Together with a group of girlfriends we will run Naisten Kymppi at the end of May. Which obviously forced me to start running again, after almost two years break. So it’s really like starting from scratch. It’s painful on some days and extreme fun on others. I don’t follow any training plan, I’m not hooked up to heart rate monitor and I don’t have any app to track my runs. I run for fun. When it feels good, I run longer or faster. When it feels shit, I start walking or go back home. That’s it. Three days per week: Wednesday evening, Saturday and Sunday mornings. I stop to look at the view. I smile and say hi (um, yes, I still live in Finland). Smiling is HUGE. Just force it on my face and it like gives me second wind. So in short- I don’t push, I don’t track, it’s for fun. It feels good.
