Next week will be the key one in my training. Planned is a 35 Km long runs in preparation for the Jungfrau marathon…
This week has been a very good one (mainly because I had to shift one of my long runs, so I ended up doing two in one week). The amating thing is that I am feeling really well today after a 28km long run yesterday. Actually I felt so good after 22 Km that I ran a few 5:20 min/km kilometers…

A good week this one…
I am back from a kind of longish holiday… Actually it was only 3 weeks but it was a crazy period at work and home so could not write much… I was in Canada (national Parks) and I had a few GREAT running experiences. Running in the National Parks around Banff, Jasper and in the Grey Wells Park was…. Well… Phenomenal. One of the greatest experience I had in the last months. I am running a bit more lately, especially in preparation for the Jungfrau Marathon (Web Site).
I ran the Swiss Alpine Half Marathon last Sunday (21.1 Km and ca. 700 m heigh gain) for training. The race has also a 11 Km, 30 Km, two marathons (one with 1800 m heigh gain called K42, and one with “only” 400 m height gain called C42) and an ultra of 78 Km and 2000m height gain called K78. A wonderful event (I will report on it in a separate post). Weather was PERFECT!
Here I am running in the sun… Nice picture by the way
So now on longer runs… in a few days 25km and then 30 and one 35 at least…
August will be packed!
Had a relatively nice week of training. Did 40 Km in 5 sessions, with some hills. Had fun and are feeling rather well, something that was not happening since a while. What has changed? I am now running again in Asics Kayano instead of old and used Adidas trial running shoes. Possibly trail shoes are too rigid for my legs and asphalt/hard roads? Well I will have to see how it goes with the shoes in the next 2-3 weeks… For now I am happy, not as I could be but I cannot complain really…
I am using for testing movescount from Suunto. Nice web place to save trainings and analyse them, especially since it works with Mac and I am on Mac

Suunto has released in March new colors for the loved t6 series. Now it is called t6d and offers a hr belt that works with gym equipment. Other than that there is no (apparent) difference between the t6d and the older t6c apart from the look. A very nice one is the black flame model!
