Running totals for 2008: 1382 km, 123 hours, 11,2 km/h

My personal running totals for 2008 are at a record high. Increased training paid off:

  • I made a new personal marathon record at 3:55:22 in Finland 16.8.2008

  • I made a new personal half marathon record at 1:45:58 in Munich 29.6.2008

  • I ran a total of 1382 km (plus 10 %)

  • I ran a total of 120 times (almost every third day)

  • I ran over 100 km every single month

  • I increased my average speed from 10,8 km/h to 11,2 km/h (plus 4 %)

  • I spent over five days of 2008 on the run (123 h 4 min 8 s), which amounts to 0,95 % of the year

  • I ran 82 times around Isarwehr in Munich, 13 times around Sellmo in Nagu, Finland and 21 times elsewhere

Blue = 2007, green = 2008: Consistently over 100 km/month!

In my blog entry about the 1259 km I ran in 2007 I set these goals for 2008:
For 2008, I look out to run more and faster than 2007, and to be able to support more mountaineering, more snowboarding, and perhaps a “trans Alp” on a mountain bike. Whether I’ll go for my fifth marathon somewhere remains to be seen.

I still haven't biked the trans Alp, but I made the other items beyond expectations! If things go on this way, I will soon consider myself a former coach potato. But perhaps I had better not pursue such a thought, since then I might risk stop running.
