The Next Battle. On Sunday the Black Knight and Sir Giorgio (without his humble and insolent servant Massimo) will go to Grosseto, a nice city in Tuscany, to run a trail 7.8 km long (half on the sand and half on the dirt patch). This part of Tuscany, called Maremma, is famous for the green country and 3 breeds of animals: Maremma horses, dogs and cows. From next Sunday it will also be famous because the Black Knight Army was there!!!!
Injury update. The knee doesn’t hurt if I run slowly (around 6:00/km – 9:39 ml) and for a max of 12 km (7.45 ml). It’s hard for me not to plan any race but I want to run again with a bib, so I made the decision to participate with “low competitive” spirit, only to enjoy the atmosphere.
Training since Saturday. Running: 10.7 km, 10.7 km, 12.2 km and 10.2 km. Swimming: 1850 mt. This week I went only once to the pool to calm the allergy at the chlorine and to get some advices from the dermatologist: now I try with a specific oil before the workout and a cream after.
The Future of the Italian Rugby Team. Here are the 2 next flankers of the Italrugby. My grandsons Filippo (in photo with my daughter Elisa - the aunt -) and Leonardo:
Have a good week end
