Lucia Marathon in Bovallsstrand

Av Pelle - 13 december 2008 22:49

Despite having a flu coming in my system, I decided to go to Bovallsstrand this morning for another marathon race. Yes, it might sound stupid, but I also know how bad I would feel by canceling it and staying home feeling sorry for myself. I decided to go easy, well that's the only pace I know nowadays so that was no change. Target time was 4 hours 30 minutes. It was around Zero degrees, so the full outfit was on, incl windproof jacket, wollen hat and gloves. The course over 7 km's is rather tough with lots of hills and twists & turns, through the streets of the fishing village, along the rocky coast line and through some forest. Nice mix and beautiful scenary. 6 laps. The first 3 were OK, passed half marathon on just over 2 hours. Then I started to struggle half ways through the 4th lap. My good friend Petri passed me on his 5th lap (new PB on 3.10) and I had to walk up some hills. The 5th lap was the toughest and I lost ground to some other runners around me, but somehow I came back miraculosly on the last lap and overtook some of the ones that had passed me earlier on. I felt great and realized that I could reach my target and so I did. 4.24,07

Petri & Malin joined me home for dinner and some drinks. Good to catch up with Petri again. He's a triathlon fanatic and is getting better and better, even at the age of 43. Interesting. I hope to do an Ironman again next summer (Kalmar maybe) and my target is a new PB at the age of 51.

Yes, the flu has left my system. It has really helped to empty my body from all kind of energy reserves the last 4-5 days. If I remember correct according to some old body charging theories, it's good to clean out and empty your body, before star...

Time is flying in supersonic speed, so it's good to reflect back now and then, to get a picture of what's happening in life. That's why I now and then take a glimse back in some files to check what was going on the year or years before at...
