Mid of the week I seemed to have lost any motivation to do any more biking. The weather was fine but I was fed up with hills to wind up. So I end up with less mileage than I intended to do to be prepared for next Sunday's bike race. I still hope to be fit enough to climb the "Queen of Alpine passes",
Stelvio Pass with a height of 2,757 meters. I have never done anything like this. Our local hills have not more than 150 meters of height difference. So I always try to collect a good number of them on my tours but it will be sort of different to climb for 3 hours without any chance to recover.

Anyway, the week's best news is that today I was able to run 9K and 50 minutes without any knee pain - and without diclo!
