Training Wk 36


Three good runs this week. Well two good and one was kind of shitty but it was okay, even though I did cut it short a bit. I am not made for exercising in the mornings, that is why. I did my third run this week on Saturday, just before we went to visit friends in their summer house about an hour and half drive from here. And for some reason my body just don’t like the idea of high pulse activities in the early day. I much rather go out in the drizzle of rain when it is dark and do my rounds then. That’s when I have my best experiences definitely…

Soon the weather will make it less nice to run outdoors and so I will be moving in to the gym instead. A new gym close to where I live will be great, it is a come-and-go gym where you can train pretty much any time you like. So I will be able to go straight from work or just whenever I feel like it. A short walk from home.

An my wife will be working out at the same gym.

Day by day

5,55 km the Slammertorp track close to where I live. 51 min of good exercise here, a few walks though, generally a good run.
5,55 km again, same as tuesday. Now 48 mins. Now that is a whole 3 min better on the same round!
Crap run had to cut it short even, so just  same 3,6 km. Not much variation this week. But who cares, love being out there!

For the first time since I restarted the average pulse is below 150. A sign the condition is coming back, now the legs need to get stronger, muscles more powerful and then I can start pushing again. This will take another 3-4 weeks usually. So it is just to keep in there.
