Hiking 1:25:00 [0]

I could almost log this as a real training... My mom went to Iltarastit in Pirttimäki so I tagged along because I wanted to enjoy the lovely weather. I was walking slowly mostly on the paths and roads in my rubber boots but I also did some real orienteering. I was taking some pictures too. I was really tired in the afternoon and slept an hour or so after a late lunch.

When I first looked at the FC relay results today, I felt a bit bad because the girls were 10th after 2 legs. But then I looked at the map and my first thought was that I would have died out there!

(rest day)

Walked to get some sunflowers with my mom. I'm feeling better already but I'm still coughing and I feel a little dizzy and mostly just tired.

Hiking 45:00 [0]
(sick) (rest day)

I was feeling very tired in the afternoon and in the evening I just wanted to get out of the house for a while. I figured that a walk to the sunflower field would be too tiring so I decided to just walk around Tammimetsä ("Oak woods"). I walked very slowly and stopped to look at the many wonders of nature. There were lots of cool logs and the white mushrooms were kind of glowing in the dusk. I found lots of new paths, I've been mostly just running on the main tracks before, and I also went off-trail for a bit. Walking in the forest was almost exhausting and the tiny hills felt like small mountains. I lost direction in some point and I was also getting sleepy... But I found my way back home before it was dark.

(sick) (rest day)

What a lovely sunny autumn morning it was when I was walking to the bus stop after 8 in the morning. The air was wonderfully crisp and it would have been so nice to go for a little jog. If only I was able to breathe properly...


Started taking Ferroforte B, a liquid iron supplement, 18 mg of iron/day.

Like "sir Michael" (who just happens to be working for a large Finnish pharmaceutical company) would say: It's only a matter of medication...

(sick) (rest day)

Woke up in the night (just like the night before) and had to take a painkiller to get rid of the headache so that I could sleep again. Eyes are sore, nose is stuffed/running but I haven't really begun coughing yet. In other words, I feel like crap. But I did feel worse yesterday after work so maybe there's some slight improvement compared to yesterday. Managed to drag myself to uni today (skipped the lecture yesterday). Bought some more ibuprofen and nasal spray.
