My preparations for the skating marathon continue: I spent an hour exploring the landscape around Linz a bit. Last week I managed to run 37,7km in 99 minutes. This is an average of around 23 km/h. Not bad. For the upcoming marathon this would mean a final time of 1 hour and 50 minutes, ten minutes below my original plan of running the track in less then two hours. So I guess 1:45 is a possibility. Let‘s see how it all works out.
