4×7 Review

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 “4×7 Review”) and I will include my own posts, some training highlights and some of my nutrition. Enjoy!

  • Happy Birthday, Blog!
  • Apart from that, not much has been going on. Between my skiing vacation in Austria and this review I spent a lot of time learning a new language (see below). Regular blogging will resume soon!

Notable past training

It’s two weeks until my big A race this year, the Vienna City half-marathon. Training has been really good, I did some solid tempo work (mile-repeats three weeks in a row and speeding up for the long runs as well.) March isn’t entirely over yet, but I managed to get 160km in so far (with 21km more scheduled for tomorrow).

In order to stay injury-free I also added a few PT sessions, which are super helpful. Still, I can’t wait for the taper to start, my legs feel about ready!

Upcoming training

One more long run planned for tomorrow. Then I’ll throw in one speed session next week (8×800) and from there on out it’s going to be taper time.

Food consumed

I won’t bore you with everything I ate during the past four weeks, but there is always a meal or two that was special.

Well, as mentioned, we’ve been on vacation in Austria, and to go-to meal for lunch was Kaiserschmarrn. Rest assured, I’ve had my fair share of it…

Found elsewhere

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

  • I’ve been busy learning Clojure at work, and while reading a book is helpful, practicing the new language is even better. If you are a programmer and haven’t come across Exercism.io I highly recommend you check it out.
  • Interesting look behind the scene of how a single cron-job still schedules Buffer’s posts.

With that, have a great four weeks ahead. Thanks for reading!
