>Time to speed up!

>It is already over one week from the times when KR train was driving trough old railway in Arraiolos

We did quite much good training in the competition speed. The highlight was maybe night mass-start with the speed under 5min/km and wet and marshy ground. The most important was that all the KR runners manage to finish nearly in the same time.

Riding with KR train around Arraiolos destroy me quite much and I was not able to compete on the POM, but times of the winners were amazing…

After coming back into Finland, nice weather was waiting us again. I just realize that it is better to check temperature before going to run. -35 is too much…

Fortunately weather starts to be smart and it looks that temperature will not decrease under -20 anymore. That is good news, because it is already start to speed up, after long and cold winter!

How to repair a car in the middle of nowhere with internet access but without mobile phone signal?It does not look like Skoda…Maybe it is because of CarSAUNA from the King dinner?But finally Hannu found the solution…

>De-freezing

>Any post already for the one month, but not because of boring time, I just get frozen immediately after my arrival into the Finland.

I can tell you that 160min long run in the -23 can make you drunk for free 🙂

I can tell you that not just sun-bathing, but also freeze-bathing can destroy your face skin…

I can tell you what it means Hevonen hiihto (horse skiing = speeding in the uphills) with Krtek and Rumcajs…

I can tell you what does it mean to ski distance from Prague to Brno and run from Joensuu to Vuokatti in the one week. Actually this stupidity destroys my knee again and shows me red alert light. Fortunately nothing dangerous and knee looks OK again… More about training camp in Vuokatti is on SP blog.

Uphills in Vuokatti, I did not run, because of the knee:

Winter scenery of last month:

Last week weather started to be warm again (around -7), but soon I will disappear to the Portugal. Hopefully red alert light in my knee already turn into the green light and I will be able to run POM 2010.
