Can You Even Call this Training !? #accountability Week 2

I was ready for a rest week but I really took it to the extreme. After the fact, I feel like a real slug. BUT...big but... my family arrived! How can I go away for hours training when I have things to do with my family?!

Monday Aug 15, 2018 - a restful morning although we made a report at the Carabinieri (the creepy guy from Sunday's run). Mom, Bob, and Alyssa arrived however their luggage did not. GULP! That presents a slight problem so praying for the next 24 hours...

Tuesday Aug 16, 2018 - back and forth to the Pisa airport continues. Mom's bag arrived but no sign of Alyssa's. We spent the day in Pisa shopping (for replacement clothes) and exploring. Rain kept me out of the water today ~ irony.

Wednesday Aug 17, 2018 - 50min, 4.5 mile run w/1min hard intervals throughout. We took mom and Bob to the airport for their adventure and Luca, Alyssa, Jake, and I headed to Bologna for exploration and Eataly...

Thursday, Aug 18, 2018 - EATALY all day in Bologna. Plenty of walking, and eating... no training.

Friday, Aug 19, 2018 - returned from Bologna but spent lunchtime walking/exploring Lucca.

Saturday, Aug 20, 2018 - 1 hour, 5 mile run and beach day at Lerici. Swam a little open water but not like legit training swimming...

Sunday, Aug 21, 2018 - 3 hour bike this morning, 50 miles, and then lunch in beautiful Nocchi.

Weekly totals: no swims, 1 bike x 50 miles, 2 runs x 9.5 miles.
