Monday, April 30, 2018 - ^ those are American friends!
1 hour on the trainer this morning, baking, and scrubbing. Luca's parents are coming today for the night and we're celebrating Luca's birthday w/a BBQ Lunch.
I tried to do a little bit of calisthenics but felt the knee and decided against it.
Snacks and drinks w/friends (and family) this evening and an early night in.
BIKE (trainer) - 1 hour

Tuesday, May 1, 2018 - it's Italy Labour Day! 1 hour on the trainer this morning while the people slept. Guess this is what I do now!
Celebrated Luca's birthday w/family today. So much meat!!

Wednesday, May 2, 2018 - Happy Birthday to the love of my life!! While he had to head to work, I headed to Firenze w/Danielle to pick up my Passport. I'm Johnson again across the board!! Plenty of walking, but no official training. Good news, my knee is feeling okay.
Luca had a night flight so his birthday was celebrated in the sky!
REST

Thursday, May 3, 2018 - rainy morning; 1 hour on the trainer. Very little trace of knee discomfort. I'm believing that what the doc saw on the MRI was all stuff that's been there and not what caused the pain. I believe I twisted it wrong sitting at the chair and either tendon or muscle just needed a little recovery. Going to get through the weekend with continued light workouts and try a run next week.
Celebrated Luca's birthday w/friends tonight! And cake ;)
BIKE (trainer) - 1 hour

Friday, May 4, 2018 - and he's off... ship mission. 3 weeks solo starting now. Got on the trainer - yes the TRAINER again. I'm riding outside Sunday, I promise!! 1 hour. A few errands... and... nothing. It was rough not having anything to look forward to tonight. Kinda sad. I already miss my Luca! Jake and I ventured to the tenuta for a 30min/2 mile walk though!
BIKE (trainer) - 1 hour

Saturday, May 5, 2018 - up and out for a 2 hour ride. Hit 36 miles. FINALLY! A decent ride and outdoors. I didn't even almost die! And I had guys drafting me the whole time, HAHA! A very quiet day with Jake - cleaning, a few errands, and working.
BIKE - 2 hours, 36 miles

Sunday, May 6, 2018 - started the morning on the bike again (trainer) but not for long enough for it to count... met Diletta (an Italian friend) at the tenuta for a long walk - 1 hour, 4 miles. Later we met up again for some exploration! Totaled near 20,000 steps after it was all said and done. Nice!
Jake play, dinner, and work to follow. It was a lonely weekend w/out our Luca.
WALK - 1 hour, 4 miles + more w/exploration

Weekly Totals:
Swim x 0 It was a difficult week to swim since Monday I had guests and Wednesday was a National holiday ~ those are my normal swimming days.
Bike x 5 at 6 hours and 100 miles (apx, estimating 16 miles per trainer ride)
Run x 0 (this was the week off for knee recovery
Walk x 1 at 1 hour and 4 miles (plus Jake walks daily)

This week kind of went in slow motion.
I had a few rough days. Between the knee, maybe PMS, permesso stress, the one month mark of Jamie dying, and Luca leaving... Just some rough days in there.
Oh and then to top it all off, I made a guy fall over on his motorcycle Sunday. He's not hurt, no worries, but his bike got scratched.
