We're still on Spanish soil, enjoying fantastic days of exercise and training in the sun. Even though my legs are beginning to get pretty packed with kilometres, we're glad that we postponed our return home. Our last days down here will be utilized to their fullest potential. We'd be happy to stay even longer with conditions as good as these.
We've had unusually good weather for February here on Majorca, meaning that we've been able to do all-important intervals and high intensity loads these last two weeks. My break due to sickness is far behind and we're well under way again. Four days sick in bed were irritating and impractical as always. So in order to complete our planned training for this period in preparation for the upcoming race in a good week from now, we decided to postpone our return a few days.
There are many cyclists at our hotel these days, but our own group has diminished considerably this last week. The final members of Team Merida left on Saturday. Today the mountain-biker Linda and ice-skater Annette left for Norway, so now it's just Lene, Kenneth, and me left here. I know that there are several Norwegian cyclists here on Majorca right now and they're probably also very happy for the fantastic cycling conditions down here.
