Brussels

Brussels. On Nov. 6th and 7th I have been to Brussels for the ESPO award ceremony. I didn’t bring with me the running clothes and I was "lucky" because it was rainy weather for both the days. Here are some photos of the city:







Running. On the running front I cannot complain. I take the workouts easy and I am planning a 10 km race with Sir Giorgio. Maybe in Rome on nov. 17th. This afternoon I have tried the distance on a challenging route with a relaxing pace without pushing at all: finishing time 58:30.  See the elevation chart:


Swimming. The things go well. Swimming is a complementary activity or is …. running the complementary one? However I am following a healthy cross training.

 HAVE A GOOD WEEK END

  3. The pictures are amazing!

    Your speed is coming back quickly. I'm not sure I could even run 6 miles at that pace. Well done!

    58:30 is a good training run for a hill course. Good luck!

  7. KATE: I think that your 10k was an orienteering race in the dark, on the hill and a lot of mud!

    TEAMARCIA: Thank you for the support but the way is long again.

    JILL: As I wrote the speed is not important anymore. I hope I succeed in running for some year again.

    AJH: But the pictures on your blog are better!

    EWEN: Italy has planned a wrong tactic. Moreover, as you have seen, we don't have a kicker.

    AMY: Next time sunny and warm weather!

  9. Isn't it amazing how much prettier things look at night with the lights on? Not that the buildings don't look amazing in the day. It's just in the dark they look even more majestic.
