#SwimBikeRun – Triathleti si diventa

Avete presente quei simpatici soggetti che la mattina alle cinque/sei vanno a nuotare? Poi tornano, vanno al lavoro/all’università, in pausa pranzo escono in bici e la sera, visto che non hanno fatto nulla, nel dubbio vanno pure a correre. Eccoli, quei simpatici esseri umani che da un lato invidio e dall’altro mi domando ma chi ve lo…

Metanoia by Michael Cheever

I met Michael last summer, while watching the sun rising on the beautiful island of Cavallo, in south Corsica. He was one of those people I normally label under the good vibes only, he really had a positive vibe. But after that, we didn’t stay in touch or anything. Until he was about to set off…

Keep The Momentum

The past week has been one of the toughest week of my life and I couldn’t help but party when the clock finally said it was over. My flatmates and I celebrated with cookies and then finally some healthy and joyous Netflix (finally I finished watching The Crown, soon the review). La scorsa settimana è stata…

It’s not the Gym the problem…

Yesterday, I went to the local gym for a trial with the personal trainer and let me tell you, every muscle I have is hurting. I didn’t even know I had so many muscles in my body. Anyway, I guess this is what happens when you tell the trainer the big goal and he’s like: Okay,…

Run Baby Run: Eye of the Tiger

Rising up, back on the street Did my time, took my chances Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet Just a man and his will to survive So many times it happens too fast You trade your passion for glory Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past You must fight…

Training – My Butt Hurts

I’m not into weight training. Not even into strength training. I’m more into running 35k for no reason and then not running for a month. I’m more into going to the gym once and then wait a week to go back. You know what they say, go hard or go home. This summer I said I…

Trail Without A Trail

   When your dad asks you to go with him for an inspection, in order to pace him, you expect to go on a trail. You expect it to be hard, maybe damaged. However, you definitely do not expect there is no trail so you have to track it. This is what happened to me,…

Yoga

I’m the only one, who is still awake. I cannot sleep, this moment is breathtaking. The sea is calm, the lights of the city far far away from me. It’s all silence around me. I go to bow, it’s pretty cold but I like the crispy air on my face. I sit down, legs crossed,…

HIIT

HIIT is the acronym for High Intensity Interval Training. I have been using it for a while, at the beginning of the year, then I focused more on running, now I’m trying to integrate it in my training schedule. HIIT consists in a short work out, though really intense. As mentioned before, the only work…
