Weekend with the family before start of the season2015-01-30
Warming-up after the training. No, you did not misread and I did not misspell. Today we went on the rollers after training, to become warm again. It could not have been a nicer day than the last one of our training camp in Cambrils, but the cold wind was joined by rain. We rode two hours outside and after that we went on the rollers just to becoming warm again.
Unfortunately the weather in this region is not very good at this time of the year. Already at our first training camp before the turn of the year, the weather was quite cold. Besides that the new location for our training camps is very good, we enjoy the accommodation and the training routes.
But the weather is somewhat less than perfect. But maybe it is good in reference to the classic races, because I can get used to the low temperatures. Nevertheless there is always the risk to catching a cold. When you are training intervals uphill and you reach the top soaked with sweat, it would be better if the temperatures were mild. The airstream only is cooling your body down already. And in reference to Dubai I could not get used to warm temperatures.
Now I am looking forward to spending the weekend with my family - with my son and my wife. My parents will be there, too. On Monday we will start out for Dubai, where I will start into the new season. I am looking forward to it.
