Enjoyable race day

stats of the week: Run 44km, Cycled 112km, 2 gyms

Although I didn't feel really fit and the knee was slightly hurting I took the bait to race in the neighbourship. A fairly small event - apart from hundreds of kids - of hilly tarmacced 8 laps of 1 km. It was as tough as I expected and I finished 1 min 39 secs slower than two years ago.

As you see I didn't compete all-out but it was still a very tough time to clock at 38:45 min what placed me 12th out of 49 runners overall. Looking back at recent weeks of very low key training I didn't cherish any illusions. It was a highly enjoyable day - due to all the pleasant people I met.
