If You Never Tri, You'll Never Know!

Week 6 and 7 #accountability

Week 7 was a break while one of my best friends visited from the states.

Monday was busy cleaning, grocery, and prep for our week of adventure!
Tuesday  I got a 2,000 meter swim before picking up Tish.
Wednesday - Pisa, Fiumaretta, and pizza
Thursday - Firenze
Friday - BBQ party w/all the friends and G&G came down from Milano!
Saturday - hiking in Cinque Terre
Sunday - beach day in Lerici
Can you believe it? Not a single bike or run. Plenty of walking though! We averaged over 20,000 steps a day + the CT hike was pretty intense.

Week 6 (remember, I'm counting DOWN to IM Vichy):

Monday, July 16, 2018 - Lucca (a town in Tuscany) exploration, pizza, and recapped the week; my final day w/Tish!

Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - early morning getting Tish to the airport but then time to go big with a 4 hour bike. Found out a cyclist was killed Sunday on Montemarcello (my usual climb). Kinda scared me so I opted for the trainer today w/8 x 5min SE hill climbs. Got my house and schedule back in order and I'm ready to train on!! I missed a swim but I'm playing Jenga w/my schedule a little this week... Don't tell the Coach!! ;)
BIKE (trainer)

Wednesday, July 18, 2018 - two runs today and a trip to Camp Darby (American grocery store, YAY!!). 40mins easy + 50mins w/speed drills.

Thursday, July 19, 2018 - I woke up, wished my love a happy day... and then woke up again. WHAT in the world HAPPENED!? Luckily woke up again determined to get to the pool - even cancelled a coffee walk w/my girls - 4,000m swim was on my schedule but at 2,300m the pool was so crowded and overwhelming I had to get out. Eventually came home for a 1 hour trainer ride and a very sleepy day - not sure what is/was happening.

Friday, July 20, 2018 - early a.m. run - 50mins, 4 miles.

Saturday, July 21, 2018 - early a.m. run - 2 hours for 10 miles + Milano + 40min run for 3.5 miles

Sunday, July 22, 2018 - a super failed crazy bike ride that resulted in 50mins outside + trainer time.

Week 7 isn't even mentionable and Week 6 was a rough game of Jenga training AHHH!
