Well, it has been 5 days since returning from Austria; Lisa and I have done our best to make the most of it. We have planned a vacation for the end of July, taken in a few more of the sites in Girona center, explored a little bit of the close area for Lisa's running, and gone for a couple longer scooter rides.
My training is coming back. I have begun to ramp up the volume a little more again after I took it easy to recover from Austria. Yesterday I had a good ride and thought perhaps the legs were coming back around. Today however, I just couldn't get the legs going. Still did a pretty decent ride, but I was struggling to find a comfortable rhythm for a good portion of it. Nonetheless, it was still a nice day at work.
After lunch, it was off into the mountains. We wound our way up a beautiful canyon paralleled by a mountain river/stream for about 10km until we turned onto another road that climbed the opposite side of the valley from our previous. Actually, it basically went up the mountain side where we turned and then over into the next valley. From the top of that climb, we were able to take a beautiful look onto the other mountains, jagged rock outcroppings/formations, and a marvelous reservoir. I had discovered this reservoir one day on a ride and decided I really wanted to show Lisa how beautiful it was. Thankfully the weather today was nice and we were treated to some pretty good views.
