It’s not me anymore! Yes I am as surprised as you. This might be the post run dopamine talking, but I feel like I get faster by the minute (Microsoft minutes … not linux minutes though).
During today’s run I again got 3 new “MAF” PRs. This time I ran 1 km in under 8 minutes, my fastest 5k (42 minutes) and a mile in 12 minutes something.
What I found pleasing though is to realize my transformation from 1 year ago … usually I don’t run in the park and not that late, so I met a lot of unknown runners. There was someone just barely faster than me who had to walk after he had overtaken me. There were others that had to include walking breaks as well. I just ran around like clock work, switched off brain and processing the day ahead (programming in the head while running is highly recommended).
Last year this was me. Running a bit then walking and watching others tick by … hoping that some day this would be me. Now it is me …
