The past 2 weeks have had focus on my exam before summer. A lot of studies and not so much of anything else. But now, I'm done in school for this semester. Finally!
I'm really eager to start some serious training and become in the shape of my life leading up to this summers European Championships in athletics in Zurich, Switzerland. Getting back to Race Walking after my knee injury and building up the mileage and speed is still my main priority. I feel confident though that it shouldn't be impossible since it's finally getting better and I have started to do a little bit of walking again. After all, it's 72 days before I will be standing at the starting line. Giving me a good 60 days before I actually need to be able to do some serious walking sessions! ;)
So...! I had a little celebration after I was done. A small portion of food, or rice, as some would say (It was actually my roomie Erik that put the leaf in the top when answered a phone call) :D
Another great thing is that Polar have finally started to sell their new flagship product. It didn't took long before I had a pre-sale edition at my doorstep. It was a really good timing, since my old watch, the RS800CX, was really starting to giving up on me after almost 5 years of intense use.
Latest months I have had to go really crazy about the start/taking lap button and the only thing that have been working is a Good beat. I've heard Ato saying a lot of times, "you should really get yourself a new watch", so I did ;) I actually jumped of joy, more or less, when I saw the first news about the V800 in January. It have been a looong wait that is finally over.
I can say that I really like it and it's awesome! Not only enjoying the benefits in training, but it also comes with a very well working activity tracker. It almost works to good (as in I don't like what I see). When I haven't been doing that much except studying the latest week, the numbers is pretty bad. My average sitting time is around 10h30min/day and yesterday, only sitting in my room studying, I got way to many "inactivity alerts" (when you have been sitting for more than 1 hour straight) and my total step count was around 100 steps/hour. That's more or less one walk to the bathroom, one to the kitchen and one to the living room (yep, I counted haha). I was shocked at first, but if I think about it, I'm not surprised.
As a request from Anders, I have to put up how my progress with my injury beard is coming along. Not to much to brag about, but so far, it's fun! Doesn't look very good though...4 weeks and counting
