30 Bananas a Day!

It's been two weeks since I last tied my favorite shoes and ran. Because I couldn't. I had overburdened my right metatarsal (front part of the foot) and as a result it felt sore and prevented me from any training that incorparated feet and the second week I could go to taekwondo classes but I am wearing special shoes and my inlays now.

My foot hasn't healed completely yet - I admit and probably I shouldn't have gone for a run today. But after a doubtfull first few steps it didn't hurt and I finished my 10k. I looked at my phone to see what time it was and...2:50pm? That couldn't be! I didn't exactly time when I startet but I must have been 5-10 minutes faster then usual! That's a LOT.

So I ran the fastest I ever did after two weeks without running at all? Why?

Well, here is my theory: Instead of running I cycled. I cycle daily because I have neither a car nor a licence. But in adition to "transportation rides" I went on several short rides with some climbs and long ones for up to 3 hours. I coult feel how it didn't require less actual muscle strength than running my it challanged my heart so much more. It's a little...missbuilt and not as effective as it could be when my heartrate it really high. Cycling helped me to improve my stemina. I could have never gotten those results from running alone.

Besides that I included a bit of swimmig and got slightly more rest than I usually do. It seems to be true that the results don't appear due to the work out but due to the recovery.

Thanks to the people who gave me advice! And thanks to DR who made me cycle :D
