2-hr Language Course

I ended the week with an easy 2 hour run with my German friends. Actually, I prefer to say it was a 2 hour English/German language lesson. On a scale of 1 to 4, Jurgen speaks english at a 3 and Marcus at a 2. On the other hand, I speak German at a 0 (zero). Poor Jurgen ended up being the translator for me and Marcel. He also became the baby-jogger pusher for most of the run. Marcel took his 7-month twin boys out on the baby-jogger to join us. Amazingly they slept during the entire 2hr run. I actually experienced for a few miles what it's like to push a baby jogger. I hope it wasn't a sign of what's to come. We avg'd a nice and easy 7:21 pace for the run.

That is a good race time considering the high mileage week. Well done.

the short easy run a day prior to the race definitely wasn't enough to freshen up the legs but i was fine with it. decided to train through the it since the more serious races will come in the next month.
