The War Trip. At last the Black Knight is back after a war trip of glory. He conquered day after day the fortresses of Genova, Marseille with a raid to Aix en Provence, Barcelona, Tunisi, Malta and Messina with another raid to Taormina. Now the local people are submitted to the Black Knight's power and justice.
The Battle Ship and the Training. The battle ship is the MSC Splendida, a wonderful cruise ship 333 meters long but with a big problem: there is not a jogging track so if we want to run we have to go to the gym where there are only 8 treadmills for 3.000 passengers! I could not to be stressed going there with the risk not to find an available treadmill, so I ran only one time for 50 minutes. However this rest gave me the possibility to get the full recover and at last i don't feel pain anymore.
The Next Programs. Now I began the usual scheduled weekly program: 3 runs and 2 swims. On August 29th I hope to run the Ladispoli 6 km with my son Paolo and Sir Giorgio.
