Berlin Halbmarathon Training 2019

Next year's Spring goal is again a half marathon. I think these are more suited to my particular abilities and the time I have available for training.

7 April 2019 21.1 km

I came. I ran. I PRed. Spring in Berlin is beautiful. I feel like I could have done better if there hadn't been so many people, but I'm still glad I came.


30 March 2019

I did a lot of biking (100s of km) in Mallorca this past week, but only a little bit of running. Probably not as little as I should have done on the taper, but the Mediterrenean was too beautiful to pass up. Last night there I got robbed of my phone and wallet, so getting back home with an overnight in Vienna was tough and I have no idea about getting to Berlin and back. Challenge accepted!

2 March 2019 - 11 km

Today was a great run in the Bergen rain.

21 February 2019 - 6 km

Today was the second run with my new running buddy Vibeke. I am super excited to find someone to run with regularly, and she is coming off of a motorcycle accident and motivated to get back out there. Ironically it was Julia that introduced us.

15 February 2019 - 9 km

Today I combined my 7 and 5 km routes to pick up 9 km, including sprints along the flat path along the road. While sprinting I fantasized about winning a 10K and BQing. I don't think they are delusionally unrealistic goals like I used to. Also today I started the 100 Day No Alcohol Challenge which should be a challenge.

9 February 2019 - 10 km

So I finally managed to cross the 50 minute mark in a 10K race, although I wasn't as fast today as I was in Lisboa last year on the 10K split there. But my 5K slpit tonight beat my best 5K time, so go figure. Perfect weather this evening helped, and the warm up of Fortnite dance moves was hilarious.

4 February 2019 - 3 km

Ran up to the Extra today to pickup a package from grandma that turned out to be huge, so running back home was interesting. Definitely a different aesthetic from last week's runs in California!

1 February 2019 - 16 km

29 January 2019 - 5 mi

Today after landing in Los Angeles and getting to my hotel I ran down Venice Beach to Marina Del Rey along the water under the setting sun. I love California. I took off my shoes and stood with my feet in the water as the sun fell behind the ocean. Above the pier and the fog behind I realized were mountains then, not the darker clouds I had at first assumed.

21 January 2019 - 5 km

9 January 2019 - 3.5 km

Ran up to the Extra to pickup a package from Dell and back. It was a good little run. Got me out of the house at least.

5 January 2019 - 21 km

Jeg er en fjellgeit. I dag løpte jeg med hundrene av løper de 1. fellestrening for Bergen City Maratonen. Det var bra.

1 January 2019 - 5 km

I'd wanted to run a race in Atlanta with family today but that didn't happen since Cara got a travel ban for Maxwell and Zara. So I'm here in Norway with them and suffering Alora and Brittan's unwillingness to visit. Cara's anger is continuing to poison so much of my world even now that we are separated. Still, I keep running...

27 December 2018 - 5 km

I've kept up pretty well with my running this month. I even found a running buddy in Julia in Tallinn. She used to run the 6 km to the hospital she worked at and back. We ran most of that but detoured so we could run through the park. This was at the beginning of the week. Today I just did a solitary run through my Langeskogen, the usual 5K route. Not as exciting as running in Helsinki or Tallinn. Still steps on the path toward my half in Berlin with Axel. Sometimes in the woods I feel like I'm flying and it's magical. When Julia gets back and I get back (assuming I get to go to Atlanta) we're going to go running together.

2 December 2018 - 21.1 km

Perfect running weather on a nice flat course means I PR'd my half marathon (1:47:03) and all the splits on the way. I'm not sure if this means getting a PR in Berlin next year will be easier or harder. I think easier because I feel like I am really starting to understand myself enough to improve my times.

23 November 2018 - 7 km

I signed up for the Berlin Half Marathon so I could run a race with Axel and because I've yet to run a race in Deutschland yet. Now I have a goal to train for. Part of me wants to make the time goal an hour and a half, but I know that's insane so I'm really just aiming for a PR. Today on the Løvstien I felt like I was flying though. But my phone decided to turn off in the cold, so I wasn't able to Strava it. Since I like Strava so much I should probably get a gizmo to run with instead of my phone.
