Stramilano + Pizza

IMG_8146Bread. Pasta. Pizza. Rice. Potatoes. BASTA!

The food in Italy lives up to the hype. In fear of gaining what I am coining “Fame Fifteen” I entered myself into the Stramilano half marathon. Here are my goals:

  • Run at least 4 times a week
  • Eat whatever I want
  • Finish a race in another country
  • Love my body

I was going to share the link to my favorite training plan I have been using for years but it’s gone. You must purchase it through iTunes for $9.99. I’m mad yet happy for Hal. So instead, I will just make up my own plan. See below:


  • Monday: 5 miles with intervals (4 x 30 sec. ON/OFF) Repeat 4 times.
  • Tuesday: 7 miles with hills (easy to find in Novara)
  • Wednesday: 4 miles (5K pace) or bike/spin/swim
  • Thursday: 6 Miles EASY
  • Friday: Rest (Pizza and Birra)
  • Saturday: 8 miles long & slow
  • Sunday: OFF

  Now how about some real homemade pizza!!!!!

I plan to post my training plans every week. 5 weeks to go!
