Soft on my knees, but I might need to strap myself up a little harder

It snowed all night and most of the day too. Made a soft and nice coating on today’s run. I still feel something in my left knee at some of my runs (don’t really know why, but I try to work it away with my strength training), which hopefully got a little better caring today when the ground was soft as wool 🙂

One thing that nagged me though, was that my Garmin was playing games with me again. It was ok most of the run, but during the end it started dancing around again :S

You know that when your heart rate start jumping 5-10 beats up and down at a time while keeping a steady pace, it’s either time to see a doctor (or maybe a Shaman) or your gear is trying to make you nuts for some reason.

It seems it usually happens when it’s around 0 degrees outside.. Might be a coincidence. Another thing might be that I strap the heart rate monitor too loose, because when I pressed it against my chest today it got much better immediately.. I’ll try to strap me up a little harder in the future 😀

About the time trial on Saturday I’ve been adviced by TheEd to do it on a treadmill instead of slippery surface. Don’t know how to lay it up yet, but… Maybe to start out at 3:40 the first km and then try to increase.. Well, we’ll see about that 😉

PS. Today I bought a new Olympus system camera, which hopefully will be put in use soon so that I’ll get some more photos up here.
