The Black Knight is back
(Gioconda, the lovely Queen's lady cat)
After a long week without posting, the Black Knight is back. He was very busy to defend the borders of the Black County and to check the work in progress of the new shining armours to wear in the next future (very nice black t-shirts and singlets).
Now the final battle of Rome is very close and the training is serious and hard even if the proud Knight has to face some wounds. During the last week on tuesday he ran 11.6 km (7.2 m) tempo run, thursday 12 km. (7.4 m) of speed-work on the treadmill because of the bad weather, friday 12.2 km. (7.6 m) recovery run and sunday afternoon 30.4 km. (18.9 m).
The Sunday long distance run was source of a Black Government crisis: the Black Knight was escorted until the 20° km (12.4 m) by Sir giorgio and after ran alone in the black night wearing his black armour. The lovely Queen didn't know that her Knight had such long committment and when he came back home full of glory she, terribly worried, was handling the Black Knight's cellular phone to find a way to understand what happened, trying to call the usual running mates of the hero.
