And finally I have to admit to myself that I do miss running a little bit .. skiing is still absolutely awesome, but once a runner, always a runner – it is probable time to slowly implement the running in the training regime again – since I now also think my heel has healed. It had started to smoulder a bit when I just let the cross-country skiing take over for a while so the heel could rest.
So today me and puppy went out for about an hour of calm running. Sunny, only about -6 cold and new roads to explore – which soon changed into a narrow fluffy snow trail going slightly uphill. Awesome! And it is of course a joy to discover that my cardio and fitness level are maintained almost intact – much thank’s to skiing.
Tip for runners! Years ago I asked the best and fastest runner girl I have ever known what she believe is one of the biggest contributors to why runners do end up injured – and she said that people change their running shoes far too often! So, I guess that’s why still use these really old quality trail running shoes – and will do so untill they fall apart!
