If You Never Tri, You'll Never Know!

Ironman Italy Week 11

This week was a complete bust. I'm sorry but not sorry. It is said that if you sleep it's because you need it. Did I really need ALL this sleep!? Perhaps, because it happened!!

Monday, July 17, 2017 - recovered from the weekend of biking. That bike seat! :O Packed up, and caught a flight for my return trip to Italy. Phoenix to Atlanta to Amsterdam to Pisa...

Tuesday, July 18, 2017 - travel. Arrived in Pisa late afternoon. My luggage however, did not. Grr. I'm too tired to care. My boys <3

Wednesday, July 19, 2017 - jet lag! Up and working by 4am but no motivation for anything physical. Went back to bed around 10am and woke up near 3pm. Wow! Hell-a-nap!! Got a few work tasks accomplished though. No word on my luggage. Grr. Back to bed so early and yep, up at 2am, wide awake!!

Thursday, July 20, 2017 - wow, my clock is SO off! After being up from around 2am until noon, I fell back to sleep for the afternoon again. I only woke up to pick Luca up from work. Luggage came in and we cruised to Pisa airport. Managed to stay up until almost 11pm tonight. Still no energy for training though...

Friday, July 21, 2017 - I slept all night!! Up at 5:30am for coffee and HIIT. Woo!! Met D & D at Bow Wow Beach for some puppy play time and spent more time on sleep recovery... Big weekend of training...

Saturday, July 22, 2017 - 45min run first thing in the a.m. followed up with a 3 hour bike ride w/Luca. We went 40 miles, 40 hard miles!! Two mountain climbs and really enjoyed the views from the top. It was a casual ride although tough. And it was HOT HOT HOT...

Sunday, July 23, 2017 - the goal was to get to Lerici for a swim. Guys, I slept again ALL day! I even had an on and off fever. WHY!? WHAT!? the... UGH!
