Happy New Year

Happy New Year. I want to begin this post with the best wishes for a 2012 of happiness and success, full of beautiful things and …. PB. Happy New Year, my friends!!!!!

The Storm. In the last post I wrote about the storm that hit my city and mainly the port making many damages. Here are 2 pictures, the first outside the breakwater and the second in a marina half mile far from the port:


Running. Now I am doing speed-works in the evening with the Sir Giorgio's (now Duke of Pisterzo, please Giorgio explain how you got the title) group. They are faster than me so I can improve my speed. These are the last workouts: sunday 22.8 km (14.2 mi); tuesday 13.8 km (8.5 mi), thursday 11.8 km (7.3 mi) and yesterday a tempo-run on the hills 10.6 km (6.6 mi). We will celebrate the 31st with a long distance run near the sea.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

  12. Great idea for speedwork.

    I have a cold and can't run for another few days, which is depressing!
