Umbria. I spent one week in Umbria (green region in the heart of Italy) with my wife Daniela. We visited many beautiful places but the heat was a problem (40° C - 104 F). In the pictures (click to enlarge) you can see Preci (n°1), Sibillini Mountains Park (n° 2 - with Daniela - and 7), Collescille (n° 3), Spoleto (n° 4 and 5), Cascia (n° 6), Acquaro (n° 8), Visso (n° 9 and 10) and Todi (n° 11 and 12). In the photos n° 1 and 3 the Black Knight wears with pride the t-shirt of the italian rugby team (Azzurri). It was impossible to make workouts, too hot, but we had an accommodation in a hotel with pool and treadmill where I could swim and run.
Training. I keep on running and swimming to be ready to start on sept. 5th the scheduled program for the Florence Marathon. In the meantime every week I also make a long distance run with the help of my friends Giorgio, his squire Massimo and Gianni.
Question. Do you find the time for your workouts when you are in vacation or when you travel for business?
....and as Jill wrote: run strong, my friends!!!
