It’s stupid, let’s do it! – F. Junk – In less than 144 days the Zugspitz Ultratrail will take place near Garmisch and I’m going to enroll. But what distance should I run?
What would you do if a doctor tells you, you should stop running? Would you accept it because you’re a lazy dude who doesn’t need sports, would you accept it or maybe start to do something about it? Approximately every runner nevertheless if pro or enthusiast suffers from a running injury once per year.
Recently I had to describe what type of runner I am. Well I don’t like if I have to run, due to Nike I ran 69 times in 2015 and I already finished my #80ktillxmas so I’d describe myself as a Sunday one. I enrolled into a trail half marathon, a half marathon and finally a real marathon and I also had some lazy days.
A few weeks ago some friends and I have been on vacation near Lisbon. Southwards of the beautiful city is a region called Cascais where we’d rented an apartment for our group. While some of us had been surfing, watching others surf or just doing other sports the rest had been climbing at spots near the Portuguese coast.
About three months ago I enrolled in my first marathon. It’s been a stupid and somehow spontaneous move but there’s a serious history behind it.
Within the last month I attended a half marathon, the Sixtus-Lauf, a trail running half marathon, and enrolled my first marathon. Although I hadn’t been able to attend more events I tried to put more focus on my running itself. I’m used to track myself and to improve my personal workflow.
