New horizons

Still very disappointment about not being able to run last sunday.. I even tried to convince myself I felt good enough yesterday for a 10k race and that “if only the sickness wouldn’ve come a day earlier I would’ve been able to run”.. Well, not very close to the truth. I did run a very easy run during lunch and let’s just say that stomach wasn’t totally up for it. I managed, and it did feel better as time went by, but not completely comfortable – I can say that.

Today I’ve been at home. My wife have caught some kind of torticollis. That meant that I had to try to occupy the kids while running. Now when the snow and ice is totally gone our local sport stadium is a wonderful choice for interval runs. So I put the kids in front of a favorite movie (bad parenting) and went down there and did my 400 meter intervals. Since I still plan for a race next weekend in Örebro I think redoing last week of the program is for the best. That is also what Coach have told me to do earlier under the same circumstances.

The race I will try to do this Saturday is an 8k race (actually 7777m) in Gothenburg. 😀
Info in Swedish

The intervals felt ok. No troubles with the stomach – only issue was the hard wind which whipped me back at the last long side of the stadium. But I’m satisfied 😀

But it’s obvious when looking at my rest recovery hr below that I’m not fully recovered from the stomach flu. I has been much lower earlier.

    1. Hi Cursor!

      It went.. not enirely awful 😉
      I managed to keep the pace below 4 min/km all through, but I could have done a lot better.
      At the two last km’s I tried to push it to cut down on the time. I came to retchings twice while running
      and choose to slow down to a pace where I were right below it instead :S

      End time was 30:46 on 7777 meters.

      best rgds,
