Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

Would you do it FOUR days in a row?…

Tired yesterday but awaken before the birdies thus morning and pretty well-rested…@3:36am! No need to say I did not go up! More rest and from 6am did some reading and finally went up for easy breakfast. Got myself ready with little energy and water and time for more bike. Fourth day in a row…Is there something wrong with me, Doc? 😉 Humidity in the air, mostly cloudy but when the sun showed itself, it was nice. Got a planned city name I wanted to reach, but did not find it on the bike paths marks. Do aimed for another city. Took only 12km… So had to continue well! (but well-noted for a long run of 24km 🙂 ). From this moment it was a bit chillier, reached a forest area where it had rained recently. Got the hills there as well! Beautiful sights on a lake. Took a pause after 25km, for energy gel and water. Done toe exercises as well for my heel. Grey skies and windy. Not really nice to be in singlet. Saw a deer crossing the road. Poor little thing as it looked wounded and scared 😦 Took another path home, which was nice. New stop at km 40 for additional energy gel and off home. Heard a strange noise and noticed my rear tyre protection was loose. Could not fix it and it was making a great deal of noise! Back home after 48km bike.

Quick shower and directly to the doc to check my heel. Unfortunately the drop-in was finished so aimed to town for new shoes and came back. Got anti-inflamatory pills for the pain and to continue toe exercises. My half marathon in 16 days is more than compromised. Cannot run, not even jogg. It is painful to walk just! So cannot even cheat on this one even if I would have wanted… But at least an additional week he said. Should be fine for Berlin though… Time for lunch (ribs and pasta) and then aiming to the sea close to home for resting under the last sunrays of the day. Niiiice and relaxing. Gave an additional 11km bike for the day.Not bad, not bad at all.

On the top of this, got 2 series of toe exercises during the day as well as ab roller session and less workout. Yapp, you will find the fun in odd places sometimes…

Now time for real relaxing evening in front of the Matrix…and time for bed soon.

      • Apropå deer. Jag hade en kompis på Chalmers 1979. Han ville se filmen Deer hunter med bl.a de Niro och Walken.
        Han trodde filmen översatt betydde Kära jägare 🙂

  2. Jo, han var lite egen av sig. Hoppade av kemi efter 1 år. Började läsa fysik istället. Sedan vet jag inte var han blev av. Har aldrig sett någon examen eller någonting.
    Ibland, dagen innan en tenta, brukade jag gå till honom för att prata lite om den förestående tentan. Den brydde han sig knappast om :). Han hade fullt sjå med att skjuta med luftgevär på rummet och beräkna den parabelformade kurvan som kulan gjorde. Ha ha 🙂
