Black is back

Ricordo running race. On feb. 12 I ran a 11.5 km (7.15 ml) race in Rome to remember the foibe massacres. The route was very challenging with only ups and downs, moreover, for a mistake of the organization, we ran 11.5 km instead of the programmed 10. The finishing time was 1:05:22 (5:40/km - 9:08/ml). I cannot run faster because my right arm is permanently injured after the incident occurred last year and the subsequent surgery (as you can see in the pictures). Now I run for fun and to stay fit but .... it's hard. At the moment the monthly mileage is only 100/120 km. As usual Sir Giorgio is my running mate.




Have a good Sunday.

  7. Sei stato un grande a tornare sul campo di battaglia dopo l'infortunio dell'inverno scorso. Ci hai creduto, e sei tornato in gara con un buon 5.20 min./km, senza forzare e in un contesto tutto collinare. Coltiviamo questa grande passione che consiste anche nel non mollare, continuare a misurarci con noi stessi, sapere quando è il momento di non forzare, capire quando il corpo può essere sollecitato. Ma è una passione che consiste anche nel vedere luoghi, atmosfere pre-gara e gente entusiasta di concludere un circuito di 10 km. La "garetta" di tanto in tanto è un obiettivo importante che ci consente di non mollare. Conserva questo entusiasmo.

  8. Good to hear from you Stefano. I'm happy to see you running and racing. 5:40 ks is quite respectable over a hilly course! But 11.5k instead of 10 - how could they do that? Your fitness will improve off a diet of steady running. Consistency is key.
