2 weeks already gone since I was running in Patagonia. Used this time for regeneration of body and soul. Had a lot of carbohydrates and fatty sausages in Chile which are usually very restricted in my diet. I also gained several Kg, but that I will run away easily. A runners body needs this off-time and lazy hangouts once in a while. At the end it makes you faster.
But now off-time is over and tomorrow morning 7:30AM I will run my first trail marathon in a huge forest spot in Wuxi, an hour away from home. Never was running a race on a trail so I will start without any high expectations. The course has a total ascent of 1180m, but most in the first half of the race. So it should be not soo hard.
