About individual activities

On Monday (12/10): After Saturday injury, I am still not able to walk properly because of achilles tendon pain, however I got much better after this 13K walk and I’ll try to have long distance walks in order to recover faster and keep my body active while I am away from my regular training. Unfortunately again watch didn’t save the activity!

On Thursday (15/10) Still not able to walk properly! Changing my shoes was useful anyways!

On Monday (19/10): My first run after 8 days of injury, so happy to run and getting back to my regular lifestyle!

On Tuesday (20/10): I shouldn’t run with full stomach, it would gradually cause you serious problems. That’s one of the reason’s I emphasize to have very early morning training. I felt so heavy in the 7th kilometer that I prefered to stop running.

On Friday (23/10): I wasn’t comfortable to continue to run, feeling a bit heavy therefore I stopped. A bit of pain in my stomach (right side)
