Arrived in Rome with Tracy to visit Delaney for the week - got into town around noon and did at least 5 miles of walking - very little sleep on the plane - so no actual running today.

AM - a little over 6 miles in La Spezia this morning.  Did some exploring, got lost, took a tumble on some cobbles, skinned my knee and elbow - survived.

AM - meandering around Florence in the morning - happened to get on a bike path. Had no idea where I was; and then I ended up right front of our hotel at exactly 5k.  Could have continued for some more distance - but felt like that was fine for today.

AM - Nice run today in Florence.  Ventured outside the city a bit for a very scenic route.  Bit of a climb and then a descent on cobbles - so rather slow, but enjoyable nonetheless.

AM - a little over 6 miles on our last morning in Italy.  Did a run along the Tiber and to the Coloseum and back past the Vatican.  Nice run before a long flight.

Day off - no running today.  Too much work around the house and church - and starting back to work tomorrow from vacation.

AM - 6 miles on the golf course with Finn before work in the dark.  Wore the Vibrams but developed a blister on the instep of my left foot so ended up taking them off and running barefoot on the grass for the last 3/4 of a mile.

PM - 7 miles outside at lunchtime.  Much warmer weather now - going to need some time to acclimate.  Good effort though slow on a hilly course.

AM - 4 miles easy/moderate with Finn before work.

PM - 5 more at lunch on the treadmill whilst watching the Boston Marathon.  I ran a good bit faster than normal - probably due to watching it as I was running.

AM - was not planning to run, due to early meetings, but Finn really wanted me to take him out - so just 2 miles.  Expect to run later. 

 

PM - 8 miles on the treadmill.  Really good run - quick pace.  Finished the last 2 miles under 7 min pace.  Unplanned - just felt really solid and relaxed.

AM - 10 miles, perhaps less, no watch - just wandering around some neighborhoods with Finn early this morning.  Wanted to get the run in early as it is supposed to be quite warm later today.
