Preparations are finalizing. I am frantically completing my equipment with saddle bag, handlebar bag and other important things. I bought the Garmin Edge 820 and I have started to map out the first segments of my journey and downloaded them to the Garmin device. It’s getting closer to the starting date which will be September 9 or 10. My physical preparation is completed and although I was not a lot of times on a bike I feel sufficiently ready. I did a lot of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) which should give me the necessary stamina. I figured that the endurance part will be accomplished during the ride. We will see.
For the next 2 weeks I will give my body a break and will go easy on it. I am getting excited but also more and more respectful of the challenge and the adventure ahead of me.
