Hot Pots, all sorts of meat on a stick not to mention a few bug stands. Not my cup of tea but they actually smelt good!
A few small and slightly questionable sweet treats later and we where all reedy to hit the hay heading straight for our mini bus to head "home". My last thought, I miss my better half but damn it's good to have a King Size bed all to myself!
