The Black Knight and his son went to conquer Paris in occasion of the rugby match France-Italy. The forecast said: snow and ice and the hotel didn't have the gym so the two knights didn't bring with them the running clothes. What a surprise: sun and warm weather! So no relaxing runs through Paris!
The match was a shame, the Blues destroyed the Azzurri with a shocking 46-20. In my opinion the problem is that in our national team (Italy) there are too many foreigners at the end of their careers. We must invest on italian young players, only in this case we will have on the battlefield 15 Black Knights instead of a lot of soldiers of fortune (even if good and honest professional players).
However during the full 4 days in Paris we had the possibility to visit again all the touristic attractions of the french capital.
Despite of this stop the trainings continue following the usual weekly schedule: 3 running workouts (1 long distance run, 1 tempo run and 1 relaxing run) and 2 swimming sessions (1600 metres each session). I think that the Black Knight Army will come back to the battlefield in April.
