60' progression run, we call it "crescendo" here in Germany.

10' core before the run, maybe that's why I had a stitch while running downhill...

Good for marathon runners: there's no bakery anymore in our village, so you can run a few extra miles.

85 degrees at 9 am: crazy!

I was dizzy several times at work because of the heat, so I ran extremly relaxed. Maybe I should do more often! 😉

Very even splits, I'm still able to run like a swiss clock (we say here in Germany), even if it isn't as fast as a few years ago. But there is hope! 😉

Remember my boss who wanted me to run in this triathlon relay a few weeks ago (He's a sub3-marathoner btw)? He called me at 7.30 pm after 10 hours of work already to give a presentation about elections for his party. After I did I started my run at 9.15 pm. No chance I would miss a run! 😂
