Good feelings are coming back


After so much time devoted to training to come back to racing, the first races were a bit disappointing.

At the Swiss Cup races in Campra in late December, I was not able to get good performances.

Slow return to normality


For some time I haven't been giving updates....

The month of October had not a good start. After I trained well in the first days, I was very happy to leave for Oberhof, Germany, for a week of skiing. Unfortunately, the day before the departure, I had surgery to the sacrum. I had a cyst near the sacrum that was surgically removed.

After 10 days of enforced rest, I started to do some strenght training for arms and trunk with the ever-faithful Ercolina ☺


The winter comes nearer!


Hello everyone, it's been a bit of time since I updated. The preparation for the competition season is continuing at full speed.

In mid-August I spent a week with the Swiss junior team in Les Cernets in the Jura. During this week I have used up my rollerskis taking advantage of the roads with few traffic and even "trespassing" in France.

I returned to Davos to train for two weeks and then I went to Andermatt for the Swiss Nordic Weekend: a weekend of tests on roller skiing and running.

From the sea to the passes of the Alps to finish on the mountains of the Leventina


In the last week of July I took advantage of the rest week from training to go to the mediterrean sea for five days to "relax";). I've been in Monterosso in the Cinque Terre where I enjoyed the sea and took advantage of the coolest moments of the day for a run along the shore.

First tests and first "warm" trainings


After a lot of running training in May, the workouts slowly begin to be more specific: many hours of roller skiing and specific strength exercises. In early June I spent a week in Magglingen where I did several tests on the roller ski treadmill. The tests went well but there is still much room for improvement ;).
