Looks like a fun race, will have to think about it. Thanks.

Today I did 12 km. First half felt really heavy but second half was great.

Back again! Have had the joy of getting every cold I could lay my hands on since christmas so training has been a but sporadic. This week has been good to me and I finally feel like I am totally recovered. In fact I felt good enough to sign up for the trail marathon Hakko recommended! 44 km, about 900 m ascent and, according to the people behind it, some pretty rough terrain. It's three month away so plenty of time to get freaked out about my non-existing form. But now is a good time to start logging again.

Yesterday was 14 km in fresh snow, it looks nice but is really quite taxing on muscles you rarely use. Tomorrow will hopefully be long distance.

Hey ho!

Welcome back! And good luck with the trail ultra marathon! I watched the movie they've put up and it looks like very enjoyable terrain for running. Looking forward to the race report.

Yes it seems like a nice race.

Did 20 km in the snow today, really slow but still enjoyable. Best to enjoy it while it last.

Today was 17 km of running errands so a few stops here and there. Had trouble finding a good rhytm and my technique felt all wrong. Apart from that I enjoy getting miles in while doing stuff that needs to be done. Maybe not quality training but fun to do.

Yesterday was trailrunning! Way to long ago, almost all snow are gone now so a bit mushy but 13 km in the sun was great.
