“Run until your eyes bleed!”

I’ll start about my plans for the upcoming races. TheEd wants me to take a 4k time trial in the end of this build up period to see how fit I am and at what pace to go for at the 1 and 2k sessions in the sub program. That should be on Sunday 9th January. I really look forward to that, because I’m very curious about it myself. Last time I ran an exactly measured track was at Kretsloppet in September. After that I’ve only been running on treadmills and after my Garmin and I really don’t rely on neither of them when it comes to measuring distances :S

So.. I will have to find a nice indoor 200 m or 400 m track until then. I’m sure I will find one in Gothenburg.

Yesterday I had a resting day and today I did an ordinary 1 hour relaxed. I ran late in the evening and it was all quiet outside – and very cold! One funny thing was, when I got home and looked in the mirror I got the feeling that something looked a little strange about my looks. Then I noticed that my eye whites were all red. When looking closer I saw that there were plenty of fine veins visible everywhere in the eyes. Strange. It must be the cold weather, but I haven’t noticed it earlier ;D
