Summer in Civitavecchia means beach, swimming and running - yes working also and this is another boring story - but now the lombago doesn't allow to swim and run. Tomorrow I will come back to my doctor, he is a runner too, to understand what I can do. Last week I only ran 8,5 km and swam 15 minutes!!! Too much pain. In the meantime I am going to the ancient roman thermal baths and the hot sulphur water is a good medicine:
To forget this trouble my wife Daniela had a romantic dinner with me at the Sunbay Park Hotel where we could enjoy a beautiful sunset; the pic is not so good because it was taken by the mobile phone:
However july and august are not the best months to race here because all the events are organized in little hilly towns and the routes are full of downhill under a hot sun. After a war council, Sir Giorgio and I took the decision to begin the race season in september.
As Mark Knopfler knew of my injury decided to come to Rome for a concert. He was very kind and I accepted his homage. On tuesday the Black Knight will receive Mark at the Auditorium of Rome. The pics of the show will be available next sunday.
The fearless leader is injuried but he is sure that all of you are ready for a week of glory and victories.
