September

September 2013. I cannot complain, in september I made a total of 20 workouts: 10 swimming (16.700 meters) and 10 running (91 km. - 56.5 m). This month I cannot follow a scheduled program because I have to spend, for work, 8 days in Belgium and Spain where I hope to have the time for some "touristic" runs through the cities.

September 1990. Pioneer times for runners in Italy. On september 9th, 1990, while I served at the Naval Base of La Maddalena (Coast Guard), I ran a 7.2 km race with the finishing time of 30:50 (4:17/km - 6:53 m): well, I was 8° of 14 overall. Yes, only 14 participants!!! Below: the start, the last meters and ... after the race!



Have a good running/biking/swimming week!

  1. I can't imagine ever having run that fast. So glad you were able to get in so many workouts this month. That had to be a good feeling after all the ups and downs you've been through.

    Enjoy your travel and touristy runs! :)

  4. Great to see you're back running. I hope you'll increase your mileage in October.
    Enjoy your next short race in Rome on October 6th: I know that the race will be held for a great social cause.

  5. You're still managing a pretty good training schedule despite all your injuries. That's impressive. Most people will use anything as an excuse not to work out but not you. I hope you get time to do your sight-seeing runs while you're travelling for business.

  9. September was a good month for you. Mine was not so good with me being sick for nearly three weeks. I love the old photos! Lets see what the Springboks can do against the All Blacks. Will be a very physical game.

  10. Good to hear your training last month went well. Shorts have changed since 1990! 8th is a good place and 4:17s is quick - you'd win races with that these days. Enjoy your holiday.

  13. Very, very happy to hear you are getting more miles in!
    My husband travels frequently to Brussels, he really enjoys it out there. Always comes home with a suitcase full of Cantillon.
