Last night the usual suspect 10K. Also in the morning an hour of tennis – real amateur stuff so far. My professor beat me 6-1. My only explanation is that I haven’t played for over 10 years at all. Mm… perhaps I get an own racket next.
Little flu took over
I had to take a 3-day break after my throat got some cold. Now it’s ok. Two nights ago I did a 10K and tonite a modest 7K. If I calculated it correct, the first week totalled 40K.
More miles.. but no shoes
Two nights ago 14K via Munkka, Meilahti, Töölö & Ruoholahti. Last night a modest 6K.
Yesterday I also tried to find new racing shoes – in vain. The local stores in Helsinki seem to stock only shoes for runners with pronation problems. I’ve tried such unbalanced crap once. It almost killed my knees. I really need good old-fashioned and light-weight racing shoes since I use them in daily training as well, at least once a week. Optimally, I’d run without any kind of shoes on golf courses but what can you do without a green card….
Espoo during the day
Today I took some hours off work and tried the Espoo central park for the first time in my life! The 4.3K route was a positive surprise: it’s really in the forest with only some distant car noise coming off from Länsiväylä and Turuntie. Total of around 10K, not that hard running.
Recovered from the 1/2
Last night I did 10K around the island. Nothing special. The day before nothing. My legs have finally recovered from the 1/2 marathon a week ago.
