It’s been a week since Pat and I came back from our cycling camp in Virginia. Although the temperature here has been horrible for the past few days, we’re both in good spirits. Pat has been crazy busy with his next projects and we’ve been riding our bikes together nearly every afternoon.
I strongly believe that the second week of camp gave me back some inner strength and confidence I was lacking for the last 3 years, thanks to all my injuries( and many, many set backs!) Being able to help out on the bike, pulling clients for miles and miles and even enjoying a heavy headwind while doing it! Teaching them how to climb, how to get a fluid pedal stroke, how to ride well in a peloton… I was a happy girl again!
Also, the transition to my new Wilier has been awesome. I feel very comfortable but yet very powerful with my new fit. I like to compare my Izzy to a luxury 4WD race car!
I leave you with a few pics of Pat and I, riding our bikes on our roads, around Mont-Tremblant. Have a great Sunday everyone!
