- Christmas :-)

After an easy and enjoyable run I celebrated my Christmas together with
David and Lorraine; had a good dinner and a telephone call back to my
family up in cold Scandinavia :-)

As I mentioned in the last report I am amazed that they have come out here
to spend their Christmas together with me - turning what could have been a
bit lonely Christmas in a motel room - into a cosy event with comparisons
of how we celebrate up in Scandinavia and how down here in Australia
(25.Dec, unlike our 24.Dec for starters) :-))

24. December running advice:

- Probably the most important of my own principles are always to continue
to gather knowledge of how the body (and mind :-) responds to training.

By knowing in detail how you respond to for ex. overtraining or your
pre-injury signals you can become able to detect a beginning injury long
before it develops. And have knowledge of how you best steer clear of it
in time.

- actually a big part of the "everyday of world run" is to pick up the
many signals of the body responses and take preventive measures (example:
reduce km, change running speed, run on other surface, emphasise
stretches, get new shoes, alter running style, sleep patterns, change of
food, ... )
- up to 5-10 days before an injury would appear.

Well, that was the advices I could think of this month. Hope you enjoyed
