M̦rfelden Half Marathon 2017 Р7th Place

M̦rfelden Рagain!

I didn’t race Rodgau, it was too much of a pain to get to, so I have just been training. Oh and being sick! Last week after getting home from swimming I started feeling ill, then vommed my guts out and basically felt like crap until Wednesday.  Mörfelden Half Marathon was in my plan though, I somehow thought it was on Saturday, which was a bit early, but the actual day, of Sunday, was much better.

So I was up at silly o’clock (5:50am) to eat before Jochen picked me up at 8am.  It didn’t take to long to get there, so we were pretty early.  It was -3 degrees when I left the house, it would be another chilly race!

I couldn’t find my heart rate monitor, and I amazingly haven’t run a half marathon since Mainz last May, so I was in a bit of unknown territory with regards to pacing. I wore my Zantes and felt like 1:21:xx would be doable, so about 3:50/km.  Jochen was aiming for a PB, which would be sub 4:00/km and Stephan who was also running, was aiming for a sub 1:30 time.
