The bird of prey

While the runners were in Rome for the marathon, the Black Knight was running alone near the sea thinking that in the same moment he could be there to conquer the Capital. He felt like the hawk in the picture: a "predator" with a short leash.

By the way that is a welsh hawk and I disagree with his cruel owner who forces the animal to keep still without any possibility to make a little movement!

As I wrote in the last post this week was better, I trained 4 times. Monday and wednesday 2 tempo runs: 10.250 km (6.36 ml) and 11.250 km (7 ml); saturday a relaxing slow run: 13 km (8.07 ml) and today 24.8 km (15.4 ml).

The injury is over and on the next Sunday (Apr. 2nd) the Black Knight will race again. The enemies are warned!

  8. I have been injured as well and although it has slowed me down it has not completely defeated me yet. I hope you can get back to running with no more problems.
