Happy Monday hot Milan! Ready to confront another work week? I am! Determined, charged and ready for new challenges and achievements – one step at a time!
If you were following me on Twitter and Instagram you already knew that went running a mile with Nike Training Club Milano to show how fast I am. and I must say, it went even better than I thought. Hadn’t been able to run more than a month not even talking about speed running, so was pretty nervous but all good that ends good and just jump right in and confront my fears just by Doing it without too much thinking! (too much thinking kills the courage, so I am not hesitating but just taking opportunities and accept challenges when they comes in front of me without much consideration if the feeling is right.)
It was such a great pleasure to meet and see so many smiley, active and positive people at one place and coming together to do something fit and just enjoy their Thursday evening sporty not by regular bar hopping and Milan apperetivos, even though there was a bar – a juice bar with a freshly squeezed smoothies to recharge our batteries after our mile along the Naviglio.
Already can’t wait for the next adventure to share with you guys!
Actually this event was to introduce the mile counting system also in Italy (Europe) as the major part of the world is using as a mesuring ssytem already and a good way to introduce the new – super fast line of Nike Air Zoom line.
Zoom Elite 8
I know I should have the serious, determined cold as ice face, but was too excited so bear the grin, Nike.
You cannot miss me nor my pink shorts as made quite a contrast together with the fluo shirt! No road kills for this running lady!
Actually I think due to the heat (outside was 32°C despite it was already 20:00) my app showed that I have been running quite slow. it even said I was running 18 min.. quite impossible if my warm up mile was only 9 min.. so unfortunately cannot determine exactly how fast was my run but I know it was around 7min.
All set for the finish line and we were racing in groups of 4 leaving every 30secs.
Of course couch was showing a good example as well to greet the guys finishing the race and take them all back together!
..heading back to our starting point where we had a possibility to have a dash of 30m and test how fast we are!
while some competed, others could have a refreshing smoothy or a fruit to recharge our batteries and energy.
with couple of bruises, ( because my shoes were slightly too small, as later turned out and had bruised my heels (despite the pain finished the race as fast as I could anyway – no pain, no gain!) some mosquito bites, (because when you stop running at Naviglio they just attack you and eat you alive like little zombies) but completely happy I headed home to get ready for the next challenge Nike will bring me! Can’t wait!
p.s. as a lovely touch aturday received an email with my Speeding ticket and picture! well done! putting this in my file as challenges completed!
p.s.s. Special Thanks to my lovely bf that supported me in this event for 360° and came despite he couldn’t run. (IOU)
