Scotland again. One week ago I was in Scotland with my son and here are other photos of the trip:
The Crypta of the Rosslyn Chapel:
Flowers of... Scotland in St. Andrew
My son Paolo outside the Castle of Edinburgh:
The Black Knight at Murrayfield:
Training and races. The things go better and sometimes I can carefully run 2 days in a row so, now, my schedule can include more workouts and less swim. This week I have run 3 times (15.1 km - 10 km and 16.9 km; in miles 9.4 - 6.2 and 10.5) and only one training in the swimming pool (1400 meters). April and May are months full of race events: the first will be the Vivicittà 12 km. next sunday. Sir Giorgio and I live 5 minutes walking from the start.
Hell's bells. Yesterday night I received a call from a friend of mine, proud member of the Black Knight Army roman legion. He said: "I have just found the appropriate hymn for our Army: it is the AC DC Hell's Bells, because when we are on the battlefield the other runners must hear the hell's bells"!!!! Laughing I agreed.
The worst race. Until now I have ran 187 races and I remember again the penultimate (Ladispoli 10 k - 13/03/2011) how one of the worst (see the report below) because of the 1500 runners and the narrow path. Here is the picture of the start: see the narrow start, the parked cars and the queue.
Question: What is the worst race you have ever run?
