Marathontraining Week 12, exercise 2: 7.5km jogging with 15 minutes Marathon pace. Wearing the shirt from the 20KM of Paris of October 8. Last training done before the Marathon of Rennes in Brittany France this Sunday. My bib will be 906. While coughing it will almost sounds like a fast Porsche 906 ! πŸ˜‰ A nice number. Let's see what the damage will be for skipping week 11 in the training due to being ill. It will be my first time in Rennes and at same time in genealogical aspect it will be a visit to soil where my family once came from. I'm a descendant from the French Huguenots. In those days in the past became the enemies of the French King due to religion. "Un roi, une loi, une foi". . . After the Edict of Nantes (1685) they had the choice to or: become Catholic or to leave France before being slaughtered. My ancestors chose for the last one and went up North to the Netherlands. They even changed their name. The only thing known is that we came from Rennes. The rest apparently has been preferred to keep silent. . 22/10: Marathon Vert Rennes @marathon_vert_rennes_km Brittany (Bretagne), France (42.195km πŸƒ) . . . #course #instarunfrance #runaddict #hardlopen #ikloophard #hardlopenisleuk #hardloopnetwerk #relive #ilh #laufen #fitdutchie #running_feature #runnerswanderlust #run2day #igrunnerz #igersfrance #igersbelgium #igersbelgique #igersholland #runnersworldnl #seenonmyrun #runyourworld #strava #runtoexplore #kalenjirunning #decathlon #asics #imoveme #tomtom #igersnpdc
Last Marathontraining done before Marathon in Rennes, Brittany France this Sunday. My fourth full marathon (42.195km / 26.2 miles) in a year. The last training before the event is always a special moment after three months dedicated training. Everything is done as prep. Now it comes to the fitness of the day in combination with the weather conditions (temperature, wind πŸ’¨ etc) to set a time or not. I'm not fully recovered yet, so I already adjusted my objective for Sunday. Fit enough to finish it, yes. For the rest we will see. To stay safe, I'll start at the pace chart I used 6 months ago in the Marathon of Paris and then along the road we will see what the body tells me. Stick to it, or shift up in last part. . . It has become tradition to select the shoe for raceday after the final training runs. Out of three, I have selected the Asics Gel Pulse 8 (Black). . . 22/10: Marathon Vert Rennes, Brittany (Bretagne), France (42.195km πŸƒ) . . . #course #instarunfrance #runaddict #hardlopen #ikloophard #hardlopenisleuk #hardloopnetwerk #relive #ilh #laufen #fitdutchie #running_feature #runnerswanderlust #run2day #igrunnerz #igersfrance #igersbelgium #igersbelgique #igersholland #runnersworldnl #seenonmyrun #runyourworld #strava #runtoexplore #kalenjirunning #decathlon #asics #imoveme #tomtom #igersnpdc

Fifty minutes easy jogging with 15 minutes at Marathon pace, 72m D+. But these days will be remembered by the exceptional skies brought by hurricane Ophelia. As effect the most colorful skies and high temperatures due to air coming from the South with Sahara sand and smoke from the forrest fires in Portugal πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Ή. . . Yes, you could tell my very first profession has been geographer in fact. So, phenomena such as seen as today, intrigue me much. About the run. Still coughing, a lack of air and feeling fatigue, but the overall physical condition slightly better each day. Running and finishing the Marathon of Rennes will be no problem. Estimated time I have to calculate, based how I feel Sunday. Just a few days left. .

On medal monday writing a blog "We'll always have Paris, well.. at least three times!". A blog about the hattrick I made this year in Paris by running the three most beautiful events to run downtown the city of Light. 1) Fitbit Semi de Paris with Adidas, Paris East: halfmarathon, March 5, 2017. Start and finish near ChΓ’teau Vincennes 2) Schneider Electric Paris Marathon with Asics, April 9, 2017. Start at Champs-Γ‰lysΓ©es and finish near Arc de Triomphe. 3) Les 20KM de Paris with Diadora, Paris West, October 8, 2017. Start and finish at Eiffel Tower πŸ—Ό As Marathoner I'm talking about the bit longer road races held in Paris this year, starting from 20K. So come back very soon on my blog or read previous posts meanwhile at: www.aDutchRunnerinFrance.blogspot.fr or follow link in my Bio. Few days to go Marathon number 4 this year : Rennes.

Just finished one of the toughest 10K runs I remember, but it's in the pocket. Not as shown on this photo before the start of the 20KM de Paris last week, but the first Marathon training I just ran since a week after the 20KM race in Paris, while still struggling. It's a gamble, but maybe also the last chance to arrive at the start of the Marathon in 6 days from now in reasonable fitness shape. Despite being ill for over a week now. The air to breath was extraordinary warm today for the time of year, so that's why I gave it a go. First 5KM I stopped four times to get some extra air and to drink due to the sore throat, but the second 5K went remarkable well. Hopefully the coming days will be the way up. Two more runs of 50 and 40 minutes to complete and then it's up to Rennes for the Bib and 42.195km run through Brittany πŸƒ . . #course #instarunfrance #runaddict #hardlopen #ikloophard #hardlopenisleuk #hardloopnetwerk #relive #ilh #laufen #fitdutchie #running_feature #runnerswanderlust #run2day #igrunnerz #igersfrance #igersbelgium #igersbelgique #igersholland #runnersworldnl #seenonmyrun #runyourworld #strava #relive #runtoexplore #kalenjirunning #decathlon #asics #imoveme #tomtom #igersnpdc
Swipe: Zigzagging toward the finish 🏁. As usual I sprint the last stage of an endurance run as it is just a 800m sprint without 9, 20 or 41Km to run before.

This weekend a year ago, I ran my first Marathon, the Marathon of Amsterdam ( @tcsamsterdammarathon) . As a novice runner, I just started some months before with running, I had to learn a lot. Such as running the marathonwall in KM 37 as shown on this photo. Nevertheless I managed to complete in negative split in 4:00:31. Six months later, april 2017 I was about to attack towards the 3h30. Unfortunately I became ill in the taper week before start and on raceday the heat didn't help either. It became a 3:46:29 in the Marathon of Paris. In May I gave it all in Edinburgh Marathon to a 3:53:12. The maximum possible on that track in Scotland on also a warm day, seven weeks after Paris. The idea was to finally attack the 3h30 barrier October 22 now in Rennes Marathon in Brittany France. Again bad luck as during last weekend of the 20KM race in Paris (Oct 8) I got a bad cold which didn't allow me to complete the Marathontraining in the final important week before taper time. The last run I did was last Sunday in Paris, and looking at current physical condition (faryngitis and a bad cough), I don't see me running this week. So, it's taper time already since crossing the line of the @20KMdeParis last Sunday and let's see October 22, what's left in the body for the 42.195km Marathon in Rennes. Objective will be faster than the Marathon time of 3h46 last April in Paris of course. No excuses for that, but running to the 3h30 barrier, again that have to wait unfortunately. Up to my 19th month as runner (since March 2016) up to my fourth full marathon in exactly 12 months time. Everybody who will be running the TCS Amsterdam Marathon this weekend, good luck and enjoy the great ambiance in the Olympic StadiumπŸ’ͺ .

Just an hour before start of the 20km of Paris @20kmparis . There was a nice vibe over there with Sexual Healing from Marvin Gaye coming from the speakers. But in fact I was feeling awful that morning due to a bad cold. Saturday night in Paris went to pharmacist for homeopatic stuff to ease the symptoms a bit. For that same reason I had the mind set to just enjoy the ambiance without any expectations. I started the race easy, also I was not that sure about the tendon Achilles at the left. After 4km when the machine was warmed up, accelerated a bit and happy to maintain that pace and overtook over 2.200 runners in the following 15KM. Now to the Doctors' for a prescription to get better asap I hope. Should have run these days final training runs before taper to Marathon Rennes next week the 22nd. Just like last Sunday no excuse of course, as there is still a week to recover.

It has been a while since last diploma. Since the halfmarathon and marathon of Paris in march and april earlier this year to be exact. At the bottom left wearing the medal of the 20km Paris after the run. I ran the @20kmparis with negative split of exact 12 seconds: 00:47:57 for the first 10km and 00:47:45 for the second 10KM (5K's: 24:41, 23:16, 23:35 and 24:10). So, we can confirm it was a nice and steady run on track with +278m D. With 01:35:42 after 20km I just missed the barrier to a time to 1h34 or below, which would have given a seat in starting wave for prefered runners at the front of the pack for next year. I started at a 1h38 time plan though as training run for the Marathon in Rennes next week, so I wasn't focussed on a time below 1h35. In fact I was already happy I could maintain the pace last Sunday despite heavy legs and a bad cold. I got a cold last saturday, so less than a day before the race went to the pharmacists, ran the race Sunday and now for second day in a row with some temperature 🌑 πŸ€’. As effect so far, no marathontraining in final week before taper time. Let's hope temperature will drop tomorrow to restart training asap.

Medal monday of course with the fun and cool medal and shirt of yesterday. The 20km of Paris. What a nice event with start and finish at the Eiffel Tower! πŸ—Ό I started at the 1h35 wave and that is exactly what I did with 1:35:42 😁 Next time 43 seconds faster though to have the privilige to start at the preferred wave at the front of the whole pack. Didn't realize I was running on a potential time below 1h35 despite +277m D, whilst I was running on a 1h38 pace chart as training run for the Marathon of Rennes sunday, october 22 😁 Upcoming: 22/10 Marathon Vert Rennes, Brittany France (42.195km) #course #instarunfrance #runaddict #hardlopen #ikloophard #hardlopenisleuk #hardloopnetwerk #relive #ilh #laufen #fitdutchie #running_feature #runnerswanderlust #run2day #igrunnerz #igersfrance #igersbelgium #igersbelgique #igersholland #runnersworldnl #seenonmyrun #runyourworld #strava #relive #runtoexplore #kalenjirunning #decathlon #asics #imoveme #tomtom #igersnpdc . .
First action photo of the 20KM of Paris. Besides running downtown the city of light, I also got selected to go to anti-doping control. . As proof of my good behavior, I received a frisbee and a flyer about the danger of doping. It's a good thing that doping control exists, even when you are not a pro-runner. Whilst I passed the test, there was another runner who had something to explain because he was tested positive. . . About the race. Despite the legs felt a bit heavy and +277m D in the track, I ran the race nice and flat with a negative split of exact 12 seconds. . . I started on a time plan for 1h38 over 20KM, ran it a bit too fast with 1h35:42 though. Main objective is the Marathon of Rennes over 12 days from now. . . Now the only regret maybe is, why I didn't run the 20KM just 43 seconds faster which will give me a seat in the preferred starting wave for next years' edition of the @20kmparis πŸ˜‚πŸƒπŸ˜‰ . .

For everything is a first time : also for anti doping control ! So, we can say I made it as a real international runner ! πŸ˜‰ I was asked to follow the organisation to have a pee followed by an anti doping test and an interview. . . About the race. Official time 1:35:42, +277m D. . . I started on a plan for a time around 1h38 for the 20KM. Ran it a bit faster though. . . The track I liked very much. Start at the Eiffel Tower to Avenue Foch near Arc de Triomphe via Bois de Boulogne to the Seine. . . Very well organised. So, thank you 20KM de Paris @20kmparis πŸ‘Š ! . .
