After 7 months of planning, saving, dreaming and waiting.... it is finally the day before Lisa and I leave for our European Adventures.
My backpack is packed, tickets and passport ready, so now i just have to get through the last few hours of work, clean my room and car..... sleep and wake up nice and early tomorrow morning (3.30)to be at the airport for 4am for our 6am flight to Dubai. Awesome!
We are spending 3 nights in Dubai, then onto Paris, Athens, Mykonos, Ios, Santorini, Corfu, Sorrento, Rome, Croatia, Florence, Venice, Nice, Bordeaux (for the tour de france TT stage!!), Barcelona, Valencia and back to Paris. So quite a busy schedule of the next 9 weeks but boy is it going to be fun!
My sister Lauren is also heading overseas for a 4 month trip on Wednesday so Mum and Dad will have the house to themselves for 9 weeks.
On the training front, well i have been doing bits and pieces, getting out for our Saturday group rides, and running and the odd swim. We did do some lunges at running on Tuesday evening and I have been paying for that since!
I have packed my speedos, goggles and running shoes with the intention of getting some very light maintenance training done while I am away (with the hope of making my return to full time training slightly less of a shock to my body).
Until I get back (August 7th).... don't hold your breath for another blog!
