Week Recap 062015

I’m back from my ski trip.

Very happy I managed to get one run in, so there is not a complete blank week passed

The ski trip itself was very nice, lots of fresh snow and managed to get my quads burning quite a few times.

I totally missed the craziness over this article: http://www.bbc.com/news/health-31095384 so it’s a bit late, but I really like to share some opinions about it:

  • 5mph ideal pace – What??
    Absolutely no offence to the people who see this as their regular pace, but that is slow for many runners with some training.
  • 2.5h in total
    This seems like a nice number for a lot of joggers, but what comes to mind is other exercise. Say you bike to work or walk your children to school, do you need to subtract it from that total time?
  • only 36 were classified as “strenuous” joggers and just two of this group died
    So basically: much ado about nothing? A group of 36 is nothing for a proper study…

I’m pretty sure things like this will be said over and over again already this week, but as stated above: I’ve been away and really felt like I should rant about this as well 🙂

Tonight I’m starting my new run week with only 1 hour. In the middle of renovating my attic, so I need to divide my attention.
Not good for my 2500km in 2015 goal, but still a lot of time to make up for it 😉

Any thoughts about the article?

Skiing and even some running

A week away on ski trip at Valmeinier, France.
Excellent snow, lots of fun is had.
But what’s even better: I managed to get a run in.

Ski impression #1

After a beautiful sunny day the roads were ice free, so I saw a safe opportunity.

Ski impression #2

Put on my shoes and went off.
6km: 2 downhill – 2 uphill – 1 downhill – 1 uphill.
At that point my hands were freezing so it was time to stop.
Climbed about 200m in total, so the quads were feeling it, but I loved every minute 😀

Running in a beatiful scene

I’m going skiing

Tonight I’m leaving for a week to the snow. Valmeinier 1800, France here I come.

Gone for a week is no running for a week … probably 😀
I am taking my running shoes along, I would really like to get some hilly jogs in a nice crisp air.

But I’ll see where the week takes me.

Probably no blog posts next week, although there is WiFi, so you never know.

Do you like wintersports? Are you go skiing/snowboarding this season?
