My First 21K Marathon!!!! (Read 194 times)

Enric Hilversum


    And in 1:38:35!!!


    LOL. Well, it was a cross-country marathon and due to heavy rain and extremely bad condition in the woods (falling branches and acorns, ankle deep mud, etc.)  the organization decided to cancel it for safeties sake.

     

    But funnily enough the organization hasn't put any notes on the results site: http://www.bosmarathon.eu/uitslagen.htm

     

    so that more an eventual visitor will be amazed by the times a bunch of Dutchies can do in a Marathon.. .and surely wondering why none of us ever won anything in the Olimpic games XD

     

    Well, amazing run, anyway (or should I say swim?).

     

    I am now totally gung-ho with switching to trail and cross-country and almost totally ditch big massive and overpriced road events.

     

    the only issue is that I have still 2 races left (10K road and 9K cross) and my training plan was counting with a couple of weeks of lower mileage and intensity leaving me in the need to adapt it...

     

    Awesome Wink

      Very nice half marathon time. Congrats! Smile

        Your Garmin is wrong, the course was correct.

        I've done my best to live the right way; I get up every morning and go to work each day...

          I thought the wooden shoes slowed you down.  Congratulations on your run!

              It was a Timex this time. And the GPS wasn't working :P
              Seems that the satellite signals got blocked by our famous mountains XD
