Il Gravon

Another brutal cross-training session at the hands of my personal trainers, Honey and Teddi.  They started with speed-walking to Glera, then switched to Stair-mastering up the gravel road to 540 meters.  Hiking in snow only added to the difficulty.  Then they descended rapidly with their 4-wheel drive while I slipped and stumbled, then raced home.  Afterwards I had to fork over a milk bone to each of them.  Thankfully tomorrow is a rest day.
