Almost normal life until 5pm

stats of the week: run 3 km, cycled 227 km, zwift cycled 31 km
stats of the previous week: run 3 km, cycled 180 km, zwift cycled 70 km

Having a week on Majorca proved to be a good decision although the weather could have been better. Apart from one rainy day we were able to cycle daily and it was good to meet long-missed relatives. 

My cycling performance didn't bolster me up, however we had fun to be on the beautiful island again and cycling the well known routes. Having Covid tests before both flights didn't make big circumstances and outside life on the island let feel nearly normal life until 5pm when bars and restaurants had to close and streets suddenly emptied.

Struggling against the process

stats of the week: run 9 km, zwift cycled 185 km, tm walked 7 km

Zwifting remains the main exercise, I am happy this is still possible while the calf problem persists. It is a sneaking process but I have to face the development in direction of a non-running person. I turned 68 this week, the oncoming year will show if  I am happy to stay against this process. Around 90% of my running mates at the same age have retired from our sport but there are still a few ideals.

First glimpse of summer

stats of the week: run 12 km, cycled 176 km, zwift cycled 51 km, hiked 15 km, tm walked 8 km

I am back to slow running with first attempts by very short distances on the treadmill. Summer turned in for a few days and made outside cycling possible in bright sunshine.

I won't hesitate to fly to Majorca to get more fine cycling but unfortunately C is still doubtful. Luckily I will get my first vaccination on Thursday. If figures stay good on the island I hope to convince her to go for a sunny week of cycling.
