Lady Tammy's present
At last my wife succeeded in fixing the pc and now I can show the generous gift I receveid from Lady Tammy: the glorious armour of her 1st triathlon!Last week I wrote a list of my favourite songs to run but I think that I must find a place for Mary J. Blige and U2 with their One; to watch the video click on: One Mary J. Blige e U2 (video).
Italy is under a cape of heat and humidity. To run is always more difficult but the Black Knight has his strategy: a technical singlet, ray-ban glasses, USA Coast Guard's hat (yes the Black Knight spent 20 years of his life in the italian Coast Guard, my heart is always there!), ultra protection cream for the skin, one stop at the fountain and an energetic integrator in his hand (only in case).The usual summer route is km. 11 (ml. 6.8) from home to the beach. The first half, beautiful landscape near the sea, is the road to the hell: no shadow and long uphills; it ends at a magic fountain (indeed it is broken so the Black Knight leaves there a couple of bottles of water before the workout). The second half runs across the country under many trees; it is relaxing and, obviously, faster.
Arrived to the beach a sport-drink and after a lazy rest on the little-bed under the beach-umbrella reading the newspapers. At 01.00 p.m. 40/45 minutes of slow swimming to stretch the muscles.
Yes, the Black Knight has one month off, he will come back to the office on august 16th!
