Time flies (even when you’re not training all day!)
It’s already been three weeks since I left Lanzarote and arrived back to Abu Dhabi. I’m already packing again for my next destination: Tri-topia in France! Although it was great to go back to Abu Dhabi for a while to spend time with family and friends, I have really been looking forward to getting back to Tri-topia. Being back I realize how fortunate I am with the training opportunities and venues in Lanzarote and France. The cycling in both these places is much safer and more enjoyable then the UAE. Unfortunately I live quite far away from the amazing cycle track in Al Wathba which means I spend a lot of time on the turbo trainer. I can’t wait to enjoy the lovely roads and scenic routes in France. Plus, I’ll have a pool on my doorstep, such luxury! Time to up the swimming again now that the doctor has given me the all clear sign!
Although I just said the cycling isn’t as great here as other places, I did two amazing rides this weekend. The first was Jebel Jais in the stunning mountains of Ras al Khaimah, and then Jebel Hafeet the day after in Al Ain. Two great days of climbing, made possible by my ever so committed and supportive parents who drove in the support vehicle.
I’ve got a bit more training planned before I fly to Paris at 23.30. I love to travel, but I love to train in beautiful places even more, so I already can’t wait for my first session in France! I hope to see some familiar faces during the summer and I encourage you all to BOOK YOUR HOLIDAY at Tri-topia if you haven’t already!
Lots of love,
