Thank you Lady Christina
The Gift. 3 days ago I received a nice surprise, in my mailbox I found an envelope from Lady Christina, the 21th Annual Midnight Madness 3 mile run/walk beautiful long sleeves shirt: thanks, you are very kind, I will wear it with proud! Training. Despite the rain and the cold I don't use the "dreadmill", I prefer the workouts. My weekly schedule includes 1 or 2 easy runs (10-12 km), 1 tempo run (10-13 km) and 1 long distance run (20-23km). This afternoon I ran a l.d.r. with Sir Giorgio: 22.5 km. (14 ml). The pool is useful to strengthen the upper body and to stretch neck and back.
Towards Ostia. As I wrote in my last post, the next race will be the Roma-Ostia half marathon. Around here in January and February there are not many events so we cannot use other races to prepare the half. Indeed every Sunday in Rome we can find 2/3 races but the traffic inside the city is a deterrent; no matter about the fee and the poor loot because we run for fun. Moreover very often we have to go there (50 miles far) the day before to get the bibs.
Edinburgh. In march I will spend some days in Edinburgh (Scotland) with my son Paolo to watch the rugby match Scotland-Italy. I hope to find there a race during the week end (March 18-19).
What was your more distant race from home?
Have a wonderful week-end
