I thought I had better write a bit about what I have been up to! I left Segovia, Spain 3 weeks ago and headed to Toronto via Frankfurt. I have spent the last 3 weeks not only in full training mode getting ready for the World Para Cycling Championships, but also visiting with family and friends.
I decided to rent my own place to stay instead of bunking in with family as I knew I really needed to focus on my training. It has worked out beautifully being able to get up and go for some great rides but also have the time to visit. Although the roads here in the Toronto area certainly bore the brunt of their polar vortex winter! I have never seen so many potholes and large gaps in the roads! There seems to be road crews on every single street trying to repair them. So riding was interesting dodging huge holes that seemed to spring up really fast!
I certainly haven’t done much sitting still while I have been here and it seems like every time I am home it is non stop, trying to fit all the visiting in. It is always great to see family especially as my parents are getting older and my niece and nephew are growing up! And I always love spending time with my sister, actually it is always hard to have to leave when the whole of your blood relatives live so far away! I even got to spend time with my Australian niece who is now living in Toronto with her Canadian husband.
