Cool running

It has been very hot here for the last few weeks, but yesterday the rains came and everything changed. It was quite a bit cooler for the 2 mile race this morning and it was jut starting to rain as I got to the track. As a result only 2 people showed up, so I decided I would also run this week. In the middle of the race we got a big downpour which included some small hailstones. I ended up coming first in a slow time of 18:43, just 19 seconds ahead of the second place finisher. I t was fun to race and I was grateful for the cool refreshing conditions.

Right knee

After running in the Pohorje winter series in January I jammed my right knee on the decent. I have noticed some occasional pain in the kneecap from time to time. This morning there was a definite soreness in my right knee, but by the time I went out for my run in the afternoon it was gone. I have the feeling that something has finally worked itself out, however time will tell

I feel as though I am getting some consistency back in my running these last few days. Believe it or not I think it may be because of the hot weather and that I may have lost a few Lbs ( Kilo's).

Middle of the month

In the middle of each month, along with a few friends, I try to run for 1 hour on the track near my home. Up until now I have been doing this at 9 am on a Sunday morning, but since the weather has become much warmer we are now starting at 8am. Yesterday I was in Zagreb with some friends who swam in an open water 5km race while I ran 5km. I really enjoy a nice easy run with friends on a track, though I have noticed that for the last week my right Achilles has been a little sore.
