This is a log of my extremely unambitious running career. It’s mostly an aide memoire to myself. If I wanted to brag, I’d need to find another subject.

Past runs (latest on top)

  • 2024-03-06 (endurance) distance 18km, duration 2:30, avg speed 8:20. I wasn’t fully in shape, but it was a warm Saturday morning, and it was good to be out in the forest near the lake!
  • 2024-02-04 (intervals) 8.04km, duration 58:39, avg speed 7:17. An after-work run, where I felt like giving intervals another try.
  • 2024-03-29 (fun run) distance 11.35km, duration 1:35, avg speed 8'38/km. We’re visiting relatives, so I got to experience a new route. Off of some light online research, this was a delightful run through the spring forest and hilly fields.
  • 2024-03-25: (recovery?) distance 9.72km, duration 1:28'35. This was meant to be a simple after-work run, perhaps a little longer than my usual 6-7km. My heart rate was over the top most of the time, so I went really slow. With hindsight, I’m guessing that I went through a light respiratory infection last weekend, leading to a dip in fitness.
  • 2024-03-19: (speed) distance 6.55km, duration 00:45'48, speed 7'00/km. I wanted to go out for a recovery run after a good week’s break, but felt like going fast. So I did a few intervals. No fixed distances, more like “I’m going to run fast until the next corner”.
  • 2024-03-17: (endurance) distance 21.52km!!!, duration 3:08'41, speed 8'46. Personal record! My goal was to do a half marathon by summer, and I made it by mid-March. Rather proud of myself!
  • 2024-03-10: (endurance) distance 18.47km, duration 2:39'53, speed 8'39/km
  • 2024-03-08: (recovery) distance 6.83km, duration 55:30, speed 08'07min/km
  • 2024-02-24: (endurance) distance 16.49km, duration 2:22'40, speed 8'39/km
