Aiste from Lithuania talks to Christophe about his running.

 

Aiste: Hello, Christophe. What are you doing this afternoon?

Christophe: Hi, Aiste. I think I’m going to run this afternoon.

Aiste: To run? But it’s raining outside.

Christophe: I don’t care. I love running in the rain, and I have to run because I am training for a marathon.

Aiste: A marathon! Isn’t that like some 100 kilometers of running?

Christophe: Oh, no. A marathon is a race where you run 42 kilometers. It’s a long distance, so you need to train every day for it.

Aiste: So do you actually run 42 kilometers every day when training for it?

Christophe: Oh, no. Actually, a good preparation for a marathon is about 12 weeks of running, and you never run for 42 kilometers in one training. You never do this because it’s actually very, very bad for your body if you would do that, so you run a maximum, like 32 to 34 kilometers.

Aiste: Every day?

Christophe: Not every day of course. I think, right now, I run about 80 kilometers a week, but that’s almost every day, 10, 15 kilometers that you have to run.

Aiste: And how many marathons have you done already?

Christophe: I’ve already ran about four marathons, and now I’m preparing for my fifth marathon.

Aiste: What is that going to be like?

Christophe: Well, actually, I hope to run less than three hours. It’s quite fast. It’s like fourteen kilometers average during forty-two kilometers.

Aiste: Whoa! That sounds difficult. I’m not really into sports very much, so I think for me, even a five-minutes run seems kind of difficult and requiring lots of endurance.

Christophe: Well, in the beginning, it’s hard maybe, but once you try running a little bit longer, you really start liking it, so I would recommend you to do one training with me and you start slow and then you build up slowly until you can run five, maybe ten kilometers, and then you will see, you will get addicted and you will love it too. I think in a couple of years, you will run your first marathon.

Aiste: Oh, that sounds great, but … I really don’t think it’s for me.
