Conference

Running. No swimming at the moment because the injured shoulder hurts again. Tomorrow I will get a MRI to understand if it is only a contusion. On Sunday a platoon of the Black Knight Army (the B.K., his son and Sir Giorgio) will run the Race for the Cure: 5 km in the heart of the ancient Rome. The goal is a finishing time of 25:00 far from my PB of 19:38 (june 1992 – 21 years ago).
 

 
The Conference. On 08-09-10 of this month I was terribly busy for a Med Project Event (steering committee, stakeholder meeting and international conference) dedicated to enhancing the competitiveness of port-hinterland systems of the Med Area by addressing three strategic sectors: freight, passenger and touristic traffics. Despite the long time spent in the Conference Rooms I did my workouts. The B.K. is the first on the left.

  1. 25 minutes would be more than respectable - not much over 5 minutes slower than your time as a lad. 19:38 is quick - these days you'd be taking home heaps of loot with a time like that!

  2. Sub-25 is still the goal I'm working towards (though currently I haven't run at all since I've been all about the bike). Have a great race! I hope you get that shoulder figured out.

    Your port pictures/info always makes me smile bc my dad was an engineer at the port district here. It always makes me think of him.

  7. Enjoy the race and your platoon! I'd be quite happy with sub 25 right now. :) We are working on a European vacation that includes Rome for summer 2014!

  9. Stupid shoulder! Hope it's better soon so you can get back to the pool, but in the meantime, don't worry about your old 5k time this weekend, just go and enjoy and embrace the fact you're running again. :)

  11. It is very good that you managed to maintain workouts through the conference - I find conferences very challenging in that regard! (You are probably wise not to drink alcohol.)

  15. Have fun in the race this weekend! My son (age 6) and husband finished their 5K Tuesday night and had a lot of fun!

    Take care of that shoulder.

  16. I wouldn't be upset with a sub-25. That's a very respectable time and I would have struggled getting it over the last couple of years.

    Good luck for your 5K this weekend!

  19. I followed the first part of the conference and it was interesting enough.

    I look forward to running through the old part of Rome. See you Tomorrow at 07:45 am.
