    Yeah. My colleague runs like 24h races and "last man still running" type of runs.

    It's marathon time this Sunday... Nearing the end of the taper and I always fucking hate tapering, I always feel rotten and unfit and really lethargic. I know training went well but I can never seem to draw on the enthusiasm. But as always it will feel right on the day.

    Then it's time to get the salomon 12 litre pack on and get into ultra mode 😁

    46 mile race in June
    100 miler in sept 

    And something new to me, 12 hours running on a track in November... Eek
    Wow. I am tired just thinking about all this. Your heart rate must be insanely low. I wonder how many sets of headphones you will need for that 12 hour run. You are amazing.

    In California over weekend, 10 miles on beach, and in Idaho now...ran 5 along the river on a cool trail this morning.
    Tomorrow going to run the streets of Boise.
    Love seeing different cities on foot, this way.
    Thursday AM ill be in a different part of CA, running on another beach

    That all sounds really nice. Do you run barefoot on the beach?

    Yeah. Running in sand is hard I would think.

    Yes, I have a great coach who set me up with a training schedule that i'll stick to. I initially didn't think 6 months was enough time to prepare but it looks like that is somewhat standard.

    No time goal yet, just getting started. Ran a 5k in March in 28mins to give you a gauge of where I'm at now. I really enjoyed that so I spoke with a family member who runs several marathons a year and they offered to help me with my first. I'll probably come up with a goal once I start to get a feel for the longer runs.

    Sounds like you're in good hands! I hope you enjoy the training, it's quite exciting when you get to the point that every long run is the furthest you've run. Look forward to hearing about it all

    Went on my first run since a December trip yesterday.  Just an easy 3 miles.  Going to try to run 3-4 times a week for now and get back into trail running for the year once the trails are dry.  I usually keep my runs under 8 miles once I'm in the swing of it and try to get in a decent amount of hill work. Mix in weights 1-2 times per week for general strength.

    Well it didn't go exactly to plan! It's was cold (5c) with heavy rain and strong winds, parts of the course were flooded ankle deep with no way around. So missed out on my big goal but did squeeze out 3:27 which is a best by 1 minute 😅

    That is amazing - a PR in shit conditions, well done!

    327 is a seriously good time.  I know you wanted more but that is incredible

    Aiming at 120 for my 10 mile race next Sunday.  Last year I was 130 in the pouring rain.  Year before I was 1:26.  Would be happy to PR, but I kind of expect to.  Would really like to be sub 1:20.
    35,000 people so half the battle is staying clear of aholes.  :lol:

    This sucked. Haha. Ran 0,0000005 second slower than my record :(

    IF I HAD ONLY HAD A GARMIN I WOULD HAVE KNOWN AND COULD HAVE PUSHED A LITTLE BIT HARDER.

    I ran my fastest 10k when my garmin wasn't reading right and I had no idea how I was running for about half of it.
    Sometimes knowing is better, sometimes not

    Getting a lot faster, dude, great work!

    "Digital seeding lap" for Göteborgsvarvet (21K, May 18) on the lunchbreak on Thursday. My one colleague is going to act as pacer for my other colleague. But I think they will keep a 5:20 tempo.... too fast for me

    Does your office have showers?
    I know many run at lunch but I wouldn't think I'd have time to gear up....stretch....run....cool down....shower, change.  This all takes time.  My damn gearing up and stretching can take 15 minutes.  (Or, 30 if at 4AM and I'm still trying to wake up)

    Shower. A small gym. Sauna. yeah.

    We stretch out the lunchbreak the days we run. I would say with changing etc we are away maybe an hour, so with eating afterwards~90 minutes maybe. Sometimes longer if people run like a 7-8K.

    .makes sense.  I don't have 10 minutes free between 700 and 600 most days.  Some slots are double and triple booked, lol.  I think is good that people can work running in however they do....and they also probably feel great.

    I believe from what I've heard/read here in England, Scandinavian countries are streets ahead of the rest of us regarding wellness, work/life balance.

    I'd like to hear more about a wellness grant so I can put it forward to my bosses!

    In Sweden is it in someway tax subsidized for companies. And "most" companies have some form of Wellness grant, because obviously it's a factor for people when choosing employer.

    At my job, we used to have 200 dollars a year. That could be spent on Massage, Gym card, Application fee for a marathon etc. It can not be used on things, like running shoes, golf clubs or a Garmin watch etc. The government are the ones deciding what is allowed.

    Now we have 600 dollars a year. But the company only pays 80% of it, and the employee has to pay 20%. So when I applied for the Gothenburg halfmarathon, which was 100 dollars application fee, they pay 80 dollars and I have to pay 20 dollars.
