Weather was pretty much perfect. People were great. Food was out of this world. Scenery was fantastic, and even the travelling there and back wasn't [too] bad.
Managed to get out for about a 6.5 mile run every day we were there. With the exception of two days - one day when we had a rest day all together and the last day when we only did 3.5 miles.
So. No really serious running, but enough to stave off the potential damage of days of pasta, cake, espresso and ice cream!! We actually found a nice 6.5 mile route that went along the shore of the lake from Stresa to the next village and back. So we just stuck with that every day. I know doing the same run can get a bit tedious - but when its only for 11 days and your running past such nice scenery it's not too much of a chore!
As luck would have it, there was a race in Stresa - the week after we left! How bad was that timing?
Now that I'm back though it's time to get the head into serious training mode for the York marathon in October. So.. long runs here I come.
