So I might as well race that thing.

With about 5 minutes drive from my current workplace there weren’t many arguments not to run that road 10k on Wednesday night.

Still tired from Dolomites Skyrace and the runs early in the week this was the best way to get a quality speed session in. I warmed up for 30 minutes and went straight to the start line.

As expected I had a tough one. The course didn’t do me any favour. It was a slow race with some climbing. When I passed the 5k sign I made a quick calculation in my head and found out that this was already my 50th kilometre for that week. Not bad. Overall a tough but worth run. Despite jogging 38 flat I won the age group. The winning time of a high 33 shows that the course was not a fast one.

A quick cool down in the evening heat and straight on to the great cake buffet. Wednesday night racing. You gotta love it.
