The Italian Hope
Injury Update. Saturday I went to the hospital for a private examination of the injured knee, I was so lucky to be received by the head of the orthopedic department. What a wonderful surprise: he is a runner! We immediately became friends. After 50 minutes of exams he said that before the final "sentence" he needs to check the x-ray of my legs and the cure, for now, are 3 shots - 1 per week - of hyaluronic acid inside my knee. The day after tomorrow the next examination and the first shot. Keeping the fingers crossed.
Swimming. But the Black Knight doesn't give up. I cannot run but I regularly go to swim and I am thinking of some race in the sea or in the lake. This is the work done since my last post: sat. 1800 mt, sun 1800 mt, mon rest, tue 1700 mt, wed 1800 mt and today 1500 mt (because I was late in the swimming pool).
The Italian Hope. In Italy the things go wrong. The economical crises got the Country into the troubles, 2 italian marines are prisoners in India and the italian rugby team lost the first 2 games against France and England. But I have the solution: my grandson Leonardo! He is Spiderman and a very good flanker. There is wind of change .....
