The weather sucks at the moment. We had two awesome days full of summer, and both of them were spent in the office. The other days: rain, storm, rain, thunder, rain. Don’t get confused by the Hamburg Half pictures, it rained in the morning of the race. Running in cold rain in June isn’t fun, y’all!
Week 5 (17. June- 23. June 2013):
by the way: add me on dailymile
Tuesday: 9 km in 59:26 @ 6:36 min/km
(Planned: 60 minutes easy)
Wednesday: 3.52 km in 33:23 @ 9:30 min/km
I went for a run/walk with my Mom and planned to do my interval training later. However, it stormed and rained and my legs felt super tired.
(Planned: 45 minutes with 3x4min tempo)
Saturday: I was supposed to go on a short run, but due to the back pain, I decided against it.
(Planned: 20-30 minutes)
33,81 km or 3 hours, 28 minutes of running.
No other workouts.
Ups of the week:
- First half marathon in under two hours! Whoop whoop!
Downs of the week:
- Missing two planned runs. However, it’s not really a “down” because I think I wouldn’t have run the half marathon in that time if I had done all the runs. Sometimes, it’s better to rest.
To sum up my feelings: There were ups and downs this week. Not being able to move two days before a goal-race was difficult. Better now then two days before Berlin.
15 weeks until Berlin…
