Two weeks are up and Julius was eagerly awaiting my arrival to come and pick him up.
And I was very happy to not only to see him happy & healthy, but also his new certificate showing that he now boasts Level A2 in German!
He actually learned & improved.
In the evening I went out for another planned half marathon along the river Nidda, this time fully aware of the route. And even though I thought I was going mellow, I ended up with the very same 5:19/km pace and surprisingly my heart rate was way up (which I had not really noticed) and thus all my stats regarding relative effort went through the roof.
