Still a bit too hot for me to get going properly. Had three 10k runs on a treadmill this week but since the gym has a pool I think it was more humid inside than it was outside. Hoping to have a long beach run in the morning as long as I can get going before it gets too hot.
Don't think there is much likelihood of heat problems in Berlin during September. Hopefully my pink bits will settle down by then! 12 weeks tomorrow guys.
Phil, The last time I was in Tempelhof airport was 1991....that looks like the same plane! I've been back a few times since then and always found it to be a great city. They seem to have managed to recover from World War II destruction a little better that the east end of London!
Thanks David. I guess I'll have to fight with the masses on the Saturday. I get in on Friday evening but just before the Expo closes. My wife will arrive a bit ahead of me but I see from the website that they need a pick-up in person.Hopefully if I get there for doors open then it won't be too bad on the Saturday morning?!
Did my first ten miler of the year this weekend so hope that is the start of things to come. No warm weather training though; there was ice on the trails around Aviemore. Hopefully I can now move forward and build upon my long runs. I have a bit of plantar faciatis again but since I know what it is, I think I can manage it.
I'm kind of hoping that nowhere in the centre of Berlin is going to be too far from the start and that public transport will plug all the gaps. Anyone have any idea of how busy the number pick-up would be on the Saturday?
