Best Run Times at the End of 2019

It’s time for another one of these posts, obviously just for my own use, likely including as a way to stay at least somewhat motivated. That’s actually been a problem recently and is likely to become even worse of one, but I already signed up for this year’s half marathon and marathon, so I’ll need to keep it up… Assuming my nose and breathing issues won’t prevent that. Yesterday’s time definitely showed that some problems exist, but there were plenty of other explanations as well, so I won’t read too much into it just now and, either way, that run is a matter for another post… One which I guess I’ll need to write by the end of the week but schedule to show up next week in case nothing will change I’ll be left without suitable Internet access. Right now trying to lose myself in some numbers seemed like a much better idea.
Same as a year ago, I didn’t copy the times for the shorter distances, so those are still in the first two such posts. Since it was nothing like my usual runs and not relevant for these purposes, didn’t include last year’s Dream Trek Summer Edition either. On the other hand, did copy the times for that 35.2 km run through the park and the marathon though, and have now included some additional comments as well, but the usual notes are in the same format, with the first value representing the distance and the second the lap on which that particular time was achieved. And the times still include only the seconds, ignoring the fact that I now usually have exact ones as well and those may change some things. Still consider adding the dates as well, but was also thinking about it a year ago and didn’t then, so probably won’t do it now either.

Note: Only the best time from a year ago is still here now, having dropped to fourth.

16 km (through the park)
Note: This is the first time it’s actually a matter of the best times over this distance, since a year ago I had covered it exactly ten times. All seven such runs from 2019 made the top ten, so only the top three times from a year ago are still here now, the first having dropped to fourth.
