Anno Nuovo, Vita Nova! Slow but steady (…) with the first 10K race of this year, I am glad that I finished it. YEAH – finisher and below one hour. This is a good start for my training plan towards the Roma-Ostia completion.

Choosing this period for a comebackĀ Ā means 7:00am out for a run…uuuhhh…Anyway! Increasing little by littleĀ the kilometres and the rhythm per week,Ā it should work well to get back in shape and start with a 10k exercise race in September!
My first goal is the Roma-Ostia 2014 – it is waiting for me šŸ™‚
