For a few weeks now I have had a set of running gear in the boot of my car so that -should the opportunity present itself- I would be able to run at a moments notice. That opportunity arose on Saturday. We went to the garden centre in Ulriksdal for lunch and there since my parents were with us we needed two runs in the car or I could run home.
I decided to run with a large bowl of soup, some bread and a large piece of cake in my belly! I will most likely never eat that particular cake again – the waves of nausea I felt during the run were accompanied by the flavor of the regurgitating cake… Not a pleasant experience but at least I got to run!
I also managed my come-back training route: the 2,5km followed by the 10km trail. As usual the format was: 2,5km easy, first 5km (of the 10km) mod-hard, next 2km mod-hard->hard, last 3km hard. I don’t have my records in fromt of me this minute, but I suspect that all the splits were the fastest I’ve had; it’s now time to start the Xtreme again… Maybe I’ll be fit enough to do the Xtreme race on the 25th of August. There is one in two days time, but I don’t think I’m ready for that sort of punishment yet!
