Broken pc

I apologize for the long silence but the enemy, after many defeats, decided to fight in a dirty way by the electronic war. In fact they broke my pc and it was very hard to fix it. Indeed it doesn't work yet very well but I am a man of hope.....The kick-off: the last week part of the Black Knight Army, Italian Legion, began the training to the Florence Marathon. For now the warriors will be Sir Gianni and the Black Knight, Sir giorgio is the personal trainer. This week the schedule was exactly followed: tuesday 12.2 km. (7.57 ml), thursday 14 km. (8.75 ml), friday 10.150 km. (6.3 ml) tempo run and sunday 22.2 km. (13.78 ml.). On sunday the work out was difficult because of the heat that here is a problem again; summer doesn't want to leave our nice city! In the photo the Black Knight is with his gracious Queen, as usual very supportive: she always helps him to find the right motivation to train hard.The next battle: after a war council the Army decided to enter the Montalto half marathon on oct. 1st. with all the warriors in both the events, so the victory will be complete and full. The BlackKnight, Sir Gianni, Long Joe and Sir Alessandro will enter the half marathon, while Sir giorgio will continue the bounty killer career in the 7.3 km. contest. The gracious Queen, our son Paolo and his girl friend will join the Army to fight in the 7.3 km. contest. Many black armours will frighten the people of Montalto!!!!

  2. Great photo! Future battles for me include the 10km Canberra Times fun run on this Sunday (running as part of a team) and the Bulls head Challenge in October (a 27.3km downhill race). Good luck with your training!

  3. Good luck in this upcoming battle. May the Army be victorious once again! This soldier is taking a leave of duty, to recover and plan for battles yet to come. :)

  4. The black knight prevails! I was wondering where you had gone. I thought that maybe the beautiful queen had distracted you from your conquests.

  9. What a pretty wife..uh Queen you have.

    Thank you for your very nice comment on my blog.

    Your training schedule looks good. I admire the fact that you only have to train for 12 weeks. I need that additional 4 weeks!

  12. I bet all the kids in school love their teacher. The boys must think she's dreamy and the girls want to be like her. Do you think they have even more love and respect for her, because she is married to such an honorable yet fierce knight?

  13. How in the world do you get any running in with such a beautiful Queen distracting you from the tasks at hand? Are you running a 13 mile run for your long run on the first week of a training schedule? Too much?
