Nature strikes back

Varvetmilen 2019 came off to a great start. I was pacing 3:52 min/km for the first kilometre and my knees were not protesting. On track to run at least as fast as I did three weeks ago at Umemilen, it all came to an end about eight kilometres into the race when I just had to go to the bathroom. But sometimes nature is nature and you have to accept that.

After losing two minutes and being forever grateful to the owner of that summer house, I made it into Campus Arena and completed the race on an official chip time of 46 minutes and 31 seconds which is still two minutes faster than last year so, in the end, I think I am fairly happy with the outcome.
