Morning sprint

With Gabriel running ever faster around Skaryszewski Park in Warsaw, I realized that I had to sharpen up and set a new PR on 5k. As the autumn storm raged on outside, I managed to keep a pace of 4:16 min/km on the treadmill, something that would have been completely unthinkable a year ago.

I take this as further evidence of the benefits of building aerobic capacity over time through long-duration training. Even as I rarely do any high-intensity training, I was still able to improve my 5k time with almost a minute and even have energy left for my usual gym routine afterwards. Now time to meet the political philosophy class for one last lecture before their exam.
