Apart from needing to shed a few kgs, I think I need to join in this madness as part of my integration to danish life. So today I took action.
I went for a walk to scope the local forest "MarielundSkov" for future 5 - 10 k runs. What a find. This little gem has been siting on my fridge door in the form of a tourist brochure (in Danish) for months now. Rather like one of those sponsor a starving African child photos or a forgotten gym membership card.
Only 700m from my door and the trails continue for 20km out of Kolding. I only walked about an 8 km loop where I discovered lots of trails and single tracks along creeks with little hills etc. There is great amount of variation for a small place. In short a beautiful place for a run. It also has marked mountain bike single tracks with various difficulties and obstacles.
Now all I have to do is fix my Achilles...again. Worst case I have a beautiful place for a walk.
