Well, I didn’t execute my plan for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, I felt bad last night and this morning; headache and sore throat still! The wise decision would have been to scrap the plan totally. I didn’t do that; instead I made a new plan: Cancel spinning, go for a swim and then see how I feel.
The swim went well: 200 w/u + 8×400 on 7:00 The 400 splits were between 6:30 and 6:40. That’s 1:37,5-1:40/100. Slow indeed but the sets were swam EASY so it’s not as bad as it seems.
I then went for lunch, a nice sit down long drawn out affair, after which I decided to go on an expedition to find a pair of boots. I walked at least 2,5 hours in my search and -of course- bought the pair of boots that I liked in the first shop! The 2,5 hours wasn’t a waste though. I got some easy exercise and I’m also convinced that the boots I got are the ones I wanted.
Boots in hand, I proceeded to Kista from where I ran the back section of the Ursvik 10k trail. Totaldistance 9,0km @ 4:26/km, av. HR 147.
So that makes the day’s total 3,4km swim and 9km running – Epic? I think not!
