After a nice week in the Alps without running the CCC (have a look at Silke's account of the event if you want more details) I now find myself with reasonably fresh legs. In much better shape than only a few weeks ago. And I am now really looking forward to the Berlin Marathon.
I have managed to produce PB's in all my races this year: Glasgow - Edinburgh (56 miles, PB by 30 minutes), Highland Fling (53 miles, PB by 11 minutes), West Highland Way race (95 miles, first finish) and Devil (42 miles, PB by 14 minutes).
And I am now hopeful to produce a PB in Berlin in less than two weeks. That is I want to break my PB from last year (2:46:06). Not an easy task but I feel in much better shape now than I was last year before the Berlin Marathon. I even managed to produce some reasonable speedwork.
So I am getting older but can still go faster? Do you want to guess my time? :-)
