I've missed you, but I've been without internet for a whole week as I have been timber rafting in Sweden with my family. We built the raft ourselves and traveled 50 km in 3 days on the river Klarälven. A really unique experience, but tough!
I brought my running kit along, but when we got ashore in the evening I was too exhausted to put one foot in front of the other.
Building the raft was a whole day of extremely physically hard work, probably the hardest workout I have ever done (2 tons of timber, 2 adults to carry it around, you do the math). The journey on the raft was no walk in the park either - of course there were calm moments where we enjoyed the stunning surroundings but it was also really intense when we got stuck on sand banks, stones or caught in backwaters. We even got stuck in a hailstorm!
I wonder if a week with only one run but a lot of other physical activity will turn out to be an advantage when I go running tomorrow after a good night's sleep in my own bed...
