If You Never Tri, You'll Never Know!

And now I'm 38! #accountability Week 8

Starting off the week w/my birthday! YAY!! Happy Birthday to ME!!!
Last week, looking back, was satisfying. I've had a lot more runs which I love and my body is accepting well. I have a huge saddle sore but I feel like I'm getting appropriate mileage on the bike; despite hell traffic. And my swims have always been what they are. I feel better than I ever have swimming though! I'm looking forward to another full week of training and then...TISH will visit!


Monday, July 2, 2018 - I happily took a rest day today!!

Tuesday, July 3, 2018 - permesso appointment to start our day followed by an 1,800m swim and 33min run. SO HAPPY to have my Luca home. p.s. I don't feel any older *wink wink*

RUN 3.1m

Wednesday, July 4, 2018 - 1 hour on the trainer (turbo - 10min warm up, 8 x 2mins hard + 3mins recovery, 10min cool down). Biked to Bocca di Magra to meet Jenna and her mom for caffรจ. It was an easy casual ride but still!

BIKE (casual 40mins)


Thursday, July 5, 2018 - 4,000m swim this morning. Could have drowned these boys that were fucking off in my lane, UGH. And then old guy back stroking. Seriously, some of us are trying to actually SWIM LAPS! I was scheduled for an hour run but this swim wiped me out. I delayed until evening... 15mins warm up + 4 x 1min hard + 2mins easy... and a little bit more w/Jake. Hot and done. Man, today's swim really got me!
