Lungs and legs recovered

stats of the week: run 37km, cycled 42km, gym 4h

To get back to faster moving and to test lungs and legs I spontaneously joined a local 10k race. The new course turned out to be a very hilly route with a steep road which had to be climbed five times. Not too much for alpine proved muscles!

Although I didn't do any speed training all summer I was able to run faster than at my last short race, a flat 5K 2 months ago. 45:45 min was better than expected. The conclusion for me is that I should stick to regular hill training as it seems to make me stronger.
