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.

  1. Ooouuuch! Maybe the Black Knight should step aside for one, small battle so that he may reign victorious at the next.

    Get well soon fearless leader. :)

  4. Take care, Sir Knight.

    There is none other to lead if you should fall.

    Rest and regain your strength,
    for the glory of all.

  5. the black knight doesn't have a groin! only plebes have groins. the black knight has a cod piece! but alas, the cod is in pieces.

    see, to me, no hills is a good thing. take advantage of the rest. sharpen the swords, oil the armor, dine on fine sweet meats and breads, and above all... enjoy the wench!

  13. There must be updates as the foreign legions are concerned. Battle wounds are inevitable, yet your fitness and recovery must now be on the schedule. The army remains unperturbed and will lead the fight whilst you gain strength.
