Flu and Spanish Steps
I will never say anymore when the Black Knight Army enters a race! Neither last sunday we were at the start and this is the third time in a row. Because of the flu I had to take a lot of antibiotics while my son is in the bed again with high temperature. Nobody of the Black Knight Army went to Rome without the fearless leader! Sir Giorgio and his platoon preferred to stay home as well. Despite the illness I kept on running and swimming even if I was very very weak: 3 slow workouts (9 km, 10 km and 10.1 km) and one time in the pool (1600 metres). Consequently I decided to take a week end off and I went to Rome with my wife to make shopping in Via Condotti (near Spanish Steps) and in a running shop where I bought the Asics Gel Nimbus and a black (of course) Mizuno singlet. In this shop they check the pace by a computer connected with the tapis roulant and the feet with an orthostatic device; after they suggest the best shoes for you.
