Exciting news! I am lucky to be sponsored by a personal trainer who just happens to work at my physiotherapy practice. It will be a huge advantage to work with a professional to increase my strength and flexibility, all the while looking out for my joints, ligaments etc. And it already starts this week!

This will probably mean changes in my training routine. I don’t mind, it is good to change things up. In the meantime, I’m going to split my training into morning and afternoon sessions. Today, this means a 1hr easy spin on the turbo (done), horseback riding and then a 1hr interval session on the turbo trainer again.

The first snow fell last night, so until I’ve got spike tires I am truly confined to the turbo (and Italy đŸ˜‰ ). It doesn’t look like the weather is going to change for a few days. Cycling aside, I LOVE the snow. I’m already excited to go for a ride outside, bundled up in warm clothes, my horse’s nostrils letting out clouds of steam, the fresh snow in the forest…
