11K After-Work Run with Timed Tiergarten 5K (23:59)
Got out the door at work at 18:20 into a cold and dark night, lightly sprinkling, didn't have lots of energy but had a good podcast conversation, Sam Harris, Eric Weinstein, and Ben Shapiro which got me to the starting line. My energy level was quite low at the beginning but I hit my 24:00-pace points at the first two corners and kept it up for a consistent 23:59. I can imagine my spring-time, non-night runs will be faster simply because I won't have to be careful running through the dark of trees avoiding puddles along the south-side Tiergartenstraße. There are 106 more days till the Nantes Marathon, I mapped out the route this week which is a complete urban marathon: three times around the inner city, I've never done a marathon like that before.
