I RAN MY FIRST HALF MARATHON! + VIDEO

Wednesday, September 07, 2016

On august 27th 2016 I ran my first half marathon, it was really hard, but the coolest thing I have ever done, by myself! I finished my race in 3 hours and 6 minutes, which I think, was amazing! For some people that might have been a very slow time, but for me that was quick! I think I could have done the race 10-15 minutes quicker, if it wasnt so hot. It was 21 degrees and almost no wind. It was horrible weather to run in, because it was so hot, but I still finished and I´m not dead!  

I didn't do any run training before the half marathon, because I get shine splints whenever I run. Should I not have done the race, because of that? Probably yes, but I did it anyway. The first few kilometers were easy to run, but after 6 km, my phone stopped working, and it wouldn't play music anymore... Luckily I had a iPod with me as a back up. But when I hit 15km the iPod also stopped working, so I had 6 km to go without music, I was in a really good mood, so it was okay. On the last 6 km, my muscles started to become stiff, so I had to stop every once in a while to hit on my legs, so loosen up my muscles so I could continue. After 3 hours and 6 minutes, I ran over the finish line and finished my first half marathon.The weirdest thing about all this, is that I did not have any problems with shine splints what so ever when I ran. I have no ideas why, this is the only time I have every run, with out it hurting. But i won't complain about it, I just dont get it.

Den 27 august 2016, løb jeg mit første halv marathon, det var virkelig hårdt, men det fedeste jeg nogensinde selv har gjort. I løb løbet på 3 timer og 6 minutter, hvilket jeg synes er mega godt! For nogen er det nok en mega langsom tid, men for mig var det hurtigt. Jeg tror jeg ville kunne løbe løbet 10-15 minutter hurtigere, hvis det ikke havde været så varmt. Det var 21 grader og næsten ingen vind. Det var forfærdelig vejr at løbe i, fordi det var så varmt, men jeg gennemførte og jeg døde ikke. 

Jeg løbetrændede ikke for mit halvmarathon, fordi jeg får skindebetændelse hver gang jeg løber.  Skulle jeg ikke have løbe løbet pga det? Ja, det var nok en god ide, men jeg gjorde det alligvel. De første par kilometer var nemme at løbe, men efter 6 km, ville min mobil ikke afspille  musik mere... Heldigvis havde jeg en iPod med som backup! Men efter 15 km, stoppede min ipod også med at virke, så jeg havde 6 km tilbage uden musik, men jeg var i godt humør, så det var okay. På de sidste 6 km, blev mine muskler stive, så jeg var nødt til at stoppe nogen gange, for at banke på mine muskler for at løsne dem lidt op, så jeg kunne løbe videre. Efter 3 timer og 6 minutter, løb jg over målstregen og jeg havde fuldført mit første halvmarathon. Det mærkeligste var at jeg overhovedet ingen problemer havde med skinnebensbetændelse da jeg løb. Jeg har ingen ide hvorfor, fordi det er den eneste gang jeg har løbet, hvor det ikke har gjort ond. Jeg vil ikke klage over det, men jeg forstår det bare ikke.
