the morning flight. So I got two good sessions yesterday. Same comments like usual when a mzungo comes running through the Kenyan rural areas. Yesterday the comments were “how are you mzungo” (about 15 times) and “bring me to America”. Plus from a five year old who simply said “how are you mzungo, give me your watch” 🙂
I did a quality session today and was feeling fine in the morning. Since I am here alone at the moment I have to take lactate acid tests during the runs myself. But I have found a great way to bring with me the equipment while runnig and an effective routine to do the testing. I used the first two intervalls today to tune into the lactate treshold and then stayed there for the rest of the session.
I am getting some massage this afternoon. Which is a story by itself… the harder they do it, the better they think it is… sort of like driving down here ; the faster you can drive, the better driver you are.. the theory behind giving you really hard muscle treatment is that you have to “break the rocks inside the muscles”… 🙂 No reason to argue against that…
Easy day tomorrow. I will stay here for quite some time and will gradually build up the shape.
All well from Eldoret,
