Too much for my legs and me

stats of the week: run 60 km, gym 1.5 h

It was a decent amount of mileage this week. Alas, it turned out to be too much. At the end of yesterday's long run of 28 km, I was so exhausted I could hardly move any more. The feeling afterwards was like I had run a full marathon distance!

Now the only option is to recover until next Sunday to deliver a proper half marathon in Berlin. However, after yesterday's performance I doubt that I will be fresh enough to have a good race.

Well, I have to admit this bad long run would not have been necessary to prepare for a half marathon. It was scheduled looking at the next target in 4 weeks: The London Marathon.
