The wounded knight
During the 3 Comuni Battle, while conquering Castel S. Elia, the Black Knight felt in an ambush. He thought it was a not important wound but after the first training (10 km/6.2 m) he felt a strong pain in "a delicate part" of his body. The doctor said that it is a little problem of an (again) invisible hernia that gave the inflammation to "that part". It usually happens while pushing on hard uphills like that. The solution is 2 anti-inflammation pills every day, no uphills and downhills for some days and a special slip. But the second and third workout (11.6 km/7.2 m and 11 km/6.8 m) with those special elastic slip were a torture, so yesterday I could only run 22.2 km (13.8 m) instead of the scheduled 30 km/18.6 m.
In these conditions the way to the marathon is more difficult and the Fiumicino Half Marathon on the next sunday will not be so easy.
