Living the active life while maintaining some nerdiness.

4x7 Review

| Comments

I stumble over quite a lot of interesting articles and some are worth sharing on this site. I plan to do this every 4 weeks (thus “4x7 Review”) and I will include my own posts, some training highlights and some of my nutrition. Enjoy!

As seen on

Notable past training

I finished the month of June with 139km running in 21 training sessions. I did run the 3000m track race I mentioned in the last review, and boy, that was hard. But the PR streak is still alive, 11:14.25 minutes for 3000m; it was an automatic PR, because it was my first 3k race ever.

Bike-wise, I ended up having 4 rides with a total of 325km. Another planned long ride didn’t happen due to rainy weather, and for July it doesn’t look promising either (there is a 10km road race on July 20, and I won’t do any long ride before that for obvious reasons).

Upcoming training

That’s the beauty of working with a coach again: I don’t know what’s coming up, except for this week’s race.

Found elsewhere

Lastly, a more or less uncommented link-dump of the past 28 days.

  • Pro Triathlete Jesse Thomas (yep, that guy again) trains in the name of science.
  • Runners in Alberta, Canada, encounter a black bear bear during their run. Lucky them, for they have been able to resume their workout.
  • A cool service: Get a nice print of last year’s training. Works with Strava and Runkeeper. I’ll probably write more about Sisu in the near future.

With that, have a great four weeks ahead. And remember, you can subscribe to this blog via Atom as well as Feedburner. And if you prefer email over RSS, subscribe to my newsletter. Thanks for reading!
