After walking 12.2km today according to my Apple Watch, I went out for a run before dinner. Nice route finishing alongside the Seine.
Back in the UK and only my first run commute this month, sadly.
Google Maps’ satellite view confused me when I got outside, hence struggling to find my intended route, but once I was away it was a warm run this evening.
We stopped for lunch 24km and for the second time in a row, the Garmin Edge 810 froze and had to be rebooted, losing all the data. One for the bin, I think, and use the fenix 3 instead. Useless and expensive pile of junk.
The weather forecast was wrong: it was warm, bright and very windy! Not sure running a 5k race yesterday was wise
Official chip time was 2:31:50
Our warm-up run for tomorrow’s Half Marathon and a new PB for me. My chip time was 28:04.
So with less than a week before the Milton Keynes Half Marathon, my left ankle was dodgy with the tendons(?) pulling tight at the front, so with discretion being the better part of valour I pulled up short.
And I’ve lost a massive 0.1kg since Saturday!
Weather was very changeable so I dressed for cold and wet and it was cold and dry, so I overheated a little. Not too bad time though for me.
So last night, whilst idly checking to see when we could enter the ballot for places for the 2017 London Marathon, I pondered about when the ballot would open for Berlin 2017, before realising that 2016’s hasn’t taken place yet! We were unlucky in that we didn’t get into this year’s Berlin Marathon, having successfully(ish) completed it in 2015 but I saw that they also run a half marathon in the first week of April.
Which made me think that Paris have theirs in April too, so I hopped over to the Paris Marathon website and saw that registrations are open. A few clicks and oops! It seems I’ve successfully entered, so on Sunday 9th April 2017, we’ll be in Paris wondering what the hell we’ve done!
