Torments of an old man

stats of the week: run 39km, cycled 25km, gym 2h

The half marathon in Dutch town Venlo, called Venloop, is certainly one of the most atmospheric races in Europe. Big enthusiastic crowds and lots of music escort about 7,000 runners along the route. It's an event not to be missed.

My own performance was inside expected limits. 1:42:10 is not a bad result. But the final Ks were such a torture to my body that I wonder how often he will accept this kind of torment until he knocks me down. My feeling is I have to be more cautious if I want to get older.
