Race #33 2013 - 6516m - 25:31 [PB] - Wednesday 28th of August
|On their last trip they gave me a new PB (src).|
My 127th Sognsvann Rundt Medsols was a good one. I managed to set a 2 round PB, with the time 25:31 (garmin connect). One month since my 3 round PB. My previous SRM x2 PB was from 2010. Having said that, it was my weakest PB. August is my number one PB month around the lake, and 4 out of 6 PBs are from this month.
|Summer, a good period for PBing.|
Less is more
I don't run that many kilometers a week, instead I do have much quality. My longest session each week is a 12-13 km Sunday trip in the forest. Satisfied with the progress, so I don't have any current plans to run much more.
week 27: 40.2 km (1. - 7. July)
week 28: 28.3 km
week 29: 36.2 km
week 30: 46.5 km
week 31: 46.9 km (29. July - 4. Aug)
week 32: 35.7 km
week 33: 42.4 km
week 34: 42.1 km
|Almost a typical week, this time of year. I normally do SRM on Wednesdays.|
A couple of nights ago I woke up in the middle of the night. There was something in my bed. A small lump of something. In the complete darkness I squeezed it with my fingers, trying to feel what might be. It felt like jelly. Too tired to do much processing, I did put the lump in the window frame. Doing more thinking I realised it was very strange that a lump of jelly would find it's way to my bed. I turned the lights on to examine the lump. It was gone. I searched, unable to find it. I went back to bed, not knowing what I had shared my duna with. I did fear it was something alive, as it was gone.
Next morning I found out, as I found a big larva. No idea on how that has happened. And no, it's not messy or dirty at my place. I do shower frequently and change linen once a week. Telling this story I guess I blew all possibilities of ever sharing bed with someone else but larvas. I'm truly all out of karma points.
At Ica Ullevål there is one Chinese looking girl working. Her name is Jenny (I did not ask, she has a badge). She is the most efficient cashier I've ever witnessed in my entire life. While the other people there had served one person she had served five, and all those five had heaps more items than the one the other cashiers served. See seems to be working Thursdays noon, at least. I've seen her twice. It's fascinating, as she reminds me more of an insanely efficient robot than a person. You should go there to see her working. It's worth the entire trip.
A few days ago at Havnabakken, while reading The Stand, I heard a girl screaming. I looked up, and saw a little girl, riding her bike, at full speed (we're talking FAST) down the steep grass hill. 50 meters behind her a woman, most likely her mother, was running as fast as she could, screaming as well. The little girl had obviously lost control at the top of the several hundreds meters long hill. Two strangers started running after the girl as well, trying to help. They all disappeared out of my view, and I never again saw them. I will never found out what happened to the girl. Crossing my fingers, hoping it went alright.
Why I didn't run after them? I didn't believe it would make any difference if I went, as already three grown ups came for the rescue. If you can't help it's better to stand back. But, no karma points gained.
