Tahoe to Tucson

By Leesa Gabel

At some point after the first couple of Tahoe training rides, I came to the conclusion that my body wasn’t ready to just jump right back in to where I was in June 2010. It was a very rude awakening. So after much discussion with Craig, I decided to drop from the Tahoe team and join the Tucson team instead. The two main reasons, one: longer time to train — El Tour de Tucson isn’t until Nov. 17, and two: El Tour de Tucson is relatively flat!! Sure it’s an extra 11 miles, but it’s much, much flatter!

Training has been going well. Still getting used to being back on the bike and being active. I’ve started a new page – Adventures of the Blue Basket – there I’ll write strictly about being on my bike.
