Working Hours Mean Working Hours

When many Americans think of Germany, images of WWII soldiers and Hitler often come to mind. But what many people don’t realize is that Germany is the industrial powerhouse of Europe, and is a leading manufacturer of goods for export to developing Asian nations. We don’t hear about the superiority of German engineering in Volkswagen commercials for nothing!
The economic engine of the EU, Germany single-handedly saved the Eurozone from collapse in 2012. At the same time, German workers enjoy unparalleled worker protections and shorter working hours than most of their global counterparts. How can a country that works an average of 35 hours per week (with an average 24 paid vacation days to boot) maintain such a high level of productivity?

Win #2

Today, I experimented with a long run and a hard race. I started at 5am for a 18 mile long run.
Got home ate some and drove to race a 5km race at the Freeman HS.
Time was slow (18:12min), but I felt pretty good for the first 2 miles, than my legs locked up.
Good test and another win in the books.
