Another Half Marathon Completed!

This morning I decided to run another half marathon if I could so I got ready, put on my head phones (I like music on long runs), and off I went :-)

I ran almost up to Sydhavn station and then headed towards Fisketorvet Shopping Centre. I stopped here for a quick drink. Then I ran all the way along by the water past the Royal Library, and then over the bridge into Christianshavn. From here I ran the long way down towards the beach, got lost and turned around and headed back down to the beach.
I decided to run along the road next to the beach today as I didn't much feel like running on ice. Once I got to the SAS Hotel I headed up Kastrupsvej and then onto Vejlands Alle and then home.

I ran this half marathon in a little over 2 hours. I'm not sure of the correct time as I actually ran just over 22km. This I did in 2 hours and 7 minutes so I suppose the half marathon was in around 2 hours and 5 or 6 minutes.

This time I managed to get to 20km before I started to have trouble so I must be getting better :-)

I forgot to mention that I have read lots about the benefits of Beetroot Juice for runners so I tried some before my run today. It did seem to help my energy level lots and now I have really cool red wee!


  1. Great run!

    Beetroot juice? Hmm. That's a new one on me...I'll take a look.

  2. Thanks Paul :-)

    I'd been reading a lot about beetroot juice in English running magazines so decided to give it a go.

    Just to let you know that I ran some of the Copenhagen Marathon course yesterday and there were cobble stones but they were the modern kind that are even so were much easier to run on.
    I think there are some sections of the course that has the old fashioned cobble stones but not too much :-)
