Recovery plan

Av Pelle - 21 december 2008 23:03

Needed to refresh my mind this morning so I put on my roller skis and started off, but felt lots of pain on the side of my left foot. Tried a few hundred meters, but had to turn around and skip it. I have felt this before during skiing and running. Really painful and I can't really recall how it started. Swapped over to running shoes and tried some steps on the street. Yes, better and my need to stimulate my brain with some endorphins was still a top priority, so I decided to drive over to Delsjön and run around both the small & big lake. It' s a beautiful area and the course is rather demanding (up & down). Approx 12 km's in 70 minutes. That was perfect but I had to put in more efforts than normal. My body is still a bit weak after last weekends marathon race and the subsequent flu that still haven't left my system fully. Plenty of lack of sleep due to having Nellie in our bed during nights, also with a bad cold/flu/fever/etc, plus trying to run faster then ever before at work during the last couple of weeks, is a disastrous combination. Some days I have felt that my eye sight is getting bad, not to mention my short memory. Falling asleep at the dinner table and some hallucinations are other bad signs and I would do something about it, if it wasn't for the upcoming Xmas break. I'm sure that I will be back on top again after a nice rest and some skiing up in the winter house. That's the only medicin I need to recover. Called Jan-E to check the snow conditions there today. Approx 60 cm's in average on the mountain and it was snowing heavily tonight. It sounds very promising for the New Year's first week when we will be there.

Yes, the flu has left my system. It has really helped to empty my body from all kind of energy reserves the last 4-5 days. If I remember correct according to some old body charging theories, it's good to clean out and empty your body, before star...

Time is flying in supersonic speed, so it's good to reflect back now and then, to get a picture of what's happening in life. That's why I now and then take a glimse back in some files to check what was going on the year or years before at...
