I have a blog. So I should blog something. Once in a while.
The problem in the past weeks and even months was that there was not much running happening in the Crazy German's running department. I am still struggling with injury. Had some painful attempts to maintain some sort of fitness. To avoid excessive weight gain. To have some fun.
I watched some big racing going on from a distance. The UTMB with a lot of great performances. A race out of my reach. Of course I watched Silke's superb ultra debut in the 42mile Devil. That kept my spirit going for a while. Yesterday we watched (some of) the Ben Nevis Race. Silke wrote a nice report about this. Have a look.
But running is not really a spectator sport. And there is some good news to report. I have manged a few longer runs in the last 10 days. Nothing spectacular. Last weekend a 12 miler followed by another 12 miler the following day. This Sunday I run the Lairig More and today I managed 19 miles. I consider this a green light for the Berlin Marathon in two weeks. So that's hopefully an event where I am actually running again and hopefully finishing. So that's something to look forward to.
