I’m having a kind of post-Winter blues. Life is boring at the moment, all I do is work, run, sleep and I’m feeling a bit down about it. It’s time Spring gets here. And I need to take action and do more fun things from now on.
I have registered for my second half marathon. I wanted to wait after my first because I wanted to find out if the half marathon is something I want to do more often. But I had a particular one in mind and decided to register before the registration is closed. I can still cancel before September 1st if I want to. So it’s kind of official now, I’m doing the half marathon of Amsterdam on October 16th.
Thursday morning at 5.30 am I had an easy run. It was chilly and cold. It was a nice and easy run.
Weather: dry, little wind, -1C (30 degrees)
Distance: 3.8 K / 2.3 miles
Average time: 7:04 /km
Average speed: 8.4 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: Glee Cast – Only the good die young
This morning I had my long run scheduled. I haven’t been feeling well yesterday, I was so tired and afraid I had catched a cold. I went to bed on time and decided to see how I would feel this morning. When I got up I felt much better than yesterday and decided to go and see how it goes. I could take a turn on my route and do around 6K or take a turn later and do around 10K. But after 2K I got the tempo and from that point it went fine and I did the entire run.
Weather: dry, sunshine every now and then, little wind, 5C (41 degrees)
Distance: 14.4 K / 9 miles
Average time: 7:21 /km
Average speed: 8.2 km/hour
