Getting back

This weekend I think I started to get my running training back into some kind of shape. While I was in Zagreb for a visit, I had a nice 45 minute run on both Saturday and Sunday. When I got back to Ljubljana I think one of my roommates got inspired and suggested we go for a 1 hour run this evening, There is a nice loop we can run that takes about 28 minutes, so the plan was to run it twice. However after the first loop I was not feeling so great, since I had been out late the night before and didn't get so much sleep. So I made a short cut and rejoined him later in the loop, but still ran 47 minutes. I also heard of a 24 hour race in Italy in September that I am thinking to Run, don't know all the details yet, but it is something to aim for.

New discoveries.

I ran for almost 1 hour this morning in Ljubljana and it was a mix of outskirts of the city and almost countryside.. I feel like I am running at a comfortable pace and my form feels good. I have a slight problem with an old back injury, but I can live with that. Where is your friendly neighbourhood Chiropractor when you need him. Anyway I will sort that out.

Something new.

Over the last couple of winters I have run in Flushing Meadow Park and out to Shea Stadium and the new Citi field Stadium. I would take photo's of the progression of the new stadium and the end of the old stadium. Well one of my photo's of the new stadium has been selected to be included in the 7th and latest edition of the Schmap city guide. It can be see at the following link;

Changing skin

For the last 2 weeks or so the skin on the bottom of my feet has been peeling of . This is normal for me after a multi day race. It is like the old skin of the race is changing into a new one.
On Monday I did my longest run for a few weeks and the next day was shorter, but then I started running longer each day and also running with more pace. I am feeling as though my form is good again, actually I thought my from was good on the Harmony run, but it's hard to tell when you are carrying a torch. Anyway I am happy with my running.

Getting back in the groove

My running has been quite limited for the last week, but now that I am back home in Ljubljana I can be a bit more focused. I have 2 or 3 running routes worked out and these give me good variety. There is a 100k race coming up this weekend in Vienna, Austria, that a few people have asked me to go to. I don't think I am quite ready for 100k, a 50k would have been nice. I also will probably be in Croatia this weekend taking care of some business. It is nice though to look at some different races around Europe that it is now much more easier to think about running. There is a whole new playing field out there for me now.

One to watch

Each summer I am part of the crew at the Self- Transcendence 3100 mile race. this year I will not be there, well maybe I will be there in spirit. I am posting a link to a youtube video of the only female runner ever to run the race. If the link does not work just go to youtube and type in The spirit of the runner and feel it!
