New Entries

Black Knight Army Virtual Race. So far Lady Karen (Australia), Johann (South Africa), Lady Molly (USA) and Lady Katie (USA) have already run the virtual race: thank you, all the details in the dedicated post.
New Entries. Examined the applications and valued the impressive curricula, the Black Knight appointed Ladies the kind runners Jill and Katie ! Congrats Lady Jill and Lady Katie. Further new entries (Sirs and Ladies) are appreciated.
After the Fiumicino Half Marathon. The race left some problems, the operated leg hurts along all the external part but the physio said that this is not a big problem and I can run without pushing. For this reason I took it easy; this week I swam twice (1400 and 1500 meters) and I made 3 slow workouts: 10.3 km, 11.5 km and 12.4 km. I have all the time to prepare the 2 or 3 races in december. Here are other photos of the race.



Weather. Here the weather is rainy, this is the second week with all this rain but nothing can stop the Black Knight Army! Even if I have to admit that the good temperature (never too cold) permits to avoid the "dreadmill". How is the weather there? Do you succeed in making good workouts outside?

  3. So many photos. Did the paparazzi follow you around because you're so famous? It's raining over here too at the moment and looks like it might continue for most of the week.

  7. Good to see so many entries for the virtual race! Great race pictures! Our weather is really getting warm now as summer is very close. Have a good week!

  8. Great pictures of you.
    Our weather turned wet, which is a mixed blessing. We need rain so we can waste water during the summer but it makes outdoor workouts more challenging. So far I am managing though. I really don't like dreadmills.

  9. Love the pictures!!!
    I thought of you while running in the Living History Farms Race! I wore black and ran through the woods like a barbarian!! Can that count as my virtual race??
    Hope you are well,
    Cheers,
    Angie

    Sorry I didn't partake in the virtual race - you know I'm not really running much and my head is in the toilet with all this down time - blah. But I am running a bit better, so fingers crossed!! Love all your great pictures!

    Have something for you, will get it in the mail this week...hopefully will make it by Christmas!!

  12. Love your pictures!! I like the last one the best!

    I am doing my virtual race tonight after work...I am running in the dark so I have a sneak attack on the enemy. :) :) I will be wearing some reflective clothing but it is of a color that the enemy is not expecting to see, so I can still sneak up and conquer!

  14. Glad to see you are having success with your virtual race. Nice photos you shared with us here! Although I haven't been running much lately, the -20 to -25 celsius temperatures don't stop me from hiking and snowshoeing.

    I run outside year round, even in the snow. I feel more hard core that way! : )
