Espoo during the day

Today I took some hours off work and tried the Espoo central park for the first time in my life! The 4.3K route was a positive surprise: it’s really in the forest with only some distant car noise coming off from Länsiväylä and Turuntie. Total of around 10K, not that hard running.

Next step: Marathon

Ok, to get some more life into this blog I thought I’ll start posting my training notes here. A week ago I ran a 1/2 marathon just under 1.20 and some three weeks ago a 10K (possibly not exact) under 34 minutes. Both with minimal preparation and training: these were in fact the first running competitions in five years I participated into! Also, I haven’t kept any notes of my runs since 1999. My grand aim is now to do a marathon within a year. I believe something between 2.40 and 2.45 should be possible. Location? I’ve been fancying about New York but Berlin could be a lot faster.
