today at sunset.. (see the picture)
the IronMan race in Hamburg, has been moved from June 6th to August 29th cause by the pandemic restrictions.
Not a so good new for me, considering I've been training hard since the middle of November 2020, through the daily cold, wind, rain, snow and ice of a long rigid German winter.
The only positive point is that I'll have more time for the swimming.. cause still the pools are closed.. but the water in the lake will be warmer in the next weeks..
25 March 21
it was cool to perform today at Riders Cafe for the streaming event by "Kulturfestival Schleswig-Holstein"
really nice place, stage.. I had good time.
here the YouTube link to the 45 live performance.
(the above link is set at the right moment when I started, in case goes to the 14':40'' for the first song)
there are also a couple of new tunes..

you can see/feel that the day light is becoming longer day by day.It's still cold and windy, but better day by day.I bought the wet suits for the swimming training, but still the lake temperature is too cold to use them.pushing on my daily training, but I don't feel to be there yet.. I'll increase my hours in the next weeks.working on the video of the new single.. Semplicemente Noi.
03 March 21
from today I'm re-starting to push strong again on my training..
the post production of the new song "Semplicemente Noi" is basically finished and I'll begin to create the video soon.
I had a strain or tear in the calf of my right leg which after about ten days finally passed.
Let's keep up the good energy Power System Energy Bars !
We are happy to renew the great partnership with Power System for this new IronMan Challenge !
Power System started to collaborate with us during the last Tour "Not Only A Currency", keeping me powerful and in shape along all the long journey throughout 16 European countries for 6125 km for 98 days.
Now all the efforts will be focused just for June 6th, the Hamburg IronMan !
26 February 21
it took me approximately the last month to study and apply what is necessary to create a mix & a master with ProTools and all its plugins.. Waves, Native Instruments, Izotope, etc.
During this period Martino (Metropolitan Music Studio) helped me so much with advises and teachings.
The process is not completed yet, but I can start to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Soon there will be the mastering process and then the new song "Semplicemente Noi " will be done.
It's a love song.. but upbeat.. dedicated to my wife, who is telling me that I'm not too much "communicative" in sweet speeches.. so I thought to write this song for her. I theroy I was hoping to finish it for San Valentine, but I'm still here.. ;-) not for long, I hope
20 Febraury 21
since I'm dedicating so much time to learning how to mix & mastering a song, I have to say that my training momentum has decreased..
I was really in a good shape around NewYear's Eve.. but then starting to go to bed around 5am and waking up around noon.. caused me a kind of drop in the dedication to my training..
in general I feel more tired, I'm not sleeping enough (cause I still have to wake up when Maya is crying or requesting attention..) and I want to be back normal as soon as possible.
always cool running surrounded by snow in the dark (see an example).
15 February 21
around 10 days of really cold temperatures here in Germany..
it is not possible to train with the bicycle, so I'm using the new "cyclette" that I received for my birthday.
5 February 21
I spent my birthday with my family.
In theory we were thinking to go to Italy and celebrate with my friends and parents.. but still the restrictions of the virus are still up we decided to stay quite at home.
It was nice, and I'm happy to have time to spend close to my children.
1 January 21
we are only at the beginning but there are already several projects for 2021.
I'm recording a new song, "semplicemente noi", a song that I really like and that I will try to make the most of it, maybe even in different versions.
I am also training for the IronMan race which will take place on June 6th in Hamburg, for which I am dedicating alredy several hours a week.
then as soon as the restrictions caused by the pandemic are lifted, it will be possible to plan something interesting for this 2021.
step by step, let's proceed confident
