UhOh

It's been a wee bit longer than it should have since my last update. There are two reasons for this. The first one I like: we went to Salzkammergut and Salzburg for a short vacation (click on the links for photos). The Salzkammergut-region especially was awesome. Great mountains and caves, including one of the longest cave systems in Europe (Mammuthöhle). We had a great time at the mountains and hiking down from Dachstein (> 2 km).

The other reason is not equally nice. Actually, I have only done 5 runs since the last post: 9.31, 17.29, 9.35, 19.78 and 9.34 km, ie, less than 70 km in about three weeks. This is something like half of what I should have done, and it is because of an intense pain in what I think is my right Tibialis Anterior muscle. My hope is that by less extreme training and by taking supplements for magnesium and potassium I will get it to ease so that I can finish the marathon in three weeks.
