Berlin Marathon Training in Stadtwald Giessen: 14 Weeks Out

A pretty good week, mostly because of the great long run, which I haven’t had in a while. We ran in Berlin on Sunday because we were up for a birthday party (which was really fun!). It was… an interesting run.

run type: training run
route: began on Seltersweg, ran to the 1/2 mile marker in the Stadtwald and back
feeling: :)
time: 40’24”
distance: 4 miles
pace per mile: 10’06”
additional notes: Both Rob and I were surprised at how fast we were going. Even though I’m getting faster, it never really feels like it.

run type: long run
route: Up Main to 2-mile marker, down to blue arrow (BA), 2.1-mile loop, back up Main to BA, out to Other Forest and back, 2.1-mile loop, up to 1/2-mile, back to beginning, finish at the bridge.
feeling: :)
time: 2’13″18
distance: 11 miles
pace per mile: 12’06”
additional notes: Not super fast, but man! did it feel good to finally have a long run that wasn’t awful. When I was done, I felt like we had only fun 3 miles, not 11. I barely noticed the distance. I hope it’s 60 and cloudy on race day…

run type: training run
route: wander around the forest between Schönow and Waldfrieden for about an hour…
feeling: :(
time: 56’00”
distance: 5ish miles
pace per mile: 11’12”
additional notes: I was dehydrated and something else happened on this run that I’m just going to keep between me and Rob and Sarah. Sounds like a little club? Well, then here’s our motto: “We’ve got the runs.” Believe me, you don’t want to know.
