October

October 2013. After a long period of recovery and very prudent runs at last I can run pain-free. Now the workouts are not less than 10 km and the pace is faster and easier. Very soon I will enter some short races on flat paths not to risk. Stats: Running 111.4 km (62.9 m in 12 workouts) - Swimming 10.200 meters (6 workouts). This month I skipped many days because of all the travels abroad. Here are 2 photos taken in october: with my daughter and during the gala dinner in Antwerp (Belgium).



October 1999. This was the last Urbs Mundi half marathon in Rome. It was a very scenic race all inside the most beautiful parts of the capital. I miss this event but it is impossible now to block the traffic of the center except for the Rome Marathon.

  12. Wow, that's great news. Keep doing as you are and you'll improve. No need to push to increase distance or speed -- just let it come naturally. You look good in '99. Not many runners! Go Wallabies v Italy!"
