Still fit by the Alps

stats of 3 recent weeks: run 92km, cycled 380km, gym 4h

Recent weeks were far from a structured training. A hot and sunny week on Majorca let us keep to cycling the island's pretty hills and we had one day of extraordinarily enjoyable walking. The spectacular climb up Torrent de Pareis from Sa Calobra to Escorca was a memorable experience.

After these weeks with very little running I started today's local half marathon with big questions on my capabilities. Luckily I found the perfect pacemaker to follow for the whole distance. Finally he was tougher than me but I was very happy to finish after 1:38:51 which in fact was my age graded second best half marathon ever. The transalpine performance effect still seems to operate.
