The feast where muslims who has time and ability travel to Mekka and in general celebrate and go to the Middle-East.
Todays running advice:
Nature ! An important part of staying motivated in the daily traing is to keep your runs variated: not only reg. different training types (long-slow, hillwork, speedwork, intervals, fartlek, neg.split train. etc.)
- But also by actively to find new routes for your runs and to appreciate the scenery !
Ps: accomodation.. Nice central hotel. Sport Club provided; impossible to be allowed to pay myself for hotel or food. WHAT HOSPITALITY !!! :-)
