The week before the race
On Sunday another race to test my speed during the training for the Marathon of Rome. It will be a flat but crowdy (I think 8.000 runners) 10 k. in Fiumicino, near the international airport, with an expected final time between 43'00" and 44'00". The week in Amsterdam stopped the appropriate training but after the return I ran 8.5 km (Dec. 1), 20.3 km with the second half at race pace (Dec. 3) and 9.2 km. (Dec. 4) . The program until sunday is 12 km today, tomorrow and friday at a normal pace. On the picture there is part of the breakwater where I sometimes make the speed workout.
