3 easy weeks after Terwa... - by Jyrki

My training sessions have been really easy after Terwamaraton. On of the main reasons has been that my Orthostatic HR measurements have been a bit weird...
June 2nd

Maybe I am suffering from some kind of stress symptoms from the Ironman 70.3 race and added cycling trips on top.
Then 2 weeks after the race I ran the marathon. Now it feels that the added cycling tours on Mallorca after the race was not a good idea... It was great fun, but from an over-training point of view, not so good... ;-)
June 3rd

Now was also the first chance we had with Lasse to review my mobility and muscular balance. There really was place for improvement... 
I got some really good exercises to do for the next 4 weeks. On top of these exercises I have been "allowed" to do 60 - 90 minutes easy workouts.
I also visited my doctor to get blood tests to confirm that it is only over-training... Should get the test results tomorrow.

June 4th
When we get the test results, Lasse will start to plan the weeks for  Kalmar Ironman.

I have tried to take it easy, and it has actually felt really good, but...
I am anxious to start training harder again...

Buoys waiting for some paint...
In the mean time I have been planning our own small triathlon race that we will have on Sunday the 29th of June.
It will be an unofficial sprint race (750m, 20 km, 5km). The venue for the race is Virpiniemi (https://goo.gl/maps/dg0W1). Next year we will be planning an official race here ;-)

Last week I got the possibility to take the Inbody body composition test. Again my muscular mass was on the high side and very surprisingly my fat mass was on the low side... Well, 13.1 % is low for me ;-)

 Visceral fat was really low for persons of my age and height!

The machine did not have anything to suggest for change in weight, fat mass or muscular mass ;-)

I hope that I will be able to start training harder again soon. I will update the progress here soon...
