May

May 2013. Stats: Running 144.3 km (89.6 m) in 14 workouts and 1 race. No swimming because of the shoulder fracture. At the moment I cannot run for a little pain into the left knee. I think that I will have another week off before coming back to swim and run. The Black Knight is getting elder! Here are 3 photos taken in may: on the right sunset on the local Marina:




On the left the promenade that is part of our usual workouts through the city.



On the right the bay. Usually it is the path for our long distance runs because we can enjoy both the sea and the country. The scenery is wonderful especially during the sunset.







May 1989: I ran the Maremma Half Marathon in Grosseto (Tuscany). Finishing time 1:35:32 and I was 99 of 175. Few but fast runners: the others!!!
The B.K. is the first on the left.

  6. Age is the enemy that we all seem to be fighting. But in usual Black Knight style I think you will win this battle.

  11. Good idea to have the week off, then the knee should be good to return to your normal routine. Great pic - you were fast in the old days, even if place is 99th! You live in a lovely part of the world, that's for sure.

  15. I think 80-plus miles is pretty good for someone who is injured. :^)

    Your running form (as always) is great in that race picture.

  18. Here's to all of us old people getting back on the road healthy soon!

    I thought of you this week.
    I went to see the movie Spirit of the Marathon 2.
    It was filmed in Italy. For the Rome Marathon.
    It was fantastic.
    Movie folllow 7 runners all different in their journey to get to the marathon and also during the race. 2 of the runners are Italian cousins, the older one is 72! They have a great story. I loved it.

  19. Enjoyed the reading! Such posts are full of inspiration. When I was searching for other interesting blogs for athletes, I came across militarygradenutritionals.com/blog. They write a lot of interesting and useful things about proper nutrition, workouts and exercising. They also share different kinds of research and give scientifically grounded recommendations which should be of great value for runners and other athletes.
