Today I crossed the 2,000km mark in my training. I feel pretty good and it's nice to see the weather getting warmer. I definitely prefer warm weather cycling over cold weather cycling. I've been working with my trainer (Kevin) on an intense cycling-focused training program since January 1, and it sure is paying dividends now. Lunges and squats. Squats and lunges. Thank goodness they haven't invented the "squnge" (half squat/half lunge). I'm sure Kevin would make me do 3 sets of 25 each in a row. Enough! I'm ready to get going on this ride already.
I saw a deer run right in front of me on my ride through the Humber River park system this morning at 6:15AM. Right in the city. It was a little one, but boy could it move. That's the second deer that has run in front of me while I've been cycling just in the past 2 weeks. I saw one while I was riding in the Colgate area during my son's graduation a couple of weeks ago.
That's all for now. I'll keep you posted as departure date nears.
