In a floating motion forward

It feels good to have solid ground under the feet again. Now that I’ve felt it again, I don’t want to let go of it 😉

At today’s lunch run everything fell into place. I had great music in the ears (A mix of Millencolin’s songs, which by the way is a skate punk band from Sweden – great to get energy from when running), the ground was flat – and it felt like I moved forward in a floating-like motion. No power needed to maintain what I was doing. It felt great – balanced I believe is the word… I think that this is what running easy running should feel like at it’s best ;). I’m not an expert, but my believe that it’s a quite high cadence that gets you there – preferably between 90-95 strides/min.

After some days of somewhat milder weather conditions, we were back at around -9 degrees. But today that didn’t bother me much. I just don’t want to get back to the icy surface again.

To get back a little to the Bodyweight 500 workout I talked a lot about in yesterdays post – I usually do it twice a week – but it depends on how tough the running program is at the moment. If it’s tougher, I leave it at once a week. During day 3 and 8 in the race program I don’t do the workouts. Then the body need to put all strength in the paced runs.
