Northern Italy Makes The Time Fly

I’m so elated to be in week 7 of 12 week training for Bike The West 72 mile ride of a lifetime.  

Overseas Beauty

Bit gym makes my training rides interesting with their live to tape video of gorgeous landscapes from all over the globe. Today’s ride was good and manageable 4×5 min intervals at heart rate zone 4 inside 60 min ride at 90 cadence.  I decided to get my workout in watching people tour Norther Italy, and the view was breathtaking.  Sometimes you just gotta get away! 


The beauty of training for an event, of any magnitude, is that your eyes are open to all the that this life has to offer- we just have to put those glasses on and look around!!  The training for this destination ride in Tahoe has given me new perspective and new bucket list.  In the future, I want to visit Europe and see it by foot or bike.  

In the meantime, going for my recovery drink now- ENJOY THE DAY.
