      Marathon Berlin. Official time: 3.07.51 I'm happy! In spite of my right calf injury I ran the Berlin Marathon pretty well. I started a little bit too fast and my right calf was painful. But I was able to stand it! The weather was not so good: only rain during the marathon. But the Berlin Marathon is great event!! I'm happy!

      Louis, I would ask you a great favour! I'm planning a trip to Amsterdam next October and, as it happens, they organise a marathon there at that very time. I might even try it out, once I'm there already. ;) But my request to you concerns recommendations on where to stay in the city. Which city area is the most popular among the locals at the moment, with many cozy places to spend the night around? I'm not interested in an area filled with tourists, department stores and sightseeings..

        Johanna, sorry, for my late reaction. I wasn't at Movescount for a few days. I should run more..... In Amsterdam there are always a lot of tourists. The Amsterdam Marathon is sunday 18 october 2015. You can run the marathon but also a half marathon or a 8K-run. I hope to run the marathon! There are some areas that I can advise to stay: the Jordaan or the Pijp Or in the neighbourhood of the Vondelpark. You shouldn't stay in the area Central Station, the Dam. Too many tourists!

        Please, let me know if you go Amsterdam! I hope you have a nice time there!

      • Cinnaberry


        Thank you! I had already spotted Jordaan as one of my favs but this confirmed it - just have to find the perfect B&B around there now. :) Or then Pijp, at least it sounds great! We've already booked the flights and I'm just waiting for the main sponsor to confirm if it is willing to pay us for the marathon participations - or let us run for free. But it's not an expensive race anyways. We'll be on the start line together then! :)

      • louisoortman


        Did you already find a B&B in Amsterdam? And did you registrate for the marathon? I've been 8 days in Istanbul. Now I have started the training for the marathon. I have a lot to do..... Nice that we wil be together starting in Amsterdam! :)

      • Cinnaberry


        I just arrived back home from Mallorca myself as well, so no action taken towards Amsterdam yet. We haven't booked a room but it'll be an Airbnb flat from Joordan area. For the marathon registration, there'll be no hurry before August, I believe.

      • louisoortman


        The limit for the marathon is 16.500 runners. Registration is possible until 9 augustus. Registration can stop earlier if the 16.500 runners is reached. I think you should registrate end June or begin July. But first getting and staying injury free and running....:)

      • Cinnaberry


        No hurry yet, it seems.. ;)

    • Marathon Fitness Estimator

      Running, Estimate. qistat

      This app calculates an estimated Marathon pace in decimal minutes per mile by means of a Daniels vdot conversion from a sub-maximal running effort. This can be very useful for monitoring fitness over time. The app does not take into account elevation change or temperature. I wanted to include those factors but the code was to long for ambit 2R compatibility. Thus it is best to evaluate the estimated vdot result from a lap on flat terrain in moderate or cool weather. Temperature will only be a minor factor in the first few miles. Values become fairly accurate after a steady state HR is achieved. You need also to have entered an accurate maximum HR for this app to produce accurate estimates. Remember that all models are wrong, but I think this is a useful approximation.
