Woohoo! I’ve now been doing four 21 kilometer runs in two weeks. Have I learn anything? Sure I have.

Disclaimer: Following patterns occur to me, but reactions may vary.

For 21 kilometers there are two outcomes, well, either a great run or indifferent run, and after the first five kilometers I now which one it’s going to be. If I feel like running “above” my fitness condition, then I know I got it.

For me it’s important to start with easy pace and really not to try too hard. If I’ll start with too fast pace, I eventually run only slightly faster, but I will miss the fun of running.

Anyway, if after five kilometers I know I’m going to hit the great run, next level is after ten to twelve kilometers. Running starts to feel lighter and the same time speed will start to increase a bit.

Fifteen kilometers and beyond is ecstasy! Really.

After indifferent run feeling is tired, but after a great run feeling is great and refreshed. That’s the fun of running.
