So when we went for a family walk, I ran there and back. Some of the course with my 6-year-old son Paul on his bike, some meters running with my 4-year-old son Henri. In between my wife with our Labrador Paula. Fun in the sun!</p> <p>+ 10&acute; stretching</p> Sun, 18 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Feb 16, 2018 http://mariachi.fastrunningblog.com/blog-02-16-2018.html <p>95&acute; easy/moderate</p> <p>ran from 270m altitude to 505m and back (happens when you want to run in the forests rather than on the streets...). Could welcome the first cranes again, spring is coming!! Had to do my long run today instead of sunday. Will have to help evacuate parts of our city on sunday because an american aircraft bomb was found while construction works. But I would never ever blame you for that.

First km 6:23, last 4:41.</p> <p>Was harder to get into running then the weeks before. Yesterday&acute;s rest including a very good night of sleep (8 hours) maybe was too much recovery.

Could really be an option! Also the run was too short to have respect for that pace. Did that pace (4:50/km) easily for 25 km while I trained (and injured) for my fall marathon last year. The big issue will be how I feel at that pace when I run more miles in general and longer marathonpace-runs (up to 60 min, but not more).</p> Fri, 02 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Feb 01, 2018 http://mariachi.fastrunningblog.com/blog-02-01-2018.html <p>31&acute;easy, 3 strides</p> <p>+ 10&acute; stretching</p> Thu, 01 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Jan 30, 2018 http://mariachi.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-30-2018.html <p>34&acute; easy, 3 strides</p> <p>Using a 4-day recovery block to test what works for my immediate marathon taper (last week).
