The Final Plan
The many injures (3 fractures in 6 years for stupid incidents + the inflammation of the sciatic nerve) and the age, made me realize that the competitive runs are definitely part of my past. Now running must be a way for me to stay, if possible, fit and healthy; a good complement for swimming and not the contrary. This means no more speedworks and long distance runs. Yes, I will enter some race but with the only goal to finish and enjoy the event.
The next scheduled plan includes 5 weekly workouts: 3 swimming (between 1600-2000 meters) and 2 running (9/10 km at 06:00-06:10/km – 09:39-09:45/m). If I can run pain free, now the problem is the sciatic nerve, I will alternate the workouts every other week.
These are my “jobs” since the 1st of September:
And now 2 photos: the 1st a very welcome guest that I met at the restaurant; the 2nd the sunset in my city 2 days ago:
