60 minutes... That's my threshold to consider myself "able to train." When I can run 60 minutes, I feel like I'm finally making progress.
After nearly 6 weeks of illness and travel, I finally completed a 60 minute run today. The weather was cool and clear. Although my legs were still a bit heavy, my head was light.
I managed to find the German trail network... WOW!!! What a great system. There are MILES of paved/cobbled trails. I can't wait to explore it with my MTB when it arrives.
Finally, Sunday in Germany is a day of rest. The stores are all closed. There are serious ordinances/restrictions to prevent noise (no lawn mowing or loud music for example). It's really peaceful seeing so many people outside walking, running, cycling and re-charging themselves (quietly) for the week ahead. I think the U.S. could learn something...
