5km recovery run in hotel gym - 30 mins

Hi all!

I'm in Sweden for work this week. Been very busy but I won't bore you with what makes an accountant busy.

I ran on a treadmill for only the second time this year, I much prefer running outside and only use the treadmills when I have no other option. Last time I was in Gothenburg I ran in a forest but the days are shorter now and I can't get out of work and to the forest before sundown.

I tracked the run in my garmin but I can't upload it until im back home so no link today.

Also when I arrived yesterday three different people commented on my weight loss! I shouldn't let it get to my head but its nice to hear. However I have visited Sweden about 6 times this year so you would have thought they would have noticed by now. Maybe it's like critical mass and I've hit a point where they all notice now!

OK I need dinner now, I'm hoping to convince the waiters at the hotel restaurant to put the England game on the massive TV they have.

Any run is better than no run - well done. It is funny you say about weight loss and people noticing - I have been in meetings for months with this chap - and it was only yesterday I noticed how much he had lost - 2 and half stone - and of course paid him due compliments. Maybe we are not as observant as we like to think we are :-)

Hope you get your footy match.


Thanks! I couldn't watch the fotball in the end, it wasnt showing on Swedish TV, but I didn't miss anything; a bore 0-0.


At least your keeping up the exercise. Must admit I find it difficult to run on a treadmill, but outside is just so much easier.


I'm flying home tomorrow but should be running 8km per the HM programme. Lets see if I have the motivation to hit the gym at 6am and get the run done before work!
