A longer skate this morning; weather was lovely. Tracks not in bad condition considering the temperature has been higher than the seasonal normal. The river is starting to melt so the entire route may not be open for much longer. Stopped at Rautuskyla for a coffee but still the quickest I've done this route.
Happy Easter! A glorious morning for a quick freestyle before the crowds of Easter Sunday; tracks were in good condition in most parts. Felt really good and can tell how much my fitness continues to improve.
A quiet track
A glorious morning
First run back in Finland after flying in last night; a tropical 2c but still plenty of snow :) a good run with some hills as instructed :)
A nice and easy recovery ski; plenty of stops to take photos on an absolutely gorgeous morning!!

Nice! Isn´t this the best? These spring ski trips are the real high points of winter.:-) We are going to Iso-Syöte on Saturday. Already anxious to leave!:-)
They are certainly good although at the moment it is raining! Last month the weather was even better up here though. Hope you all enjoy your weekend :)
Haha! :D And it's not even near summer yet...but again, it's not what you do but how you do it! ;) Looking superb! You are sure to feel very confident with this base.
Yes you're right; the temp up here was 10c so it was relatively easy to make it feel really hot :)
Must admit I'm feeling confident however Transvulcania is probably going to be my toughest challenge yet so I'm not taking it lightly :)
Nice Race and a good time! Congratulations
Thanks Brad, it was probably my best so far :)
congrats on PB. And on sand. Wow.
Thank you :)
Trail running 7:08'15.1, 57.30 km.CTS Northumberland Coastal Ultra; first race since September! Felt good up to the marathon distance but lost a little on the later section. Broke my Marathon PB by 37 minutes (4:58) so very happy with that. Overall a good race with a lot of running on sand.
Trail running 3:56'51.6 Average heart rate 163 bpm, 32.16 km.Ashmei 29km trail race which turned out to be 32km due to going off route at one point!! Started in horrendous weather with really heavy rain but got better. Trails were very wet underfoot but that was to be expected. This is the longest run so far and I really enjoyed it although I did suffer somewhat towards the end. Really pleased with coming 31st out of 88.
Trail running 1:55'44.7 Average heart rate 180 bpm, 18.05 km.Kentmere 17k (although my Ambit measured 18!!), a hot day with a nice breeze blowing. As can be seen from the graph there was a lot of climbing. Seemed to be a very fast paced race. Trails were a little wet but generally OK. This race does have a 'sting in the tail' which is a climb about 1.5kms from home. For the first time ever I got cramp in both calfs about 500m from the finish but that was probably caused by the fact I only landed back in the UK late on Thursday night. Happy enough with my time but sure I will go quicker at Grasmere next week!
Trail running 1:47'51.9 Average heart rate 174 bpm, 16.71 km.The first ever Grasmere Gallop 17km race; certainly through stunning scenery with several hills to climb! Weather was very hot which made it even more challenging. I took almost 10 minutes off my time from last week although it was 1km shorter; certainly happier than last week. Waiting for my race position as I type!
Trail running 1:25'44.9 Average heart rate 178 bpm, 13.19 km.Borrowdale 13km trail run. Weather conditions were ideal however after the torrential rain on Saturday the trails were wet which made it interesting to say least! Once again I was taken with the pack and went too fast too early and paid for it later. The hill into the forest was a real killer! Have to be pleased with 34th out of over 90 starters. Best result so far but still have work to do especially on my hills.
Crosscountry skiing 1:25'44.1 Average heart rate 165 bpm, 14.66 km.Final skiing move of this season :(
Went out by myself skating and really enjoyed myself. The weather was superb and snow was in excellent condition, what more could I want!! Skating technique has really improved over the last 10 days and I may have to purchase a pair of roller skis for the summer :)
Crosscountry skiing 3:11'04.5 Average heart rate 154 bpm, 37.09 km.Another gorgeous day!! Slightly slower speed but as it was a lot longer than normal I'm OK with that!! Tracks were hard going at the start but got better as the temperature warmed up. Not too busy but that was probably because I was away from the village. Really enjoyable, felt a little tired towards the end but that was understandable. Oh yeah this was my 900th move too :))
Scuba diving 0:38'00.
Trail running 0:55'25.1 Average heart rate 176 bpm, 10.00 km.A great day at the Kielder 10k. A good field of over 500 competitors. Weather was ideal with good cloud cover and a bit of a breeze. After the first 1km it was up hill which was interesting! Overall the course was very undulating and a bit wet. I'd certainly do this event again :)
Trail running 2:56'27.5 Average heart rate 157 bpm, 15.20 km.First time on this route; ground was so wet that at points I was up to my knees in peat! Very hard running due to the conditions hence the slow average speed. Overall it was very enjoyable and will help towards training for 2013 Chevy Chase :) Paused my Ambit and forgot to restart at one point so missed off about 1km which was a bit annoying!!
Crosstrainer 1:02'10.7 Average heart rate 163 bpm, 6.79 km.Felt great tonight although very hot; a good workout after a day of meetings.
Crosscountry skiing 2:42'47.5 Average heart rate 135 bpm, 16.15 km.Set off from the North side of Levi and headed up to Maria-Leena for a stop. Then continued on towards Kongas but turned South and back down passed Tonttula and back to Levi. Snowed heavily all the way but the MInttu Helped with the conditions :-) Excellent day enjoyed by both of us :-)

Marathon multi APP showing: 1) ETA - Estimated Time 'of Arrival' given the current speed and the distance covered so far 2) PACE - your current pace 3) DUR - duration of your run up until now Intended usage: If you run regularly then you know that glancing at your watch is OK, but pressing buttons is probably not something you want to do. I put this APP in the center of my screen (then the numbers are big), leaving the top part for 'speed' and the bottom for 'distance'. With this setting I have everything I need in just one view. The APP loops through ETA, PACE, DURATION every 2 seconds. You know you can add other 'important' things to the bottom part of the view (apart from 'distance', I have there e.g. the time of the day - once in a while I found it good to have). Enjoy!
There are many ways to guide your exercise intensity. Controlling pace is one of them. And 10K time remaining is a great way to stay on top of your pace. The App shows how much time is left until 10K is reached. Set it in your running mode and use the remaining time shown to help you adjust speed and avoid fatigue.
Half-marathon time calculates your estimated finish time for a half-marathon in real-time. This is a great tool when striving for a new personal best. Include this app in your running mode and use it pace yourself to reach your goal.
Marathon time calculates your estimated finish time for a full marathon in real-time. This is a great tool when striving for a new personal goal. Include this App in your running mode and use it pace yourself to reach your goal.
Climb counter is for running hill sprints. After a couple sprints, it’s easy to lose count. Climb counter keeps track of how many sprints you have done. Just push the lap button once at the top of the first hill. After that, the app will count each sprint and show you the current total count.
