An appreciated change on New years eve

Today we celebrated New years eve here. I went running during the afternoon.

It was a nice run apart from the fact that I needed a pit stop in the woods (hope I didn’t scare any stroller off). That’s why my 3rd lap became so messed up as you can see from the detailed data in the link below. Don’t really know what I was doing with the watch then. Actually many of my evening runs gets interrupted in the same way. I don’t know exactly the reason why, but maybe it can be that my digestion has trouble dealing with all the whole food I stuff myself with.

Since I started running I have become obsessed with healthy food. So none of our carbohydrates at home are processed or white. I often bake our bread to keep it that way and even when making pancakes I put in a cup of rye flour just to keep it rich in fibres. Every morning the whole family eats oatmeal porridge and our children have reallly come to love it. Well, there’s a lot to say when it comes to foods, but I really believe in making the body work to process it. Just think on how long we’ve existed and how long there has been processed food. Which do you think our body is most adjusted to?

Anyway, I felt really recovered in the legs today. My back and pecs felt same as sore as yesterday, but my legs were full of energy. I didn’t feel like at 100% capacity, though. But better. A great improvement from yesterday that is.

In the evening I took the kids down to a field and shot some fireworks. They loved it 😀 A great end of a great year and hopefully a great start of a really giving year for my running progress. But most of all I hope everything will turn out in the best way possible at all fronts. But then again, who doesn’t?
