reporting back from the walking dead.
Unfortunately I suffered from a ankle injury on the side of my right foot. This nasty cutback didn’t heal as fast as I expected maybe I escalated too hard on the treadmill.
Luckily I was able to recover but had to drastically reduce my training workload. That’s why I didn’t report for almost three months. I am thrilled that I am back very refreshed and hungry for new personal records.

at first I want to make some announcements because my life changed radically: new job, city and a whole new life setting at all.
The last months were exciting and exhausting with a lot of work, despite that I enjoyed every second to be alive in this time of huge potentials.

got a new announcement for you.
Next month on Saturday the 05.08 I will attend a mind boggling 100km walk called Mammutmarsch. At some point i try to run a part of the distance. In any case the time limit is 24h. Registration is still open if you like to participate :).
Start and finish is in Munich and I will pass by two major lakes in Bavaria, Starnberger See and Ammersee. Challange accepted!
Furthermore the next defiance will be the Bodensee marathon on 16th September. Two days after the VMWorld, the excellent balance.
Pictures will follow.
As I mentioned in my about me text, I like to run … fast. Some time ago it was just a meditative recursion but now I am addicted.
My first half marathon in my life turned out to be a success. Placed as 42th of around 1000 on a very nice sunny Sunday in Augsburg, Bavaria. Finishing time: 1:33:45
Last Sunday the 25th of June at 08.00 am in the early morning I participated in the town run in Munich. Over 20000 enthusiastic people took part in this competition. My target was to beat the 1:30h but … not yet. In the end I finished with 1:32:10 which is an improvement nevertheless. The sunglasses were obsolete, very rainy and cold.
That’s what my contest preparation looks like:
- running 3-4 times per week about 20km. Sometimes rope jumping at the end.
- Split training of various muscles with dumbbells and a professional adjustable bench about 4 times per week. (Ironmaster)
- 2 times per week stretching and basic yoga exercise.
- Cycling every day about 10km to work, if the weather tolerates that.
- Sporadic swimming a bunch of 100meters in lakes or open air baths.
- Once a week bouldering with friends.
- Slow juiced vegetable and fruit juice. A balanced and healthy nutrition – most of the time 🙂
