Before of all I want to thank you for the kind words, comments and e-mails that I received after the incident. You are very good friends.
Since september 2007 I have been fighting against all kind of injures, something very bad (fractures) and other a little less (knee problems) but this one is the worst because is the last and it’s hard to start again a good training for future races. I was ready to race in open water (swimming) and I kept on running regularly but another stupid incident put me off. I broke and crushed my L3 vertebra. The x.rays say that I am healing but the doctor said that I have to wear the “corset” (see the photo) until the end of august. In september I must begin the physiotherapy: massages, light physical training in the gym and in the pool; in october I can swim and do long walks; in november I can try to run again. I don’t know what will happen but for sure all these incidents have left my body weaker and I think it is hard to come back as I was before this last injury.
