Running in the Kanazawa hills
Sometimes I needed a short break from work, and usually I go a bit running. Normally I run between five and ten km, just around our flat. But yesterday I somehow thought it might be a good idea to run through the hills near by. I usually drive up there to a climbing spot or a cafe, so it will for sure not be that long. Well, my estimation was wrong …
Turned out to be 20km and quite a trip up and down, in fact 560mH running up wasn’t what I could actually do, so I walked the steeper parts. Due to the permanent rain the views weren’t that great, but one gets a feeling how far it is back to town.
I used my new fenix 5x for the run (was helpful with the built-in map, report later), so I got very detailed data from Garmin Connect. Not that I really understand what it is all for, but Garmin told me that I am overtraining and that I am not a good runner (due to vertical oscillation etc). I guess there is a whole lot to learn and improve.
Anyway, I made it back alive, and the first thing I needed was loads of water to drink 😉
