Well the last few weeks I have been over in Gran Canaria with some of the team and some of the Swiss. The island is a great place to train at this time of the year, temperature is good and only drizzled once whilst i was on the island so cant complain!
Training was going great, we had a few BIG days which I really enjoyed. I loved the challenge and can certainly tick a few sessions off on the pain list. It was a bit frustrating to then find out my bike had been stolen along with one other persons which really put a dampener on things! So I had to decide if I would get my spare road bike sent out before I flew to Thailand on monday or if I should go home and collect it, get it sorted with some longer extensions and then fly out to Thailand earlier than expected.
So as you can guess I am now home and waiting on my flights being changed. I always say take the positives out of everything and I was lucky enough to surprise Chelsea and come home a day early (what a romantic hey)!
If i had stayed and got my bike sent without it turning up in time then things would have been even worse so this was in my mind the correct decision.
Fingers crossed please everyone for some luck over the next week or so running up to Phuket 70.3….I need some!!
So catch you soon and will update you on the bike situation soon, police are on the case now so between the sangria and siestas they are trying to find two TT frames.
