After several weeks it´s time to show in that blog… that I´m still running and following my target to be an Ultra runner .Today I want to see whats beyond the 42,195 km and I will start at the Rodgau Ultramarathon Race over 50km , this is the kickoff race for Ultra Runners in Germany. As far as I know they are expecting about 1000 Runners from Germany 1runner from Italy and 1 crazy runner from Finland.(me yeeessss hyvää suomi watch race number 105) The weather forecast for today is o.k …we are expecting -4°° with some sunny moments at noon.
Training for that race is done with some normal ups and downs as you can see. Didn´t ran so much this week to safe some fuel for today so I made my carbo loading over the last two days (puuro twice a day) so I´m full of energy and it´s time to start. So everything feels normal and ok at this stage…lets rock
