At the weekend I swapped my lycra and cleats for a dress and heels for my sisters wedding in Innsbruck, Austria. We arrived on Thursday and within a couple of hours Emma had found the bike shop and hired a city bike to take up the mountain the next day ( it was that or a mountain bike!) She kept asking me if I wanted to go too, even for just a couple of hours, it was beautifully sunny and the mountainous scenery looked amazing. I was tempted but I said I would hang out with my sister, keep her calm, go to the hairdresser with her etc. Emma went off all excited about her adventure. The thing is though, when I was ill my sister was there 100% and sacrificed a lot to be with me at the drop of a hat when I needed her. It was worth a thousand rides on a bike. So I had a great day with my sis, the last day we would be the Mills sisters ( she is now Mrs Lee) The wedding was fabulous.
This week is busy with patients so training will difficult to fit in but I am off to Lanzarote on Saturday to provide physio on the EDT training camp for triathletes. Back into lycra and cleats I will get a chance to ride in the sun and bank some miles, keeping my legs turning over before more climbing practice at home.
