Augsburg/Munich town run – 21km

As I mentioned in my about me text, I like to run … fast. Some time ago it was just a meditative recursion but now I am addicted.

My first half marathon in my life turned out to be a success. Placed as 42th of around 1000 on a very nice sunny Sunday in Augsburg, Bavaria. Finishing time: 1:33:45

Last Sunday the 25th of June at 08.00 am in the early morning I participated in the town run in Munich. Over 20000 enthusiastic people took part in this competition. My target was to beat the 1:30h but … not yet. In the end I finished with 1:32:10 which is an improvement nevertheless. The sunglasses were obsolete, very rainy and cold.

 

That’s what my contest preparation looks like:

  • running 3-4 times per week about 20km. Sometimes rope jumping at the end.
  • Split training of various muscles with dumbbells and a professional adjustable bench about 4 times per week. (Ironmaster)
  • 2 times per week stretching and basic yoga exercise.
  • Cycling every day about 10km to work, if the weather tolerates that.
  • Sporadic swimming a bunch of 100meters in lakes or open air baths.
  • Once a week bouldering with friends.
  • Slow juiced vegetable and fruit juice. A balanced and healthy nutrition – most of the time 🙂

 

Best regards,

VCAP 6 Deploy – it’s a pass!

Last year in 2016 I was able to pass the VCP 6 which is just multiple choice and no big deal.

Some weeks ago I managed, after hard practise in my own vSphere 6 LAB, to pass the VCAP 6 Datacenter Deploy exam.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Despite the annoying high latency and other restrictions I made a whopping 377/500 points :). Next I am going to schedule the VCAP 6 Datacenter Design exam. After passing this gem, I will be able to call myself VMWare Certified Implementation Expert.

 

Feel free to ask questions regarding my lab preperation.
