Hi Everybody! (quick check-in)

Just a quick message to let you know that I am absolutely fine. ;)

I am still in Italy and I am still spending my days acting as a human trampoline, propelling my 8-yo nephew into the waves (that's the reason of my prolonged absence; in the evening I am so exhausted that I fall asleep as soon as I sit on the couch... I'm getting old).

I managed to have my knee checked while I am here and on Monday I'll have my first run since the injury, about a month ago. I'll keep it nice and easy, considering here the temperature reaches 30/32 Celsius by 9:00am (!!!) and I'll let you know if i survive.

I'm eating too much but here the food is too good to resist... I'll have to work harder when I am back to Maidenhead.

Well, in a nutshell I'm fine, I'm happy and I'm thinking of you even if I'm not active on the forum. "See" you soon, lovely people!

  • Saverio! How wonderful to see you. And great to hear that you are doing well and is about to start running again. You have to pop in again Monday and let us know that you survived the run in the heat. Please go slow and be gentle with yourself. Have some of that wonderful Italian cuisine for me and a bit of wine. Ciao. Iben

  • Glad you are ok. Missed you. Good luck for Monday. All being well that's finally my graduation day. It's awful being in the injury couch but it sounds like the Italian vino and food are a distraction!

  • Awww thanks for checking in, I was wondering how you were doing.

  • Enjoy your run! Enjoy your holiday and thanks for checking in - we missed you! Glad to hear you're fine and enjoying your role as uncle!

  • Home, family, good food and sunshine.........I don't really know why you want to come back here.......but we look forward to seeing you soon.

    Ciao, Saverio.

  • Secan....

    Lovely to hear from you.. good luck with your run on Monday, hope your knee holds out. Take it slow and steady.. (hee hee) as if you didn't know.😊

    Still running my 30 mins at least twice a week. Not really able to manage any longer as I run out of route (and energy) but may have a look at Bridge to 10k that Floss has started.

    Take care Saverio, and let us know how you are occasionally, you have been missed.


  • Glad to hear you are well Saverio and I do hope that run on Monday goes well for you. Take it steady and let us know how it goes. All the best.πŸ™‚

  • I love Italy and feel a visit coming on 😊 Good luck for Monday secan, nice and slow remember and just relish each step.

    I didn't know you live in Maidenhead. I use to work there.

    Have a fab holiday. Wish I was there πŸ˜€

  • Good to hear from you, wondered where you'd got to - 7th heaven it seems πŸ˜€πŸ‘. I missed that you were injured so glad it's getting better. Enjoy your run and let us know how it went.

  • Ah, upper body workout! Great to hear from you and I hope all goes well with your run on Monday. Have a great holiday :)

  • So... this morning I attempted the GCR (Great Comeback Run) with mixed results.

    It felt nice to be on the road again, despite the heat, but I managed only 2km before the pain in the knee reappeared ( >_< ). This time I stopped immediately and almost so did the pain. I decided to be cautious and I called the run for today; let's see how it will go on Thursday.

    I also discovered I have to re-tune my feeling for the pace, as I run faster than I thought and intended but, all in all, I think it was a positive first run after the long stop.

    Many thanks to all of you for your support. ;)



  • Fab stuff secan. After a longish layoff, 2K is brilliant! Here's to your next run on Thursday 😊
