Making progress with relative effort

The relative effort is nowadays my primary measure to track progress. How does the progress compare to more traditional measures or am I even making progress? Relative effort As you may remember, I’m currently training based on the relative effort in Strava. Strava gives me a range of effort levels for each week and I’ll try to hit the upper limit to build up fitness. I’ve been doing this more or less for three months and as November started, I wanted to take a look and see how

Third time’s a charm in running

My track record in running has not been a great one. I’ve injured myself twice. I’m still going for it the third time. What makes this time any different? History of running My first attempt at running in 2018 ended up me hurting my leg. I never did get any real diagnosis of it, but a good guess is a bursitis. This happened just when I was getting in good shape for a half-marathon in late spring 2018. As I recovered from bursitis, I started to get back in running slowly at the

I’m still here, a status update

I’m not dead yet. I haven’t been posting for some time. The last post was almost a month ago and I’m sorry about that. That’s all due to busy work schedule as well as catching a flu. I’m still here and here’s a status update of my current training. First, I got the flu. I’m not the only one and almost all of my friends have had the flu. Fortunate enough, it was not a bad one. I had a minor fever for about 3 days and after that I took few extra days befor

Workout of Pain – Long Intervals

Spring flu is a thing in the past and I’m back on normal training mode. Last weekend featured a long run and fast intervals of 2 km and 1 km. The pain was guaranteed so let’s go through the workouts. My first week of April totaled 34.6 km which is very high for me. Maybe it was too fast after the flu, but I managed to work it out and maybe get away with it. The workout that we are talking about here, is long intervals workout. This means a fast workout where you run 1, 2 or 3 km long

No happiness for the injured

It’s all fun and games until you get injured. Even a short recovery can be hard when you get to watch others still having fun and training without a single worry in their minds. If I’m injured and can’t run, either should you! Training is easy when everything goes well. You are healthy and you get results from all your hard training. This all changes when you get injured. As you might be aware, I injured my right ankle last week. It’s probably nothing more than a strain i

Race Analysis, Aurajoen yöjuoksu 10K

I ran my most recent race last Saturday. I had my doubts before the race about my leg. On the 5 km mark, my worst fear became true and I retired from the race. Here’s the race analysis of the 2019 Aurajoen yöjuoksu in Turku. The race was a 10 km race on a 5 km loop. 10 km runners ran the loop two times as the 5 km runners ran only one loop. As I walked across the finish line with the 5 km runners, I felt almost ashamed. I’m not even sure why. It was like the race number on my chest s

Recovery test run

My last run was on April 27 and after that, I decided to take a break from running and let my leg heal properly. On May 16, I took the first recovery test run to see how the leg feels. It was 19 days since the last run. I didn’t have a diagnosis of the injury and I didn’t know how long I should keep on resting. The doctor said I could go and try running after a week. The leg was still hurting while walking so I didn’t want to risk it before last week. The recovery test run Ther

My experience with the 5:2 intermittent fasting

Intermittent fasting was and still is, a trendy way to lose weight. I have used it successfully before, but this time I went with the 5:2 method. Here’s my experience with the 5:2 after a few months. The end of last year was not kind to me. I gained extra weight without even realizing it. It all hit me this spring when I didn’t fit anymore into my motorcycle racing suit. This gave me enough motivation to actually get started with losing weight. Choosing the diet I have been dieting s

Testing how the leg feels about running again

It has been two months since my last test run. The leg was not ok back then. I’ve had a feeling for a few weeks that maybe it could be time for another try to see how the leg feels about running again. It has been a while since the leg has been hurting. I was away on a holiday trip for the past few weeks so now it is time to start thinking about running again. I wanted to test the leg before the holiday trip but didn’t want to risk it. Being on a holiday trip with a hurting leg would

Holiday trips don't have to mean you forget about sports. You can combine sports with holiday and get more out of them both.

Holiday with sports

Going on a holiday usually means something other than training. Holidays are for relaxing and seeing new places. I’m telling that you can combine your holiday with sports activities and not feel bad about neglecting either one. This is how I spent the week during my last holiday trip. Holiday trips are special. Usually, you want to see as much as possible of the holiday destination. Going to the gym may not be the best choice in this case. There are plenty of other activities that you can
