20th March, 2012 365 steps
With only eight weeks to go before I hopefully ride at the Mark Rashid clinic, I didn't feel that I should have a week off from training. The steps at Pollensa are pretty daunting - 365 in all and not one of them evenly spaced. On day one I was able to run as far as house 12 before stopping to get my breath back. By the end of the week I could get to house 28. Little improvements all the time. What was really revealing was when David and I walked up to Santa Puig, 45 minutes of steep hill and I found it relatively easy. Turned round to find my naturally fit husband sweating somewhat and out of breath! There is a God!!
