off season 2016

A long and good season is on it´s final meters. Today we have 2nd of October, the day before Germany´s famous holiday, a typically day, the time indian summer ends. There is a little rainfall and temperatures move slightly below 20° Celsius. Excellent conditions for running-competitions!

The week before there had been a rather famous race among locals along the 10.000k distance. In a field of 105 participants, with a time of 39:44 min, I was ranked 27th overall. Tactics went all right, and with k-splits of 3:47, 3:53, 3:50, 3:59, 4:00, 4:01. 4:05, 4:04, 4:03 and 3:57, well, the first half of the race I could save some seconds for to be sub fourty minutes finally. However, this cannot be the how-to at 30th of October in Frankfurt along the 42,195k. "Fleeing" will not work the marathon distance, hunting is said to be better. Anyway, the most important is to be among mates and to have a beer or two, also in Frankfurt, which will be a big race with 15-20000 starters. In Frankfurt, also known as Bankfurt or Mainhatten, some will be dressed like business-men in order to make a fun race out of it and to tease the banksters. 

update two weeks later: Not me! 

Today it is the 16th of October, and having had an accident for the third time in my life two days ago - such a kind of an accident which has to be... - well, when laying on the main-street I just wondered... ...of the why, why again! Secondly I percepted that all the important of the body is not damaged. I was lucky, really, thus the left side, knee, hip, ellow and shoulder had been knocked badly, only, face got also impact my sunglases is in three parts now, only. Not so the left little finger, that is broken. Having "kissed" the asphalt intensively, I managed to cycle home, 15 miles by me I myself, and went to the hospital. 

So that week-end it is decided to quit season and to quit Frankfurt Marathon. And it is okay. A really good season with a lot of peeks is finished and now it is time to regenerate. Sure, if a must, I could do go run marathon. But for what? 

It says: to be satisfied with what you have is true fortune.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!  CU in 2017!
