A rest day was a must after yesterday's big climbs. Another issue was trying to find a protien drink which I needed in order replace diminished stores( must happen within 45 mins of a prolonged effort).Today I found the protien which should enhance recovery after the next ride. I drove out today to preview some possible routes and again I was stuck by the fact that there is no easy valley riding between passes----it's all up and down ( mainly up!).Today as I got to some of the higher passes I was aware of the lean oxygen content at altitude. Another thought that occured to me as was weaving around these roads - .this is not a place for anyone who experiences motion sickness in a car.In response to a question about transportation of my Humira - it's usually straightforward packing in cooler bag along with some ice bags. I was operating close to the line travelling from Pescara, in the south, to Venice in the north with a temp. of 30C. Til later - Ciao.
