After the London marathon my knee swelled up so I was off all of last week. Managed to get some training in this week though, but had forgotten about one little thing - The Stuttgart Beer Fest! On May 1st its a German holiday here so we close the showroom and take a bus load of pals down to The Stuttgart Beer Fest for a day out. Its kind of like the famous Munich Beer Festival but is a little smaller. Loads of Beer, big liter ( 2 pint) sized glasses, fair rides and beer for breakfast lunch and dinner!
We had a great craic and back home on the bus by 2330. i normally feel really rough for days after this but managed to get to work the next day and done a full day.
Some of the mayhem..
Made up for the missed sessions today with an hour bike ride and then 11 km run. Totaled just under 5 hours for the week. My legs were still feeling tired from London i think though, so it was difficult to keep moving on the run today.
Looked at the calendar today and see that its only 5 weeks til the next marathon. I am going to make sure there are no more big (beer) sessions between now and then!
