The Real End
The Black Knight is back but only as a blogger and no more as a runner and swimmer. Sorry for the long silence but many things happened keeping me very busy or sad …….
Prologue September- December 2015: I had some little health problems and I was very busy at work, so I didn’t update my blog. This situation influenced my runs, however I entered 6 races only for fun: the choice felt on touristic places with wonderful landscapes to enjoy the atmosphere and to spend a different day with my son and some good friends. Here are the pics of the races where the pace was always a little slower than 5:00/km (between 5:03 and 5:11).
Rural town of Maccarese (Sept. 27):
Rome (Oct 18):
Rome (Nov 1):
Natural reserve La Feniglia (Nov 22):
Canino the olive oil town (Dec 6):
Around the Orbetello lagoon (Dec 13):
The real end: On January 22nd, during a workout, I felt on the ground because I put inadvertently my foot into a packing tape. The result was terrible, I broke the roundabout capsule of my right humerus in 5 parts and the humerus itself in other 2 parts. On January 25th I got a surgery and now I have a prosthesis inside my shoulder/arm (see the pics). I will not recover completely the use of the shoulder and I must follow a physiotherapy program for not less than one year. The movements are very limited again and I feel pain inside my arm. Of course I cannot swim at all and the only chances are the walks.
I hope that all of you are enjoying this summer break.
