After being in the Philippines for a couple of months for some training, and after a couple of races on that side of the World, its time to come to Europe for a while!
Stephen and I would have gone to our home in Switzerland, but since the pool is closed for its annual clean, there is no point being there.
Therefore we came to Club La Santa in Lanzarote. Isabelle Janssons made it possible for Stephen and I to be here for the 6 weeks leading into Ironman Lanzarote. ThankYou Isabelle
It is great to be here! Club La Santa creates the perfect sporting environment and nice weather too. The facilities are perfect and on our doorstep. A great pool, a great gym, a great track and other sporting facilities, but I just stick to pool, track and gym! The island of Lanzarote has many amazing roads to ride. I have raced Ironman Lanzarote 2 times before but I have never noticed how magnificent a place it really is. Since we arrived here I have been really enjoying riding my bike. Dont worry Boss, I am not going around on my hoods looking at the views! ..but I have noticed the views a bit, ..much more than I do when I race!
We are staying in the accomm on site. They are fine little apartments! However, it was a bit of a shock when we arrived and noticed there was no TV! Help! Stephen and I like to watch TV!
But we are actually doing ok without. We train, eat and speak to each other more instead! We buy a newspaper too! ..however, the paper has to last us 3 days, since Stephen says it is too expensive to buy a newspaper every day! (..the euro is hard for us Brits right now! )
Ok, time to go ride,
