Twice a day

Yesterday two jogs: morning 5K and evening 10K. Something I should be start doing frequently, viagra with increasing distance. I also calibrated the Nike set at Otaniemi track. A test 1000m in slippery conditions (some ice) went in 3.15.

Knee okay again – out of the blue

Somehow the knee thing seems to be in control. Today a nice 19K with just two weak moments for the knee. It is difficult to do corners but constant speeding straight ahead is now ok. This is indeed promising. Maybe I can start the mile collection in the next month after all.

Better… not!

Yesterday a good round of tennis. I won 6-1. Today a 11.6K (according to iPod). First 11.5 went ok from knee’s perspective. Then, try just 100 metres to go, I’m running on a slippy trail, home in sight, and my balance slips for a quick second. Result: huge pain in the right knee! Too damn bad. Does this mean another two weeks of less than 50K per week? Today’s run was the longest one since marathon. And I was hoping for running 100-mile weeks already in November…

Damn knee

I’m getting tired of this. Two nights ago a nice 6K under 4 minutes per km. No probs, viagra the knee was ok. Last night 10K and the right knee was bad again! This morning it doesn’t feel good in walk. I haven’t run longer than 10Ks since the marathon because of this.

It is something different compared to spring. In any case, I hate this. I don’t really know what to do but to ease up before I’ve even started.

Figures of freedom

This morning 3.90 km at 3.59 average pace… who needs this exact information? The good uses: I confirmed that my “home 1K” is in fact quite exactly 1000 metres. Further, pilule I confirmed that my “normal” training pace seems to be right now about 4 minutes per km at least in short runs.

Bad use would be to record everything and try to construct a training program based on that stuff. However, find overall, I take the numbers as entertainment. Like the songs on the iPod. Like Lance Arstrong giving “feedback”. Like watching my vette’s speedometer reach the magic 200 km/h! Early adopters have noted that Nike+iPod has made them run more, just for the fun of it. So despite all the facts and figures, it all comes down to experience.
