August 2015 – Training recap

After some wonderful weeks spent at congresses and on holiday, it’s again time to think about the winter season. August has been quite relaxed even if the mileage increased considerably. When possible, I tried to jump on a bike or start back sailing, in order to cross train a bit. Some days in Italy allowed me to enjoy some beautiful hill and mountain sessions. Just one race during this month: a 5×4.2195 m relay I used to test my 10k race pace.

As usual, you can see all my training sessions details on the SportTracks mobi service.
