The Battle of Dublin

(Wicklow County)
(War cemetery after the victory of the Black Knight Army)
(the mythic Temple Bar)
IRELAND: The Black Knight and his son Paolo went to Dublin to watch the rugby match Ireland - Italy. It was the occasion to visit the city and the beautiful County of Wicklow. The final score was 16-11 for Ireland and this got the B.K. very very angry so he decided to conquer the Emerald Isle. The battle was bloody and after 4 days under siege the enemy surrendered.
TRAINING (???): 5 months ago I broke badly my femor and at the moment I don't succeed in running because the muscle over the knee is again too weak. The rehabilitation program continues: every week 4 days swimming (1500 metres + exercises for the leg) and 3 days working hard in the gym. Plus electric stimolations for the quadriceps. I left the "dreadmill" to start to walk again on the road as fast as I can.....dreaming my first real run.

Happy running!!!!!

(Ireland - Italy 16-11)
