Ciao Wendy

Ciao Wendy. Now Wendy is swimming in heaven. She left on June 19th shortly after completing (and winning her age group) the Flower Sea Swim in the Caymans Island. Ciao Wendy we will never forget you.
Another failure. Following the program I made 3 relaxing workouts (km. 10, km. 11,2 and km. 11) to be ready for the race of yesterday. Moreover I swam for 1800 metres in the pool but on friday I felt a deep pain after the run and the doctor said: "lombago, 7 days off"! So no race and no trainings for one week.

New entries. The Black Knight Army day after day is always stronger and powerful. Welcome to lady Julie (Amazon), lady Karen (Aussie Rep.) and Sir Scott Keeps Running (Weatherman). But there are other important news: now we have the Black Knight Air Force: in the pics you can see the brave Aviators' barracks (bat boxes). To celebrate the new entries we organized a glorious pizza banquet (see the pics). The Black Knight Army, Navy and Air need you! Find your role and join them.

  1. I think you're the first person to be given a true lombago diagnosis by a doctor. I always liked that word, though I never knew what it meant. Sorry for you it means missing another race. Well, someone else's army is suddenly peppier right now.

  13. and we are supposed to be able to run looking at those pictures?

    We learn to listen to injuries and take time off when we need it, that is a good thing. Maybe we do get wiser with age

  14. I think that no trainings for one week isn't a problem. Take care! I know that pizza. You bought it near you house. "Pierona" that's the name.
