Back on track

I returned from Athens as planned on Monday evening after a wonderful, intense and productive long weekend.

It was a huge pleasure as always seeing my parents and spending time with them. I also managed to see a couple of my closest friends so that was an added bonus. My mother’s house moving was a success, and added to my exercise, taking the stairs at a run after carrying boxes up and down was definitely an addition to my light training. Actually my running went surprisingly well, despite the fact that I was rather tired from carrying boxes up and down stairs!

Now back home with Frank, Sheela and Vito, I’m neck deep in preparation for my Dubai programs – everything is coming together beautifully. I’m also working together with Constantine and Mark regarding my next UK challenge. We’re tying up the main details and should have the date and location fixed very shortly.

As this next challenge is due to take place during the second week of February, I will need to begin my heavy training at the beginning of December. It will be a very tough period for me as I have my Dubai programs, followed by a visit to Frank’s family in Demark. Then come Christmas and New Year which further complicate things. I won’t be able to lower my training, on the contrary, I’ll have to be raising it steadily.  I’ll just have to plan my training schedule carefully to allow for all of these trips and festivities, while still fitting in the necessary km. I forsee a very tough January for me as that will be when the bulk of my training will be done. That’s one way to start the year on a positive note – kilometrating!

Tomorrow I’ll be posting a piece about my 315 km written by Lluís, which will give you a slightly different perspective of the challenge. It’ll allow you to live it through the eyes of the team.
