Rumours

Training: Another difficult month with many problems. I could not follow any program and the workouts were only an improvisation of the moment: no tempo runs, no speed-works, no long sessions, no races. The monthly mileage was a poor 136.2 km. (84.6 ml). In the first 6 months I ran 760,6 km. (472.4 ml); last year, in the same period, 1341.1 km. (833 ml.)! That is to say only the 56,7%!!!!!
The future: Rumours said that the Black Knight would have not fought anymore and many

(the Black Knight announces that he is back!)

barbarians tribes marched to the borders of the Black Knight Kingdom. What a bloody mistake!

From all over the world the Black Knight legions are coming to help the fearless leader: lady Dori came with her invincible slave Dave (thanks Dori for your kind and nice post!). In 2 weeks will come lady CJ escorted by other 3 terrible Black Knights.

(the Bolsena castle)

Moreover the italian legion, on July 7th, will enter the Bolsena 10 km. night run to frighten again all the stupid enemies who thought to piss off the Black Knight. This is the last picture of a beautiful castle, the next will only show ruins! They don't succeed in learning the lesson. By the way the Black Knight signed up for the next Florence Marathon on Nov. 25.

Have a wonderful summer full of victories!!! (from left: Dave, Dori, Daniela, Stefano)

Next update: early August.

  2. So foolish the enemies .... I too would like to come for support but the evil work holds me back.

    CJ is the most delightful of the legion and I am sure you will be boosted by her visit.

  4. I heard rumors that the Black Knight had been taken prisoner by the Evil Warlord Kneep Ain and locked up in his dungeon. I am glad to learn they are not true!

    Have a good summer!
