Painful and modest

stats of the week: run 29km, cycled 125km, gym 2hrs

With the weekend coming closer I suddenly decided to go for a longer run and opted for the half marathon distance at the notorious Bertlich road races. I have always pointed out that any route longer than 15km is a real torture in this place as you have to add a further lap on the always windy route.

However, it was a calm Sunday but rather freezing at -6°c and so it was the expected painful morning. While racing I realised that this was going to be my longest run since October. My legs agreed with a noticable statement during the final 5km.

I clocked a modest 1:45 hrs and was reminded of a lot of work to do until being fit for a marathon in 10 weeks.
