This week’s theme? Running under the Tuscan sun. 

After gallivanting around Italy last week, we’ve since set up a home base in Tuscany, which has been a convenient location for day trips to Florence, as well as some of the smaller hilltop towns in the region.

Oh, and the food is out of this world…so it’s a good thing Hubby and I have been sticking to our morning run schedule.


As you can see, we’re slowly building in mileage each week, although it’s all supposed to be at an “easy” pace (9:51-10:34). I say supposed to because I haven’t really been dialing it back much from my usual pace, which hovers comfortably between 8:15-8:45 for runs in this distance range.

I know this approach could come back to bite me later — especially as I move up to six running days per week and those individual runs get longer — but my plan during these early weeks is to simply run by feel and re-evaluate as training progresses.

Next week, we’ll be back in the States — only we’re taking a quick pit-stop before we come back to the West Coast.

Stay tuned as I round out the first month of training…while still on the road!
