Training. Last week I wrote that the things go well and I can also run 2 days in a row but I must learn to shut up. Since monday I feel pain on the back, into the neck and in the operated leg, for this reason I have only made 2 slow workouts (11.9 km and 12.1 km) and 1400 meters in the pool. To heal I am following a series of physiotherapy and thermal baths.
Memories. When I changed house I lost all the cups, the trophies, the plaques and a lot of medals. Yesterday I took this photo of the "survivors" and, as you can see, I received the unexpected visit of an alien.
The races and the doubt. From may to june, every sunday there are many events and I have to choose carefully the best. On sunday the Vivicittà (12 k) in my city, on april 10 the City of Montalto (10 k) and on april 17 the Appia Run (13 k). The first (Vivicittà) is a question of honour because it is in my city; the second (Montalto) is the main event because I can enter in the top 10 of my age group; the third (Appia) is a wonderful lap through the most ancient road of Rome, near roman monuments and through a beautiful park. My plan could be to save energy in the Vivicittà (goal 5'00"/k - 8'03"/ml); to push "over the limits" in Montalto (goal 4'43"/k - 7'35"/ml) and to enjoy the sunny morning in Rome (goal 5'05"/k - 8'11"/ml).
What would you do? Is this a good plan or do I have to push in every race?
