Not slow, not fast

stats of the week: run 16 km, cycled 70 km, indoor cycled 1.5 h, gym 3 h

Still suffering from the bathroom fall I realized that the pain disappears when running. So what! I decided to test my performance at a 5 K charity run. Would have been happy with a sub 25 min and surprisingly ended up with a sub 23. However, the fastest man in my age group finished sub 19.

An awareness not really new: I am not slow but also not fast enough. Should I be able to train properly for a couple of months an improvement of one minute at 5 K might be possible. Alas, I know I should be happy to be able to jog and enjoy it. Nonetheless, I am reading Joe Friel's book "Fast after 50". A bit late but hopefully not too late.
