Yesterday I have run in Rome the "Corsa del Ricordo" (Race of Remembrance), an event organized to not forget the Italians killed and thrown into "foibas". The "foibe massacres" refers to mass killings by which the corpses were thrown into foibas (deep natural skin holes), perpetrated mainly by Yugoslav partisans in Venezia Giulia, Istria and Dalmazia, against the Italian population, during and after the WW II.
The race was a tough 10 km with many uphills through the district where the survived Dalmatian and Istrian exiles live. Reminding myself not to push hard to avoid other injures, I have run a race according to my current possibilities and, in spite of my pace, I am happy of my performance: the old wonderful times when I could run a 10 km in 40:00 (more or less) are far!
Official stats: Finishing time 55:13; 571° of 836 overall and 38° of 55 in my a.g.
Conclusions: This was a good experience, at last, after 1 year, I have run a challenging race on a difficult route with no pain and without being exhausted at the end. Now I can plan a series of workouts (3-4 per week) to improve my pace and to address the upcoming races better.
