A long run was always a satisfying thing the day after a race. I remember going so darn slow the day after I set my PB at 10,000m. It was a very satisfying race. I remember just focusing on the laps, one after the other, and when the bell rang, I just took off. For the first time, in a long time, I felt like I was flying around the last lap.
The race was so satisfying. In looking back at it, I felt that I was running as close as I could to the edge, and I stayed close to that pace for 24 laps. It was on the final lap that I let myself go.
Have you had a race like that?
