3 weeks in my training plan made by Paulo from The Real Green Scene. I can see improvements. I managed to lower my 10k time from 58 to 53. I am now 3 min away from my PB from 2014.

I used to live in the capital city of Romania back in 2006-2007. I enjoyed it, sort of, but not fully. I am back in Bucharest, since mid last month and I am now 100% here. Body, spirit and luggage.
