35K Run from Ahrensfelde to Steglitz
This was my third mega training run in a series of six, adding 2 kilometers to each run: 31K, 33K and now 35K. The distance was no problem but the 36°C direct sun from overhead for the last two hours of the run was quite hammering and reduced me to a walk during the last kilometer through the Stadtpark. I felt a bit weak and overheated, so walking and keeping my head rag sopped in water was a way to remain cool. My ultra marathon is going to start at 18:00 and so sun will be the last thing I need to worry about or train for. Looking forward to the next three mega training runs: 37K, 39K and 41K!
