Another dog attack!
Dog attack. Last monday the Black Knight called an old friend to run together in the dark around the city. Our friendship began when we were in the same junior high school classroom. After 35 minutes, on a downhill, I was running a couple of steps forward him when a dog came out from a garden barking furiously and trying to bite my leg. I stopped my run to give a kick on his muzzle but Piero (this is my friend's name) didn't succeed in slowing down and hit my back with his little finger. It was a painful situation because he got a bad dislocation of that finger, the phalanx had an angle of 45°!!!! A kind driver drove us to the emergency room for the cures. The dog's owner, an ugly witch, said that her dog is sweet and doesn't attack anyone(???). Here are 2 pictures with Piero and I some years ago.
Training. The training for the Roma-Ostia half marathon goes on, following the scheduled program alternating running and swimming not to overstress my left leg. This morning I made a good long distance run of 22.6 km (14 ml) near the sea and through the country. Tomorrow the swimming pool.
Scheduled races. I have planned to run at least one race every month included 2 half marathons.
How many races have you planned?
Rugby. Today England - Italy, keeping the fingers crossed. Here is the short movie of the penalty during Italy - Ireland last saturday:
Happy running, swimming and biking
