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!

As seen on runbikeco.de

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. 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.

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. Thanks for reading!
