Wednesday: No time to work out in the morning. I was finally able to get to the gym very late Wednesday night, actually just into Thursday morning.
- 20 minutes treadmill (15% grade, 3.3 mph)
- 20 minutes elliptical (level 17, hill profile)
- 20 minutes stationary bike (level 16, random profile)
All were slightly harder than the day before, my HR response was correspondingly a bit higher too.
Thursday: I finished around 1:15am, then made a couple of calls. I got to be at about 2:30am and needed to get up at 4:30am. I had a 7:25am departure from Munich to Lyon. So, walk to the ostbanhof train station, catch the 5:24am train to the airport, arrive at around 6:00. Plenty of time.
I slept a bit on the flight from Munich to Lyon, and a bit more in the 90 minute cab ride from Lyon to Grenoble. Then I had an internal meeting, business lunch, two customer meetings, and a business dinner. I got back to my room around 10:15pm and immediately crashed.
Friday: My alarm was set for 5:30. We were out on the road to Milan by 6:00. We got to Milan around 10:30, and straight to a customer meeting at 11. This wrapped up after 12. Then a lunch with my colleagues, and straight to the airport. My flight was at 3:50pm to London, and then 6:50 departure to Boston. I landed around 8:30 local time, was home by 9:30 and in bed by 10:30. I slept for nearly 11 hours.
Not the way I wanted to spend the last real prep week before the HOCR, but needs must.
