WU -> Parkrun
Arrived a few seconds late to Vogrie Parkrun after a fairly tempo WU. Surged to the front, died, and cruised the rest. According to the marshalls who have measured it twice, the course is 5km, although I'm not sure. Lungs still not great but nearly there, nearly certain that it's just some bad hayfever now. A little bit demotivating for JWOC but might be more focussed once this has properly passed.
Not too sure but there's something going on quite deep in my chest, no wheezing or cough just yet though. Shouldn't come as a surprise after Jukola, and a bit of rest is almost welcomed at this stage. Legs feel like they need to reset after a hard few weeks. Travelling home for a few days now.

Quick run down to the beach, hill rep, swim, and back before heading to Helsinki. Not feeling too bad running but felt grim waking up.
That's 4 months of a 5km run every day ended but now feels like a right time to finish what could be quite a damaging habit (to my summer goals). Hopefully this illness passes soon and doesn't last to JWOC much like 2015 post-Jukola did.
For anyone that wants a good laugh, skip to number 4. Haven't managed to do something like that in a very long time... Update to come.

Perhaps the nicest forest I've visited, with Fiina on a really cool trail loop round a national park near Tampere. Such varied, but almost all natural and clean terrain with lots of boardwalk marsh sections which was quite cool. Legs good and had a lot of energy by the end. Some rumbles of thunder but otherwise quite well played to wait for the evening once the rain had stopped.
Tampere has nice terrain - why isn't JWOC using it?!?!?
