No matter what you do, just do it properly!
Upcoming: HCR and Stockholm marathon in May 2015 and HHM in Jun 2015
It turned out to be a bit more hasty run than intended. I was hurrying for a walk w/ Anne & Ruska to the woods of the Central Park, and the clock didn't give me any mercy. Let this be the week's quick one.
Easy and sunny adventure to new forest trails of Central Park w/ Ruska. My legs are aching and numb from yesterday's interval training but this relaxed jogging in the sun, listening the birds, surely did its wonders.
Oh, so much fun! I didn't realise I could enjoy 14 x 2 min intervals ( + 1 min recovery in between, which I didn't record even though jogging) this much. Well, of course I wouldn't have without all the other 50 or so runners along... This is something I must do again!
HHM group training session @Eltsu
Sunny afterwork run w/ Eerika, and a heavy speeding tendency. We did the first 10k together and I continued for a while to recover. One must enjoy the rays of light while it's possible!
Wonderful group run under the sunny skies! Asics/HCR offered a short run plus technique training session (which I did not record on my watch) after which we decided to continue around Kaivopuisto with a smaller group because nobody just didn't want to go inside so soon! ;)

Have fun. And remeember to take a few snaps for posting later. So your fans can live vicariously. Ha Ha.
wow amazing workout... u really like trekking and run. fantastic ^^
Thanks for the postcard. It should be good practice for sending some from Spain. When do you leave? How long do you intend to stay? Have fun.
You're very welcomed. It's going to be extremely quiet around here for a week when I'm there, as I definitely am not planning to take a computer with me. We head towards the sun next Sat.
Great work, very inspiring. Wish I had that sort of countryside to do a workout in.
Ain't it perfect! :) I sometimes feel almost too privileged to live right next to the great woods filled with awesome trails. But it's only a year since I moved here, so it kinda took me a lifetime to find my way down here! ;)
Good to hear you're doing better; it's my biggest fear when on a long one I must admit ;)
Running 3:24'26.9 Average heart rate 150 bpm, 42.88 km.My personal best. On a gray, chilly day. On a boring 10 km x 4 route of Vantaan Maraton - Tikkurila. It was great to share the event with all the wonderful people there, but somehow the actual PB doesn't make me happy. It wasn't a specifically nice run, although not a tough one for me. It just didn't give me the kicks. Anyhow, it's one of my Greatests on some scale, I guess.
Trail running 3:01'15.2 Average heart rate 152 bpm, 26.53 km.Nuuksio Classic Trail Marathon http://nuuksioclassic.com/, my very first trail running marathon, and it all ended so badly... :( Luckily, I didn't have any expectations on goals, but just had the loveliest time running in the beautiful forests of Nuuksio with an experienced trail runner from Tampere (thank you again, if you ever read this!) - when I went and tripped down to a bunch of ugly roots. And not just a little. I got an ambulance ride back to the area. But if we had finished together (which we would have otherwise) my position would've been 11th of women (4:45). Maybe next year, or maybe never. I still didn't loose my heart totally to trail running. :)
Running 0:43'36.7 Average heart rate 160 bpm, 10.28 km.@Midnight Run 2014 - and it's always harder to run shorter distances! Well, this time I still managed to do my PB w/ lots of familiar faces around. Runners - one happy family. :)
Position: 35th of women.
Running 3:30'23 Average heart rate 151 bpm, 42.20 km.HCM2014 - and I could not have enjoyed running any more!! Pure joy, good company, happy cheering, relaxed feeling and easy going all the way throuhg - probably the best marathon feeling ever!
Ambit showed 10 seconds faster pace from the beginning (total distance in the end 42,01 km) so I gave up of running a pace and listened only my HR, and it always works. :)
Running 1:40'52.7 Average heart rate 156 bpm, 21.44 km.First HHM (Helsinki Half Marathon) in history - Position 32. in women. And it yes felt GOOD, in the end. :) Perfect weather, although a little risk of thunder. A bit too many ups, but then again, there were the downs as well. Too few spectators but hey, we're only in Finland..
Running 3:27'17.6 Average heart rate 153 bpm, 42.20 km.Tallinn Marathon - enjoyable running, despite the awful wind, chatting with great fellow runners almost all the way through.
15th of all the women, 8th in my group.
Running 3:30'35 Average heart rate 155 bpm, 42.20 km.I just remember thinking how lovely it is to run long distances compared to the 1/2 marathons where you really have to run fast. Because of too much crowd I had no choice but to stroll along steadily with the others. The roads were really narrow and with dangerous obstacles here and there. Still I couldn't have enjoyed more as a the weather was perfect and the crowd cheered as we were heroes! :) Perfect!
Running 1:35'20 Average heart rate 160 bpm, 21.10 km.HCR 2012 - smiling all the way through and even more so in the last few kilometres. Wonderful to cheer to all the friends and acquaintances at the finish line - just enjoy the atmosphere. I wish all the races would feel like this! :)
Running 3:46'27.5 Average heart rate 155 bpm, 42.53 km.Me and Berlin - we just aren't compatible in running.. But since this was my only marathon in 2013, it must be one of the greatest. Not only because I could run only 4 months before it (moreover, with pain), but I also managed to finish only 19 minutes later than my PB. It can't be that bad, even though the feeling certainly was.
Running 0:45'33.8 Average heart rate 165 bpm, 10.09 km.Maybe not the most glorious of my 10k's but I still have to share it as one of the greatest - for this year at least!
Truly a great evening event with over 25 of my DNA colleagues. :)

..but if you compare the pace of a half marathon over a year ago, I was able to go almost as fast the whole way then www.movescount.com/moves/move5272282..
Running 3:35'29.3 Average heart rate 156 bpm, 42.20 km.Helsinki City Marathon 2011 - my footpod clearly NOT properly calibrated (showed total 40.48 km) so my speed control strategy in the beginning obviously sucked.. Still absolutely the best marathon in my list so far, what it comes to the feeling!
Position: women's 35th, included all the Finnish championship marathonists whose race was organized at the same time.
Running 3:36'14.7 Average heart rate 103 bpm, 42.20 km.Surprising myself with over half an hour improvement from last year's Stockholm race. Truly a pity that the batteries from my belt ran out after midway, therefore the odd graphs.
Running 1:41'16.2 Average heart rate 162 bpm, 21.10 km.HCR 2011
No leader messages.
Great to have you in this group, have a nice ride with your bikes!

This App indicates the efficiency of your running by introducing the unit "Beats Per Kilometer". It tells exactly how many times your heart beats during one kilometer with current pace and heartrate compared. Less heart beats means less effort to run this pace. This App lets you follow the value live based on last 10 second floating average value of heartrate and running pace.
