I am just few days before my first race in almost 2 years. I started to run again in may this year, with a mere 27 km per month. I benefited from Paulo’s training plan and I trained with more sense than ever. I got to run almost at the same level as when I was training for the marathon. Even better I managed recently to improve my times for 1 km, 1 mile, 5 km and 10 km. Halfway through September I ran 100 km. I am becoming dependent on running for clearing my head and my thoughts. I feel the need of running when I get angry, and I feel the same need when I am happy.
