Running, biking, and the like

Bubulle's improvements on running make me envy him. Of course, I'm nowhere close to Dirk's (or for that matter, I can only hope never to be as insane as Mauricio).
I must admit that I have heavily reduced my running. This is in no small part due to the fact that it's not easy to find decently-priced running shoes of the right size in Mexico - But well, that's only an excuse after all. But yes, if I run over 7Km with my current shoes, I get blisters, invariably. And I'm a bit short on money right now...
Partly, I've been moving my preferred excercise to biking - I don't do heavy biking, of course, but I do try to get at least 15Km every day (and as I bike to and from work, I only have to take small extra detours to reach that point - although splitting an excercise session in several sub-sessions is very close to cheating on myself) and at least a longer, continuous, 25-30Km ride every weekend. But yes, I've lowered my rythm.
Also, I'm running less because of where I am currently living - Very close to my usual area, but quite a bit more hilly, and it has made my knees ache every now and then.... And by far, it is not as nice and friendly area.
I do hope to work on this - And, of course, the Debconf Morning Jog is one of the events I most look forward to. Running in Edinburgh was, after all, my favorite and most productive way to get to know the city.
