stats of the week: run 53km, cycled 70km, gym 3h

A week of far too much load for someone who still has not recovered from illness.

Following a slow half marathon on Sunday my body reacted by fever and shivering. No chance to run the eagerly anticipated Chianti marathon in Italy. Now the weekend will end up as a sort of seniors' holiday. Equally disappointing that I have to refrain from Pecorino, icecream and pasta tartufo.

Cycling recovery

stats of the week: run 24km, cycled 169km

After only two days at home I was happy about the chance to recover on the sunshine island of Majorca from the tough Bolivian days. Weather was glorious and we were able to cycle some of the grand routes of the island. I dont know a better place to ride your race bike.

Now it's back to running as there are only 10 days to another (slow) marathon.
