• Rest days •
Still injured, but that doesn’t mean that I cannot enjoy life.
Wine and good vibes was everything I needed this afternoon.
Now some good rest tonight, and then maybe something tomorrow.
But still, let’s enjoy this Saturday.

• The power of the mind •
It’s been over a month now that I’ve started this project with @federico.caliri_mental.coach, and even if we’re only at the beginning of it, he’s helping me discover the power of the mind during a sport performance, and how many details and facets there are when analyzing how to improve it.
The first test is on November 25th, for Milan’s Half Marathon.
There’s still work to do, but I’m really confident.
Let’s make this count

• Ode to pacing •
I’ve always thought that pacing is way harder than racing.
If you’re chasing your personal best, you simply stick to a killer pace, something you’ve never tried before, and see how far you can get.
Of course, if you’ve trained properly, you’ll smash it.
But pacing is different, in so many ways.
You run at a comfortable pace, or at least one you should be able to keep for the whole race.
You have constantly to check how your athlete is feeling, without let him/her talk or waste energies.
And you have to motivate her/him, while pushing the last few hundred meters.
Sunday was probably the most mentally stressful race, because there were a lot of pressures on Najla, since she was the fastest on the field.
Will she be able to win again? Will she break her pb? And so on.
Despite the struggle she went through the race (constantly asking how much was left, from km8) and the negative thoughts that had her for those last 2km, she destroyed it.
I thought I was in a good shape, but the last 100m she out sprinted me in the most amazing way I’ve ever seen.
This girl is something special
And we’ll hear talking about her for quite a long time.

• Another one •
Another year, another DeejayTen.
This time, without all the BTG people and hype.
But still, amazing in so many ways.
Because I managed to run with some pretty inspirational people around me.
Because I was wasted at that start line and had to deliver an amazing pacer performance.
Because when Najla out sprinted me in the last 100m, I realized that I did a good job.
Because when I was tired af, kinda drunk at the picnic, I was happy about everything.
All I have to say is
Thank you to everyone that contributed to the making of this weekend.
(Also I think I should drink more rakija before races, if I deliver this kind of performances)

• Helping out •
Still recovering, but able to ride.
Followed my coach throughout 36k before NYC marathon.
Still hard keeping up with this machine, but amazing experience once again.
Now I have to get back to running.

• Knighthood •
Throwback to Belgrade Half Marathon, when the three of us paced our Serbian brother.
Still remember that as one of the most fun races I’ve done.
Never take it too seriously.

• Still because of it •
Last weekend I had some technical problems while running, but today it seemed that it started to fix.
Thank goodness it’s not my knee hurting, but still muscles aren’t all right.
I’m starting to think that I should have rested more after Berlin
But who cares
Now gotta fix my legs ASAP and get back on track

• Always stay positive •
Despite not running for only two days, my mind is always up high.
Thanks to this, my knee feels way better, also because of the ice therapy I’m doing.
It’s not a small setback that will put me on the bench.
Recovery starts with a strong mind: with that, getting back is way easier

• Not my weekend •
Here we go again
Knee problems
Still don’t know what it is, but still enough for not making me finish my tempo run.
I was so inspired by all my friends at @chimarathon, and I was thriving for that run, but sometimes it’s not the right time.
No problem.
Half marathon is still 7 weeks away
There’s time
