Another injury

As this is a bad period for my trainings I decided to slow down and to enjoy my free time.
Saturday, after a nice lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe of Rome, the Black Knight with his son went


to the Flaminio stadium to watch the rugby match Italy - Scotland, but what a delusion, the Scots won 13 - 10 and the Azzurri finished last in the 6Nations Tournment.


About the runs, the Black Knight had to face another problem: a strong cervicalache that blocked his neck. The cure was physioteraphy (one hour every day) and thermal baths. This morning the first workout with Sir giorgio after the 23 km. (14.3 ml) of tuesday: it was a good job, 13.3 km. (8.26 ml) at 5.06/km pace (8.12/m) on a difficult lap with many uphills and half distance through the country. The next week will be better........

  2. Hey - we have both ended our most recent posts with the same line - amazing!!

    In the US we have a saying "Great minds think alike" and I think this proves it.

    Here's to a better next week.

  12. This injury you have is the work of our enemies. My axe is raised, just tell me where they hide and the clever executioner will sort this out for you.

  15. thermal baths?!?! that sounds great! i assume you go even when you're not injured. i think if i had thermal baths in the vicinity, i'd never leave!
    Good luck on your injury, but be sure to have at least one token injury to give you an excuse to return to the baths. i sense a sprained pinky finger?

  17. Sorry TYPO (I hate typos. Somebody had a trick for fixing them without deleting the original post, but I can't remember it.)

    Anyway, what I said was :

    Thermal baths and Hard Rock Cafes...
    Life is good!
